He was an avid fisherman who delighted in spending countless hours casting lines into calm waters.

These simple pleasures brought immense joy to his life.

His presence brought immense joy and happiness to their lives.

He is also survived by his brother Irvin (Rosemary) King and his sister Anita (Mike) Ross. Their bond was unbreakable and filled with love.

Frank is preceded in death by his parents John and Emily King, a brother Warren King, and daughter Melissa Heise Feigel.  

His kind nature left an indelible mark on the hearts of all those fortunate to cross paths with him.  As we bid farewell to Frank, let us cherish the memories we shared with him and find solace in the thought that his spirit will forever reside in our hearts.
