Frank liked to draw ever since he was a small child. He also enjoyed fishing with his family, and playing with his dog, Shaddy poo. In 1966, At the age of six, his picture of a freight train hung in the Nelson Art Gallery in Kansas City, Kansas for a year. In December of 2010 one of his rock carvings was displayed in the custom Motorcycle magazine Thunder Road. He started working with sandstone rock after he moved to Elk City. His rock sculptures embrace many yards.

 As a child, Frank liked to invent things with his Erector Set. He made a contraption that had a string between two devices. When the string was tripped, it made a loud noise. He put it on the floor in front of his bedroom door. First, he called the dog, and scared Shaddy Poo so bad, the dog wouldn’t go back into his room that night. Then he scared both his sisters and made them yell. Then, he set the device up at night before he went to bed, and when he got up the next morning, he tripped it off and scared himself. So, he took it apart and made a truck that ran. To leave a special message for the family please visit Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Webb & Rodrick Chapel and Crematory.
