Frank actually died in South Gardena, which may be a neighborhood of Los Angeles.
On his death certificate, his father was noted as Henry Alms, and his mother's maiden name was Duhme. Both were native of Germany. However, his father is buried under the name of Herman Alms, with a link to Margaret Duhme Alms. It is likely that Herman's middle name was Henry. The death certificate of Frank's sister, Louise Alms Gardner, in 1914, gave the names of her parents as Henry Alms and Margaret Duhme.
His death certificate was informed by his daughter, Ethel Alms Shirey.
His remains were initially placed in a vault in Angelus-Rosedale Cemetery in Los Angeles, on August 11, 1915. On March 13, 1916, a permit to remove his remains and send them to Kansas City, Missouri, was issued, however, the name of the cemetery was not noted.
