Published in Sept. 8, 1999, issue

Frank, of Palm Desert, Calif., died Mar. 26, 1999. He was 84.

He prepared at Lawrenceville. At Princeton, he majored in philosophy and was v.p. of Court Club. Early jobs after graduation were: Art Publishing Co. of NYC, Glen L. Martin Co. of Baltimore, and Sperry Gyroscope Co. of NYC. He entered the Army Air Force in Mar. 1944 as a private and served stateside until Jan. 1946, retiring from active duty as a first lieutenant.

Frank spent most of his business career as a sales manufacturing representative. At age 40 he became a licensed airplane pilot, owning a Piper Cub. From there on he made most of his business calls by air. In Mar. 1960, Frank and a passenger were returning to Denver from Albuquerque in Frank's 1959 Beechcraft. Near Denver there was a heavy snowstorm, and all nearby airports were closed. Frank looked down through a break of the clouds and made a smooth landing on a two-lane highway!

Frank and his wife, Rolande Andrea Seguinet, whom he married in 1942, made numerous visits to Europe and the Far East.

He is survived by Rolande, sons Roland P. D., Francis D., daughter Anita F. Newman-Muņoz, five grandchildren, brother Jim, and sister Marianne. Frank lived an eventful life and was a loyal Princetonian.
