A WWII Veteran (F Company, 2nd BN, 35th Infantry Reg, 25th Infantry Div, US Army) serving in combat on Guadalcanal, Luzon, Vella Lavellaa, and the Solomon Islands. He received a Bronze Star and 2 Purple Hearts. He always said he was not a hero-the heroes were those who never made it home alive. He was very proud of his service to his country. In the 1960's he began reaching out to those with whom he had served. That grew into a project putting over 500 of the 700 who were in F Company during the war in touch with each other. He loved music and would sing to anyone who would listen. He loved birds, growing tomatoes, and playing cards with his friends. Private Family Service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Frank's honor to the 25th Infantry Division Association Scholarship Fund; American Legion Post #373, or to any organization supporting our Veterans.
