Read this....uncanny. What goes around comes around. Who knew that FG had the dreaded C word? It's all hush hush around his illness. I think good old Chet has it too.

How can you be so rude and inconsiderate? This is someone's husband, father and grandfather. How can you be so insensitive? Whether the family wanted to publicize his condition is up to them. It's cancer it can happen to anyone, even you! Didn't your mother teach you to stay quite if you have nothing nice to say? Don't be so rude during their time of mourning.

We're all going to die! Some just die with the lack of respect or compassion due to their own doings! This man was a liar & a coward!

You ask how someone can be so rude and inconsiderate, how they can be so insensitive? Wasn't Frank's actions of knowing the carcinogenic well being used for 20+ years rude, inconsiderate and insensitive? Frank knew the well tested positive for carcinogens and other very harmful chemicals, but turned the other cheek, just like all the rest of cowards that knew and didn't have the balls to stand up to Chet and blow the whistle!!!!

Hundreds of husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, sons, daughters, brothers,sisters and friends and neighbors were sickened with cancer and other chronic illnesses and many paid the ultimate price with their lives. Did Frank care about them? Did he care enough to blow the whistle? NO he didn't......none of them did. So lets just say he set his own fate.

It's always sad when someone dies
Frank did gave his heart and soul to the village for many years. He always tried to show that he had no problem seeing. He would talk to you and turn toward your voice and sometimes when he couldn't really see too well he would make sure his sunglasses were on. He would always recognize a persons voice and be able to talk up a storm
Years ago there was a PT Officer that use to play a crazy prank on him when Frank would head home (driving after traffic was all but gone on side streets) and Frank never caught on for years those of you that wee around at the time would remember and everyone would crack up at it.
RIP

Hey Big Guy! Maybe you would know this? I'm in my 50's and even when I was a kid, Frank's eye was f'ed up? Do you know why....seriously? I was always too scared to stand next to him thinking I may get a "funky eye". Please tell us all about the police officer prank....please?!
