Left this world to wander the stars on October 8. Born in Albany, Oregon, October 18, 1948, grew up in Salem before joining the Army and travelling the world to find his wife Faye on a ski trip to Austria.

Sons Chris (Jenny), Paul (Terri), daughter Chelsea Center (Erin), grandchildren Lily, Gavin, Colette, Mazzy and Crue, and brother Dan (Debbie) are heartbroken by his passing, but thankful his battle is over. He bravely fought brain cancer for 14 months, but it never defeated his spirit.

Frank was a man of many talents and careers: 23 years flying helicopters in the Army; 15 years as a sheriff’s deputy in Salt Lake City; and a volunteer and professional ski patroller for over 20 years. He leaves untold myriads of Brighton Ski Resort memories and friends. His was a life well-lived.

To all who have known and loved him, remember him on a deep-powder run, a golden day on the golf course, a Jeeping trail or a motorcycle ride on a glorious fall day.

So plant a tree, donate to your favorite cause or to Partners in Care Hospice, Bend, who have been wonderful caretakers of this man of my heart.
