Carol, Pam, Deb, Greg, When I heard today this sad news, I was flooded with so many memories. From Satanta, to Missouri Flatts, to all the visits through the years. You were part of our family in so many ways. I don't think my Dad respected any other cowboy as much as he did Frank. Your Dad was the real deal. Always there to help, with a smile on his face. Hold each other close and know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you all!

Carol, Pam, Deb and Greg, please except our deep sympathy on the loss of your loving husband and father.
Fank was always so kind and welcoming to Tom when he moved from Minnesota and to me when I moved from Virginia. His fun sense of humor, his love of the livestock and land and his devotion to his family made him one of a kind. A friend that will always be treasured.

Peggy, I have totally lost contact with Dumas and Beaver since moving to Stillwater, Oklahoma in July, 2017 but do try to keep up with families and friends through funeral directors and a close friend left in Beaver subscribes with Herald Democrat in Beaver for me. I am so sorry for your great loss and pray for all. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. May God bless and give you peace, comfort and strength to go on forward.
