When he wasn’t working he loved to go fishing. When Claire was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he dedicated his life to caring for her.   In May of 2008, Frank and Claire moved to Eau Claire, WI to be near their two sons Craig and Kevin.  Frank continued to pursue his interest in genealogy and his love of music. Although the 60’s were his favorite generation, he enjoyed listening to many different genres.
