Frank joined the United States Navy in 1955. He was stationed on the U.S.S. Intrepid and was stationed in Bainbridge MD., and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. He traveled to France and Ireland. He was a Vice President of the former crewmembers association and served on its board of directors.
After his tour with the U.S. Navy, Frank rode with several groups, as well as the Brooklyn and NYC H.O.G. chapters. He was a Rolling Thunder member for nearly 30 years and was instrumental in the creation of Chapter 1 Brooklyn and the former Chapter 2 Brooklyn. He was the founder and Chairman of the Board of Rolling Thunder Chapter 2 NY, where he was looked up to and respected by over 100 members.
In his memory, Frank’s wife and children have decided to form a Scholarship Fund in his honor. It will be open to high school seniors applying to college as well as students already enrolled in college.
It will be available to the children and grandchildren of veterans, as well as to those students who volunteer for veteran causes.
