nearly 37 years, Colleen; his darling daughters: Karen
Cassetty, Christl (David) Ray, and Katie (Chris) Graves; the
joys of his life, grandchildren: David (Maria) Fulcher, Rachel
James, Aidan and Zoe Graves, and Summer Ray; and great-
granddaughter: Elsie Grace Fulcher. Also surviving are his
sister, Robbie (Harold) Chapman, sister-in-law, Jean Curtiss,
David Stafford, who was like a brother to Frank, and numerous
nieces and nephews.
Some of Frank’s happiest times were spent flying as a
Captain for TWA over 24 years, and his days at the farm.
Frank was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother,
friend, and a true gentleman. The family will miss him and love
him always. The family wishes to thank, especially, all the
caregivers at The Gardens in Mt. Juliet for their loving and
compassionate care over the last 2½ years. You made our
