Frank will always be remembered by my family for his efforts to save my infant son who tragically passed away in 1995. He was first on the scene, took compassionate control of the situation, and although unsuccessful, valiantly administered infant CPR until the EMT's arrived to relieve him. His willingness to respond although tasked for another duty has always had my respect for his dedication to service for his fellow citizens.
