Frank supported his family with numerous jobs over the years. Alongside general electronics repair, he worked as a radio technician for the City of Macon and an engineer with broadcast stations like WBML. He also owned Bloomfield Communications Company, a service for communications maintenance.
His technician talents were put to great use with the State of Georgia Department of Administrative Services. He helped with the installation and repair of communications equipment for agencies like the DNR, DOC, GBI, GFC, and GSP, and he played a vital role in establishing the State Wide Paging System. He retired in 1996 as the Paging Transmitter Engineer.
Frank’s primary passion in life beyond family was HAM radio. He was a devoted operator and advocate for the hobby. He was always ready and willing to help others learn the ropes and jump into the fray with his expertise.
