I read that it was heart complications due to pneumonia.

I never meet Frank in person but saw him busy working Top Gun since way back when it was at the Polo Grounds in Palm Beach, he would go from one competitor to another checking on everyone and offering help. I first heard of Frank from a close friend, he had just built a Ziroli DC3 and needed fuel for the Webra Bully engines, he called FTE for the fuel and Frank said bring the plane let me tune the engines before the maiden, he spent a whole afternoon making sure the engines ran perfectly.
Frank for years supported our club events by supplying us with some of his merchandise, to be given to the attending pilots.
His loss is a great blow to our hobby he will be missed, my condolences to his wife, family, and close friends, may he RIP.

Never met Frank. Wish I did but always read how supportive he was for anything R/C. A sad day for the hobby, his family and friends. Condolences to all. May he now rest in peace. Fair winds my friend.
