Frank was a phenomenal grandfather, too. He had four grandchildren, three grandsons Julian, Jeffery Jr., and Stephen Henry and his only granddaughter, Aarianna Henry. He loved his grandchildren more than words could explain and he would do anything for them. He never hesitated to support them when it came to academics, sports, pleasure and rodeo! Frank loved watching his children and grandchildren grow and excel through the years, there was nothing else that made him more proud.
