Memories Timeline


  1. Frank was a good friend of my older brother, Bill Carr, in high school. Frank and Bill along with Roger Schilling and Richard Lynch spent lots of time at our house playing cards and talking late at night. I remember Frank as a very intelligent guy with opinions on many topics. My dad bought a horse for me from Frank—a gentle and well trained buckskin mare that I loved.
    I send sincere sympathy to Frank’s family.
