Frank was born and raised in Chicago. His father, Frank, was in the Class of 1925, and his uncle, Robert, was in the Class of 1937. As a city boy, Frank bicycled to all the great Chicago museums and especially to the Chicago Yacht Club, where he became a member at age 13 and was fourth senior on the roster at his death.

Frank attended Lake Forest Academy and came to Princeton with the Class of 1957. After a two-year sabbatical with the Army, he returned to join 1960. He majored in engineering, played inter-club hockey, and became president of Elm Club.

After graduation Frank joined Illinois Bell Telephone, where he spent 35 years, and finished his career with AT&T successor Lucent Technology. He married Penelope in 1961. They shared a love of travel and sailing. Frank was an avid racer and particularly loved the annual Chicago/Mackinac Race. He also enjoyed tennis, golf, hockey, music, and bridge. He is remembered as his son’s soccer coach for always arriving directly from the office in a three-piece suit and wingtips. He was a faithful, not always fortunate, fan of the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks. Our sympathies go to Penny and all their family.

Frank is survived by Penelope; three children; and seven grandchildren.
