Frank and I graduated from ETSU together. We hunted and fished the Sulphur river bottoms around Commerce together. We had science classes together. Gwen and Frank were great people. Frank was an outstanding person. He served in National Guard out of high school and went to work for P&W after college. He stopped by to see me after he became a Texas Game Warden. He told me National Guard and college was a cakewalk to becoming a Game Warden. He was so proud to be able to serve. He was one of the most dedicated man I have ever known. I am looking forward to seeing him in heaven. God bless his family.
