While living in Utah, he became involved in flying RC controlled airplanes and building and launching rockets. He also loved snowmobiling, riding his ATV, traveling in far-away places, RVing, and especially spending time at Bear Lake.
Frank was an original founder of the Utah Rocket Club (UROC) and was instrumental in obtaining the permissions from the government to use the land that the club flies from every month. He was the club's National Association of Rocketry advisor for years and as such was responsible for assisting hundreds of rocketeers in certifying through the various levels of the hobby.
He belonged to Masonic Gateway Lodge 29 in Clearfield and the El Kalah Shrine in Salt Lake City. His favorite Masonic activities were riding his little red Klunker car in parades and being a member of the Heroes of 76.
He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Dorothy (Dot) and sons David (Lindi) of Salt Lake City and Gregory of Manteca, California. Also surviving are seven grandchildren.
The family would like to thank the personnel at Ogden Regional Hospital for the loving care he received during his illness. We also wish to thank the nurses and doctors at the hematology clinics and the Layton Rapid Response Team for their wonderful, timely compassionate service.
A celebration of his life service will be held on Saturday, September 25 at 2 p.m. at Lindquist’s Kaysville Mortuary, 400 N. Main Street.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Utah Cancer Society.
