After retiring, he moved to Caney and purchased a home near the Zoo. He joined the Caney Valley Antique Power Association (CVAPA) aka “the tractor club” located just north of Caney and helped build it to a successful club where like minded people could gather and stretch the truth about how good their tractors are.
He was great at everything, could build anything, and liked to help others.
Family was most important to Frank and particularly in beating them at cards (3-13) or dominoes. He enjoyed hunting and especially fishing.
