I first met Frank and Susan about 47 years ago. He had not married Susan yet. He set-up the second BFN ham fest at a place called High Pastures in the NC mountains. He and Susan attended many of the ham fests. His dedication and commitment to Jesus Christ were evident as he shared his experiences on the Bible Fellowship Net. He was a serious student of the Bible. Being bilingual, he used his Spanish skills when he and Susan went to Spain. On Saturday’s, while in Spain, Frank would meet us on 7.1625 and share his witness for Christ. Frank would often share what it was like being filled with the Holy Spirit. I will always remember his love for Jesus Christ. I am sure this Bible verse applies to Frank: “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
