You will be Missed I learned so much over the years from this man, Sometime good sometimes not so good. We will all remember the countless fishing adventures we had with you. From making bets through out the day on fish you caught, to the days the fish weren't biting and so we decided to fish for seagulls and then laugh like crazy watching you figure out how to unhook a live biting seagull from your line. Stories and jokes that only you could ever tell right. Work to hold down three snapping turtles to make soup out of then realizing you had 4 turtles to start with and these things were mean. Staying up late nights playing cards and taking all your family's money wink emoticon we could go on all day about the adventures, crazy things we learned, and all the knowledge this man had, you will be missed you are in a better place. Keep the reels dunked in water lubed up, bait ready, and boat running because there will be day we will all be in the boat again.

It's amazing how time goes by and once again life humbles you makes you reflect back on every sloppy kiss, funny joke, forgotten fishing wisdom or secret fishing holes that only were shared with God himself. My wish for you uncle Franky may you catch the big one every day, and the sunset shine on your hidden fishing holes. We will miss you smiles and your jokes and most of all I will miss those very wet sloppy kisses love you always.

Frankie my great uncle will be greatly missed. He was a great joy to be around and always making jokes and teasing it didn't matter what the situation was he would make you laugh. One time he was fishing with my brothers and they actually caught a seagull with some Fritos on a fishing line my brothers said it was really funny and I will never forget that story. He will be missed in in our hearts forever. Rest in peace, I miss and love you!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Hello Patty, Elaine, & Carol: Even though I met your dad later in life, he was a Special Guy to me. Will never forget the fishing trip with Him and the boys to Canada. Especially when coached down the bald eagle with 2 feet of our fishing boat. Never had seen one that close before! That picture will always be special to me. Also his reaction when I told him about his daughter carol jumping into big cedar lake on a warm night with all her clothes on. Precious times and also with good old Joe up there as well with us. You and your family are in our prayers.

He will be missed. Sorry for your loss. Our boys (David & Tim) remember our trips to Wisconsin going fishing and playing cards with Uncle Frankie. One fishing trip stands out when the fishing was slow and they stop to eat lunch. A Frito was put on the hook and casted out and in mid-air a seagull caught it. We had to reel in the seagull to untangle it. The seagull wasn't too happy. Imagine a seagull with its wings flapping around fighting with Uncle Frankie. He will always be remembered, forever missed and always in our hearts.

Patti, Denny, Carol, & Elaine: I’m very sorry for your loss. Your Dad was truly one of a kind. In addition to his harmonica playing he was quite the jokester. I remember riding in cars with him and when a car would come from the other direction he would begin to raise one of his hands as though he was about to wave and of course the other driver would respond with a wave. But your Dad’s hand motion would continue up to his head and he would make like he was straightening his hair and not waving.

I have many fond memories of Uncle Franky! Ice fishing with him and my Grandpa Resheske, him playing his harmonica, teasing us as kids (and adults), but my favorite was of him reading the poem he wrote for my husband and I on our wedding day at the reception. Rest in peace Uncle Franky, you were loved!

The smile on his face, his 'sparky' personality and his love for teasing will long be remembered. I may not have known him all that well but the things I do remember of him, make it all that much more fonder. Sympathies to the family.
