Frank was a great guy.  As I recall, he was a year older than most of us, and this fact (being draft age) led a few of us to play a prank on him during the Cuban missile crisis.   We obtained some official looking stationery and sent him a fake letter (with a few inherent hints that it was bogus), drafting him into the armed services.  After a couple of weeks, he had mentioned nary a word to us, so we inquired about it.  "Oh, THAT letter...I turned it over to the FBI", he said.  Of course, he had done no such thing;  but he did let us twist in the wind for awhile.  Our little prank had backfired.  Frank, you are missed.  Rest in peace, dear friend.
