God bless you, Frank, for all your years of faithful service to the community, including First Congregational Church of Appleton. Loving prayers for Florence and all your children.

Frank’s generosity is evident. After a little influence by myself and Don Griesbach, Frank committed to the financing of the Heckrodt Wetland Reserve building, without hesitation .The design of the building was by Marathon Engineering and construction by Boldt Corporation. The Reserve turned out to be one of the jewels of Menasha. Credit for this investment should go to Frank and his brother Bill.

My sincere condolences to the family. Losing a loved one is never easy. Death was never a part of God's original purpose for mankind. May you take comfort in God's future promise to bring an end, to all suffering and death on earth. Revelation 21:3, 4 and Isaiah 65; 21, 22.
