Condolence & Memory Journal

I was so sorry to hear the news today about Frank. I met Frank in the Structures Lab at Chrysler in Highland Park when we were both new employees. I enjoyed working with him. When our career paths went in separate directions I always enjoyed bumping into him at work and catching up. He was a hard worker and a good friend. Life isn't always fair. Frank is gone too soon, but I'm glad I knew him.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Frank's dad at Mardigan and at Chrysler. I first met Frank when he was about 12 years old and rabbit hunted with him and his dad for many years. Also working in another department at Chrysler, I did have some contact with him through work and watched him grow as a man, husband and father. I pray for strength, peace and understanding for you at this time.

Frank was like a big brother to me and my brother Bill growing up. Being an only child I know he liked coming to our house. There are countless weekends where he stayed with us, or Bill stayed at his house. We are 6 months apart in age. We celebrated our Holy Communions together. My childhood is full of many memories of Frank. I will miss you dearly cousin. Some cousins feel like siblings. Frank was all that to me. Namaste

Frank was always such a happy face to find in the lab when I had to do testing when I worked at FCA. We always talked about race cars. I remember him getting a perfect 300 game at our safety bowling tournament and we cheered him on! I recently lost my father to cancer as well, it sucks. My thoughts are with you all. RIP Frank. - Kendra Blocker, former co-worker.

So sorry to hear about Frank. What good friends you were to us! I'll never forget parking on Detroit River in your boat & watching 4th of July fireworks or our trips to the Nationals to watch funny cars race. Good times were ours and prayers for you as you go forward with love from family & friends. Love, Patti Mayers (Budowick)

Frank was a great guy, excellent technician, and managed people well. I worked with him many years at the Chrysler Highland Park Engineering Center and also at the Chrysler Technology Center in Auburn Hills. Always fun to be around, great personality, and loved to share and tell stories of his many hunting, fishing experiences. Peace Be With You Frank, you will be missed.
