Frank was born August 13, 1931 in Tyler, County, Tx. He graduated from Nederland High School in 1949 and served in the USMC from 1950-1954, receiving the Purple Heart. He fought with the courageous 1st Marine Division, later known as the "Frozen Chosin," at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea. While on leave in 1951, he met and married a beautiful girl, Marie Mabry, the love of his life.

Frank attended Lamar Tech in Beaumont, Texas, ran for the Texas State Senate in 1970, and was one of the founders of Texas Baptist College in Longview and Baptist House of Faith in Kilgore, where he pastored for 12 years. The majority of his career was spent in the oil and gas industry. Frank's mission in life was to share the gospel and the truth of God's Holy Word. "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him," I Corinthians 2:9 KJV
