Frank and Cathe are "family" to me and I am brokenhearted. He and Cathe opened their home to me any time I was in the Chicago area and wouldn't hear of my staying anywhere else. Frank was an excellent tour guide when I visited and I came to truly look forward to spending time in Chicago because he made my time so special. Frank was a safety professional as am I and we had many fruitful conversations about our love of providing safe working conditions for those who labor. This world is truly diminished with his passing and I will miss him so very much.

So sad to hear the news of Frank. One of our fondest memories was when he set up a Halloween "bobbing for apples" experience with all the kids in the neighborhood. He was definitely "always up to something" and that "something" brought lots of laughs and love. Cathe , sending you love and peace! Kim, Joe, Kalle & Megan

Frank was a beloved friend and neighbor for 13 years. He played Santa for our young children and was part of a fun weekly "food network" texting group in which he consistently had me laughing out loud. Godspeed Frank.
