I first met Frank in the fall of 1977. I was the new graphics teacher at Lackey High School and Frank was two doors down entering his second year as the wood shop teacher. We become friends quickly and best friends not to much later. During the next year of teaching, we decided to start a small construction company that consumed our summer and became a year round venture. Frank found a first time homeowners program, sponsored by the state of Maryland and bought a new house, then I soon followed two blocks away. He met Barbara and they made a wonderful couple. Barbara had a lovely young daughter, Lori, that would put a smile on anyones face. Then along came a baby boy and they were so very proud and happy. Then a beautiful baby girl and then another beautiful baby girl. It was my sincere honor to be named Godfather for each of them. We bounced from state to state over the years from Maryland, to Houston, to Florida and for me back to Houston again. Careers drove each of us, but regardless of who landed where, we always remained close. The kind of relationship that if you had not seen each other in months, when you did, it was like yesterday. Frank was a proud family man, having his Godfather live with the family for a time and later his mother would live with the family. He worked hard, had many interests and hobbies, but always had time for an adventure with family and friends. I am so very proud of my good friend and the great family that he leaves behind all to soon. I have thousands of stories, but I will just say goodby to my good friend and continue to remember the wonderful experiences that we had.
