I worked with Frank when he was the BA for Local 100 in Scranton. He accepted me in as an apprentice in 1966 and I have been a union member ever since. I then worked with him when he was a coordinator with the Job Corps as one of his instructors in his Region. He was a good man and treated everyone fairly and with respect, Rest in Peace.
