After the army, he studied aeronautical engineering while working a full-time job, and in 1962 received a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from San Diego University. For the bulk of his professional career, he worked for the Veterans Administration as an IT supervisor, both in Los Angeles and at the Presidio in San Francisco. In 1991, at age 62, he retired and returned to live on Maui.

Many remember him reading in his truck with a flashlight before his morning cross guard duty! Frank loved fishing and so looked forward to his annual trips to California to reunite with his son and close friends to revisit their favorite fishing spots.
