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 .
