My  wife  and  I  want  to  express  our  condolences to  Franks  family  on  his  passing. Frank and  Marilyn helped  us  when  I  started  for  Graybar  in  1979 .  I  worked  for  a  competitor and when  there was an opening at Graybar  in  late  1978 , I  talked  to  Frank about coming to Graybar .He  must  have  said  the  right thing  because  in  2009  I  retired from  Graybar. I  always  enjoyed  working  with  Frank.I met his son  and  daughter-in-law from Ohio at the West Allis  Memorial Hospital last year.He  was  proud  of  his  family .  Semper  Fi .
