Frank was a Lieutenant in Ladder Company 34. He is remembered by the members of both Ladder 34 and Engine 84 for both his leadership and knowledge as a dedicated fire officer. The safety and well-being of his men was always his primary and overriding concern.

Franks "dry" humor could always be counted on to bring a smile to everyone's face. He was promoted to Captain and was assigned to Ladder Company 35 in Manhattan. On September 11, 2001 he led his men in one of the greatest rescue missions in Fire Department history. Frank's memory will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone who had the great pleasure of knowing him
