Frank was born on December 3, 1920 in Linden, New Jersey. He enlisted in the Navy in 1939 during WWII and discharged as a Chief Petty Officer in 1945. After the Navy, Frank attended Rutgers University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering in 1949. Dad married the girl next door, Dorothy Sofie Sweet on May 8, 1949.
Frank worked for the Army Research and Development Group in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, for 27 years as an Electronics Engineer.

Frank and his wife Dorothy retired to Lighthouse Point in Palm City Florida in 1988.
Frank enjoyed his career as an Electronics Engineer immensely. He had a strong work and family ethic, always busy, never sitting still. He loved sailing and fishing throughout his lifetime.
