    Frank was on the Greenville Police Department while I was working EMS.-á He was bigger than life and you never messed with Frank.-á Later when I became a Reserve officer he imparted some old school knowledge.-á I only worked a short time as a full-time officer before he retired.-á I visited Frank a few times when he was in RNC at spectrum Health a few years ago.-á I still didn’t think I wanted to meds with him. Rest easy Frank!

    One of my earliest memories is of Uncle Frank coming home from Korea and having gifts for each of his nieces and nephews. Mine was a black and white stuffed panda bear which became my best friend for a long time. He always had a big bear hug and a wonderful sense of humor. Always strict but always fair. You are going to be missed by many people dear uncle. Give mom a big hug from us and we love you still. Alice Faye Blumberg Lanning
