Frank started his CNG career in Human Relations and rose to Chief Administrative Officer before retiring in 1996. Frank attended Slippery Rock College in PA where he was on the swim team and received a Bachelor's Degree from University of Hartford. Those who knew Frank appreciated his dry sense of humor which he kept right through to the end. He loved skiing and enjoyed many winter weekends with family and friends at his home in Mount Snow VT. He and his wife Loraine served as ambassadors at Mount Snow where they met many lifelong friends. He was a member of Manchester Country Club where he played many golf rounds with his dear friends of the Breakfast Club. Frank loved sports and was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates fan but he was most passionate about spending time with his kids and beloved 8 grandchildren. He never missed an event with his Grandchildren and took them on many summer trips that they will remember forever. His passion for sports is handed down to his children and grandchildren who will miss his love, guidance and support. His wry sense of humor and storytelling will be missed by all that knew him.
