Many times, he was awarded for record-breaking fish caught or award-winning prize deer or fowl. He mastered his hobby and love of woodworking, hand making furniture pieces for his home. Philadelphia sports was an important part of Frank’s life. Whether it was the Eagles, Flyers or Phillies, he loved to watch the games and root on his team. In 1956, Frank enlisted in the U.S. Army.
