Dad was a mighty and passionate servant of the people for 38 years plus. will have more coming up


  1. RIP Frank. You served your city well, council has not been the same without you, nor will it ever be. Frank was the only member that you could not email, only phone calls for Frank. And he answered every one of them. I loved that about him. A long life dedicated to serve us and his city. Thank you.
    Sincere sympathy to the family.
