Frank was a very religious family man. He was a long-time member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Burlington. Frank enjoyed bible study with church friends. He had many hobbies including gardening, mushroom hunting, tinkering with and fixing lawn mowers, and horses. He also collected Western items and arrowheads in which he either found on the farm or at flea markets in the area. Frank will be remembered as a quiet man and will be missed by many.
