In May 1951, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge from the U.S. Army, Frank met Wanda June Robbins, the love of his life, in Aspermont, Texas.
The couple were married in June 1954 and Frank began his career as a pumper in the oil field.
In 1960, they moved their family to Tioga, North Dakota, where Frank continued working as a pumper.
The family moved to Gillette, Wyoming, in 1962, where he operated a roustabout service until he retired.
The couple moved to Rozet and built their dream home on 340 acres where they grew a large garden, raised chickens, grazed cattle, and enjoyed the country life.
Frank was a life-time member of the American Legion. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family and friends.
Frank will be remembered by his family as a wonderful provider, loving father, and great teacher.
Frank is survived by his wife of 65 years, Wanda; daughters, Jackie (Ken) Adair; Judy (Dan) Fritzler; grandchildren, Heather (Jon) Carnahan; Stephanie (Larry) Casteel; Parker Teske and Josh Rambin; along with eight great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
