Frank was many things… Master Cabinet Maker at his shop, Quality Woodworking for 30+ years and was always honest and fair. A Gardner with his wife Rita, they loved spending time in the garden and grew many varieties of flowers, but I think the yellow rose was one of dad’s favorite. Fishing with his family on Sunday’s (the only day he had off) from the time I can remember. His fish fry’s were well known and attended by many family and friends. He enjoyed, later in life, fishing with his Friend Dick Stockard and son Gary. Golf was another part of his life, playing in many tournaments, like the father-and-son tournaments and winning a few times. Frank also sponsored a Wednesday night twilight golf teams that won several seasons. Frank also got a hole-in-one on the 4th Hole at the Twin Falls Municipal Golf Course during a 4th of July golf scramble, fortunately he purchase the hole-in-one insurance as he had to buy a beer / drink for all the golfers. Frank also enjoyed his weekly visits with Lee Olivas and Finnie Morales.
Frank was also known for his poems that he recited often. He was able to make people laugh, always willing to help someone, was always happy and never held a grudge. Till we meet again, we love you.
