Frank was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was known to most people as Frank. He could not go anywhere without someone stopping him to say hi. Many people knew him as Mr. Lincoln. He resembled the 16th President of the United States and had a great love for him that he wanted to share. Many times he went in character as Lincoln to auditoriums, classrooms, and patriotic gatherings to bring Honest Abe to life right before their eyes.

Frank loved going fishing and especially taking his children fishing. He took time to individually talk with and teach his children. He especially loved the Lord and the scriptures. He served a Spanish speaking mission in Texas. He had a great love for music, especially the hymns and religious music. He enjoyed singing and performing and encouraged his children to cultivate their musical abilities.
