Notes:  Frank graduated from Napa schools and later served as a Navy Seabee master mechanic on Eniwetok Atoll during World War II.  After returning to the states, he worked for Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) for 46 years in Sacramento and Placerville, California, as a lead/master mechanic.  Later he held positions in El Dorado County at PG&E's El Dorado Camp II, Bucks Lake, and DeSabla as a year-around trouble-shooter.  A longtime Butte County resident, Frank and his wife Velma moved to Paradise in 1956 and subsequently to the small community of Nimshew in 1964.

Frank was a member of the El Dorado Masons, the DeSabla Grange, the Paradise Historical Society, the Butte County Historical Society, the Retired Employees of PG&E, as well as many philanthropic organizations.

Frank's favorite hobby was cutting wood for friends and family.  He actively continued falling, bucking, and splitting wood up to the day of his death.  He passed away at age 87 years and 10 months.
