    Franky you were an amazing person. Malachi has been practicing your favorite song you always wanted him to play on the jukebox “neon moon”.

You made a great impact on everyone’s life and made sure you left the room with everyone smiling you will be missed always

  • Mau Samayoa says:

    ¡Frank! humanamente nos faltó tiempo para cumplir el sueño de unir a toda la familia y celebrar juntos la vida. Pero espiritualmente sabemos que siempre te tendremos presente con nosotros. Gracias por tus detalles, por consentir tanto a tus sobrinos y por siempre saber sacarnos una sonrisa con tus chistes y ocurrencias. Permanecerás vivo en todos esos recuerdos y nos encargaremos que Ignacio sepa el grant tío que eras y lo mucho que lo querías.

    ¡Un abrazo hasta el cielo!

    We were so fortunate to have you as long as we did, but somehow feel cheated that you have left us so soon.
    All of the great memories, starting off with the big smile and warm hug. The laughter, the tears, all of the silly shit. What I wouldn’t give for one more dinner, party, raft trip, karaoke night with you.
    One of the most selfless, compassionate, giving, and loving individuals any of us will ever know.
    Rest In Peace Soldier. For we will never see the likes of you again.

  • Amy Knight says:

    Your candor, your collaboration and partnership made such a resonating impression on me Frankie. I love that you weren’t afraid to bring any of this on at any time. To trudge through hurdles with you was a true honor. I miss you. I miss your random IM calls. I miss seeing you on my screen. You were a true teammate. Thank you so much for YOU!

  • Charlie Brown says:

    Best friend to many, will be missed by all!! Frank, you touched so many of us that it’s hard to describe what words to use without getting emotional. As Tammi packs for our trip, I sit here in Disarray as tears fill my eyes. Hoping that this is just one bad dream. I miss you brother!!!

  • Amanda Apodaca says:

    Frankie, you had a positive impact on so many. Thank you for your service to our country and for your kindness that shined through during every conversation. You will be missed!

  • Cynthia Munoz says:

    Heaven has gained another Angel.
    When they broke the news of your passing I couldn’t believe it. You always managed to make me laugh with your jokes and stories. I loved how you’d teach me how to make drinks and claim you’d taught me how to bartend. I always felt comfortable talking to you. I saw you as a caring loving person (even though you were tough). Every time you walked in the restaurant I knew I was going to have a fun time with you there. I still can’t believe you’re gone and I hope one day we meet again. You’ll forever be loved and missed Frankie

  • Albanita Erebia says:

    They say the best humans don’t belong to earth, they belong in the heavens. That’s you. Your passing has been the hardest to accept. Your voice, your laugh and smile will always be with me.

    Frankie…you taught me so much, especially how to love and be loved. Our spirits always matched and I thank you for all the 1st time experiences you gave me. Thank you for it all. I’ll never forget the day we met Salsa dancing and how you had me laughing so hard, the pumpkin patch, Kid Rock, wine tasting and Sabroso was our Sunday religion because you knew I loved dancing and I knew you loved wine tasting, that time we pranked my mom, the stories we shared, all the war movies you forced me to watch, that time you defended my honor, and evenings sitting under your porch watching the rain. It all meant so much to me. There is not a time that goes by without me thinking of you over the years. You are the kindest man I’ve ever known, hard working, assertive, and above all humble and loving. I’ve always admired you. We were never deserving of you and now you are with God at peace. You will always have a sacred piece of my heart. It hurts to see you go like this. I Pray that one day I see you again. You have warmed so many hearts! Rest easy Charlie. 💔 With love, Lucy.

  • Cris Bryceson says:

    Frankie you are the friend of friends, it wasn’t the same at kid rock, and having fun with the signs from the lodge, you always had the best joke’s, I am so proud to have you as a best friend, I knew you would have fun driving go karts, so now you and Ralph can drive go karts together. RIP my friend, my Brother, love you

  • Martha Erebia says:

    For 43 years, God shared one of His most Beautiful Souls with us on this earth. I can’t blame him for wanting you back with Him in heaven.
    Your passing has left my heart aching and broken. My comfort will be knowing how blessed I am to have known you and remembering all the great times we spent together.
    You are one of a kind will be greatly missed. Thank you for your Service, your jokes, generosity, kindness, but most of all for showing us how to treat and love people and each other. I will keep your Spirit alive in me and pray that we meet again with our Creator.
    Love always, Martha…

  • William G says:

    Frankie, I already miss you so much, but I know you somehow continue to love & protect all your friends & family.
    Love you always brother

  • Marsha Aranda says:

    You touched so many lives and you had such a presence about you. You were so giving and you loved to help those around you. You are definitely missed. You were an Angel on earth and now you are back with God. Rest In Peace Frankie.

  • Daniel Erebia says:

    Frankie you’re going to be miss buddy, you’re one of the most genuine people that I’ve known. When I’ve talked to you, during our conversations, I’ve always seen in you the happiness that you showed, but hiding some sort of sadness. You’ve touched a lot of people’s in your journey during your time here. I know I will see you someday in God’s Kingdom. So I’m not going to say bye. I’ll see you later. We all love you.

  • Chi ❤️ Chinh says:

Peace and love.
