    Frank was a joy, I had the joy of volunteering w/ Frank @ Priority Two for more than a decade. Frank instituted the most comprehensive & yet practical tools for networking ever. It was his analytical nature, he couldn’t help it. We followed each others career changes over the years. Frank is always credited with his networking techniques, to the adult students I now teach as an adjunct faculty member. Frank will always be remembered fondly! God Bless You You are in our prayers Craig “Buzz” & Barb Conroy Gibsonia, PA
