We are so sorry to hear this, he had a huge heart
Thank you for the kind words regarding my Father.
I am so sorry to hear about frank, I had not heard anything about this till today. I was looking him up and instead of finding his contact information I found this. I’m saddened by the news.
Frank was a great guy and a great father to Daniel. He was one of a select few locals that I could call friend instead of acquaintance, and he will be missed. If there is anything Daniel needs that I am able to provide, please don’t hesitate to contact me. My phone number should be in Frank’s phone.
Thank you so much for reaching out. I appreciate your genuine care for my brother and the kind words towards my father
You will be missed dearly my friend

I am still shocked by Frank’s untimely death. He was a good and honest man who loved and sacrificed for his wonderful young son. He was the best mechanic, loved his work, and my preferred go-to for my classic cars. I’m going to miss him and pray that the Lord pours his love and comfort and provision on Daniel and his family.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a message about my father. He had a true love for classic cars. Your prayers for my brother Daniel are appreciated in this time. ???? ????
