He is survived by his first wife Irma Ruth Appelgate and second Jeannie Appelgate, his children: Linda Ruth, Francesca, Michael, Jaclyn and a granddaughter Amani. Frank is also survived by his younger brothers: Kenneth and Jeffrey.

Frank enjoyed life to its fullest.  Must say he delved into many activities, amongst them roller blading, off-road motor biking, moving along the ways from the East Coast to living in Missouri.  Frank had a passion for Jeeps for sure.  Lastly, Franks latest humer was balancing a Dorito chip off his new mustache.
