Frank died April 14, 2022, in Denver, Colo. He was 85.

He came to Princeton from Middlesex (Mass.) School, where he participated in football, basketball, and baseball.

At Princeton, Frank majored in architecture, was in Orange Key and Ivy Club, and was active in interclub sports. His roommates were Eddie Dunn and Jon Farinholt.

After graduation, Frank entered the Navy and retired as a commander. He received the Boy Scouts’ Silver Beaver Award for distinguished service, and he lived on jigsaw puzzles after COVID hit. He loved his family, especially his wife, Sharon; he loved this country; he loved the Navy; he loved the Boy Scouts; and he loved the Colorado mountains. A lengthy but compelling memorial by his grandson is on our class website as a remembrance.

Frank is survived by his daughter, Gillian Hegner Carlton; his son, John Casper Hegner; and his grandson, Madison Witt; and his brother, A.A. Lee Hegner ’66. The class extends its deepest sympathy to them all.
