Farmer and Carpenter. He was a member of New Clover Creek Baptist Church where he served as a deacon. He spent his entire life working on his farm, located at 1010 South Kentucky Highway 105, near Hardinsburg. He was known as a generous, kind-hearted gentleman who cherished simple values and humility. He especially loved children.

On June 27, 1964, he married Sharon Virlee Eskridge, a native of Indiana. He and his wife became the parents of one child, Rhonda Kaye.

On February 24, 1974, he was ordained a deacon, a position he held for 34 years.

Like the Savior he worshiped, Frank undertook the art of carpentry. He built various houses and barns in Breckinridge County, and he oversaw three extensions made to the building of New Clover Creek Baptist Church, In the summer of 1974, he assisted in the construction of the west wing, and then the east wing in 1977. In 1986, he participated in the extension of the south Sunday School rooms and basement.

Having a keen sense of humor, he enjoyed playing pranks on his friends and family, the stories of which have outlived him.

He frequently gave away vegetables and produce that he raised on his farm, a way of ministering to people in the community.

At the time of his death, he was driving his Blue Holland Tractor westward on U.S. Highway 60 in the Hites Run Community of Breckinridge County. For unknown reasons, his tractor veered into the path of a semi tractor trailer truck loaded with wood chips, which had been approaching from the rear. The two vehicles collided, leaving Frank beneath the tractor and dead at the scene. Over 750 people attended his funeral visitation and memorial service, a testament to the many lives he touched.
