Just heard about this happening. †I am saddened. †Frank worked for my dad at Collins Auto Parts and I spent several years working with him there. †I caught up with him on Facebook and he spoke highly of my dad and said that he was the inspiration to Frank to start his bar. †I have good memories of the times I worked with Frank when we were younger and am sad for your loss. ----- †David Weiss

May God bless Frank and his family. I remember driving into LaGrange from New York to visit my brother once a year and we always met at the Tavern. Frank was always welcoming and made me feel at home. I enjoyed playing golf with him and conversing with him. He was a true gentleman. His family is in my prayers.

It was with a profound sense of sadness that I read the note from my sister telling me that Frank had passed. He was a good friend through many of my younger years and though we did not keep in close contact after I left the area, when we did run into each other, it was as if the intervening years had never happened. I'll remember the smile, the sparkle in his eyes and the hardy laugh. He will be missed. My condolences to the family. I'm sorry I'm not there to tell you in person. Had I known earlier, I would have been.
