I was a member of Holy Name Adult Choir for many years and allways enjoyed waiting for Frank to pull up in front of the church after he had sung the National Anthem at the Hockey game. He would be heared as the motorcycle escort would accompany him to Thursday night Choir practice. We had a lot of fun in those days. We will miss him.
