Frank's Obituary reads:
GOODBYE MR. "B"
We have lost a good man. Those of us fortunate enough to have known him well, lost a loyal and trusted friend, early Monday morning March 6, 1972, when Frank Billups went to his final reward.
A kind and gentle man, those whose lives he touched were richer for having known him. For many of us, our homes are living memorials to the deft skills and painstaking throughness of this man who took pride in the quality of his craftsmanship . His versatility and knowledge of many skills constantly amazed those who sought his help on tasks beyond their abilities, though his formal education had been limited by the hardship of his youth. Mr."B" was a storehouse of practical knowledge unobtainable in the school of experience. He loved life and he loved his family. A good neighbor, his weakness if he had one, was his inability to refuse those in need of his services.
