The family lived in Wabash and Jackson townships of Jay County for many years, but by the time Frank was born, his father had located on a farm outside of Winchester in Randolph County, Indiana. Frank was living in St. Louis by 1947 but returned to Winchester for many years before moving to Santa Ana, California, where he lived out his life. He was a laboratory technician and worked long hours in the late 1940’s during a polo epidemic that caused many deaths in Winchester, Indiana.
