Prayers and thoughts are with the family during this time. I am so very sorry for your loss. Gaytha Adams, May 24, 2012 Dianne, I know how sad and shocked you are at Frank's death. I have been there twice and I know hard it is. No one can take his place and nothing will resolve that sick sad feeling of loss. It will be hard but you can get through this. Time will gradually make it better. Spend time with friends but allow yourself the time to deal with it and cry your eyes out. Just don't spend too much time there. One step at a time. Thinking of you. Linda Pemberton~Phyllis' friend in Austin. Linda Sue Pemberton, May 23, 2012 So sad to hear of Frank's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and Princeton friends. Jill and Laurie Edwards, May 23, 2012 Our hearts go out to you Diane on your loss. May God bring you comfort in the days ahead. Paula and James Fowles, May 23, 2012 Frank was a wonderful Man. He sat in the office next to me and was always willing to go above and beyond to help everyone. My heart holds deep sadness for your family. I will continue to keep your family in prayer. He will be greatly missed by the Conferencing Services team. Kim Reasoner, May 23, 2012 It is always hard to lose a friend. But when he was such a good man, it is even harder. We will always have our memories of him under the Texas skies. Cigar in one hand; a good glass of his special blend in the other. He was one of kind and will be missed. Mike Kramer, May 23, 2012 Frank was always ajoy to be with, be it work or hunting. I always enjoyed our discussions around the camp fire under the Texas stars. A great friend and a great guy who will be truely missed. Jim Pappas, May 23, 2012 Frank and us guys hunted the sprawling Ford Ranch for, I don't how many years. There was George, "Atilla," and Jimmy, "Zorba," and Mikie, (censored), and JW, "Echo Six," and me, "Chain Gun." Most of us were warriors at some point. We would gather for a four day dove hunt at the famous Ford Ranch, and again in December for deer. Frank, "Francios," enjoyed his cigars, and we all would finish long, philosophic evenings out under the stars with fine port as was our tradition. Sometimes the whippersnapper, Jason, would join us older guys, and we soon counted him one of us. It was great to see a Dad out with his son doing serious guy stuff. So Frank, incredibly, was Lock-Mart’s Director of Security for The F-22 Raptor Program, but to us, he was just “Francois.” Farewell, Amigo, and good hunting. John Bonner, May 22, 2012 Dianne, know that you, the boy's are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Howard & Phyllis Schulman, May 22, 2012 To Frank's family; Frank was a desr friend and fellow employee at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. I met Frank several year's ago and we spoke at least weekly. When my son, SSgt Johnnie O. Yellock II was WIA in Afghanistan, last year, Frank sought me out wanting to know what he could do to help out? As it turns out, traveling back and forth to San Antonio during my son's rehab, quickly exhausted my vacation time. Frank immediately donated the hours I was short, what a compassionate man! I miss him so, but have peace in the knowledge, Frank is with The Father, and reunited with his mother, father, and brother. Sincerely, Johnnie Otis Yellock, May 22, 2012 Diane and family, our deepest sympathy on the loss of Frank. God will help you through. If we can do anything to help, please let us know. Robert and Lynelle Willett, May 22, 2012 I have known Frank and his family for many years. He was a fine man and will be missed in our community. My thoughts and prayers go to this family. Helen Lawson, May 22, 2012 Frank is one of those individual you only meet once in a life time. He was outstanding mentor and friend who was always available to help in anything be it family or professional. Above all else, Frank was the ultimate GENTLEMAN who always had a kind word for everyone he met or worked with. Frank will be missed but we all can uphold his life by living up to his standards. Our hearts go out to Diane, Josh and Jason in this time of sorrow, but Frank and Fred are watching over all of us and will see us through these times. Robert Koger, May 22, 2012 All our prayers go out to you and your family. Frank was a special guy and will be missed greatly. Lisa and Todd Ludeman, F-22 WPAFB LISA JANE LUDEMAN, May 22, 2012 Diane, Josh and Jason, I am so sorry to hear of Frank's untimely passing. I have fond memories of him as a first time Dad, fellow co-worker at T.I. and as a friend. He was blessed to have you and the boys in his life and he knew that. May God give you all peace and comfort through this very difficult time in your lives. Love to all, Sharon Randolph, May 22, 2012
