The best stepdad a family could ask for. The jokes, hiding in pantries on the kids or scaring them thinking there was ghost. Always wanting to help and stay busy. Trained me to do compost his way, To crush recycling and especially washing paper plates. I finally started making your coffee just right. The tapping on the floor when you watched tv in your room I miss hearing from the bedroom under yours. Following you around the house and joking about it. I miss you and love you Frank. Until we fight over pie again. RIP and pick those dandelions in heaven. Aka Rosco

Rest In Peace Papa Frank. The kindest, most caring man. We will miss your ”love” for dandelions 😜, the way you would always pop up out of nowhere and scare the 💩 out of us! Your cheerful smile that always brightened up the darkest rooms. Your love for history, spirits and coins. The love you shown all of us over the years is unforgettable. I wish we could all have had more time with you. Till we meet again Papa Frank. We love and miss you tremendously!
