Frank was elected Most Handsome in our class and was just shy of birthday number 68.  While I don't know any of the details on his death, it is another of those tragic too-soon losses.  Frank was always a good sport.  His sister, Emily Walker, worked for us at Baptist Children's Homes and she kept me informed of her whereabouts.  It was great getting to know Frank as an adult, though he always kept that 'little kid' alive down deep inside.  I will miss him.......mickey blackwell

I did not know Frank well until 1990 when I started working with the class reunion committee.  We worked together on the next three reunions & I got to know him well and to consider him a friend.  I saw the many sides of Frank...he could make you laugh & irritate you with alternating breaths.  He was fun to be around, but sometimes he was a drag,  I guess, like most of us.  Above all, he loved old music (some none of us had ever heard of much less heard) & our class of 1960.  He had a boundless enthusiasm for our reunuions & worked tirelessly on behalf of all us to make the reunions successful.  After he moved to Florida & his health worsened I lost touch with him except for an occasional phone call.  I missed talking to him (and arguing about Carolina & State athletics).  He will be missed & remembered, especially at reunion time.

I did not know him at all. He was just one of the best looking guys in Gastonia. Of course this the memories of an old women from our highschool days. I know his family and friends will miss him. We will miss his antics at the reunion.

Frank was a great friend during those school years.  I hope Frank knew how much he was loved when he passed away.  I recently have written lyrics and recorded a song in honor of our deceased classmates and have some names in the song.  I think I will do various versions so that every deceased classmate's name is in the song.  Any classmate who might want to hear the song can send me an e-mail address and I will "attach" the song in my reply.  You can hear it and keep it on your hard drive or burn/record a copy to cd.  I want to include everyone somehow.  Frank's name will be in one version.

It was so very sad to read about Frank's recent death.  He was such a sweet person, and YES, "the best looking," too!  His Father worked at my Father's business for many, many years, and I have many fond memories of him.  Frank gave me lots of remembrances and memorabilia from those years, and I was so grateful to receive these various items.  He made a special point to call and bring this to me while I was in Gastonia.  I will miss Frank!  Those were definitely the good years, and these special Gastonia friends were just the best!

I first got to know Frank our sophmore year at Ashley. Frank was on the JV football team an I was manager of the team. I remember Frank in Mr. Tester's goemetery class. Mr. Tester would get tangled up with a problem and wake Frank up to help him finish the problem. Also have memories of Frank in the Gastonia Boys Club.
