Frank was a born again Christian

Frank's expertise for "making a profit" began at the early age of 12. Hired to deliver Grit newspapers, Frank "sub-contracted" friends to deliver the papers, still making a profit for himself. Buying, Selling and Trading real estate was another one of Frank's many passions in life. He established and owned the Cherokee Land Company and A-1 Bonding Company. He owned Home Sewing Machine Center, also selling TVs and Stereos. Phone calls continued after retirement from people wanting him or his guidance on repairing their sewing machines. Frank was also instrumental in establishing consumer loan companies throughoutGeorgia and southern Tennessee. Leader Loan Company, located in Gainesville, was his last big endeavor before retirement in 1993. Frank's retirement did not stop him from having a very fruitful fulfilled life. His Golden Years were filled with love, peace, joy and comfort from his family and devoted English bulldog Tug. Frank was a very intelligent successful business man, full of wit and humor. Sharing his knowledge and wisdom with his family and friends, FBY's legacy will be truly honored and carried on by those who loved him. There will never be another "Frank". Many lives have been touched and blessed by the presence of Frank. A physical part of our lives will be empty until the day we meet again in heaven.
