Frank became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1974 and the Bible’s promise of the resurrection kept him in good spirits.

He is survived by his wife of 42 years and their four children, Cheryl (David) Anderson and their daughter, Kira, Robert Hewitt and his daugher, Acacia, Tanya (Richard) Breuer and their son, Torrey and Lee Hewitt and his daughter, Odie who all reside in Salem, Ore.
