  4. Frank you and my sister Mary were like brother and sister, I remember you coming to my house and one of my goats knocked you over. When my sister first met you in 3rd grade you and her were running around the playground and she fell and scraped up her knee. Gina you have been like a second mom to my sister and I. I am so sorry about Frank. I will always be here if you need me. Frank rock the heavens. You will be greatly missed little bro.

  5. Frank, I simply cannot come to grips with your loss. I’ve been in your life since you were 10, growing up with my son Jason, the great times at the farm, and the quality and special times we’ve shared over the past year. Both of us building the pond in the back yard in memory of Jason. I simply could never imagine the loss of my son Jason last May and the void I live with and now you Frank my surrogate son. How I am going to miss our daily texts to each other, checking on each others whereabouts and how our days were going. I love you very much and will miss you tremendously. I will think of you everyday and hope that you are at peace and with Jason. All my Love to you Frank…Dad – Mark Derench and the Derench family.

  6. Frank, My best friend. I think of all the great times we’ve had and somehow continue to stumble across another one. You were always there for me and showed support when needed. All of our journey’s always ended with a laugh even if we didn’t succeed; fishing, bowling, snowboarding, dirt biking, r/c cars, ice skating, sledding, shooting, and so many more. You will ALWAYS be in my heart and still be by my best friend whether I get to see you all the time or not. You leave me with all the good times and great memories we had together. Can’t wait to see you in the next life. Love you and miss you bro,

  8. Frank, You will be sorely missed by the hockey community as a great guy who really loved and respected the game of hockey. IJHL Commissioner Charles Nielsen

  9. I have wanted to stop over many times to console you during this time of suffering. I believe he knows of your presence when you visit and decorate his grave. I never knew any of you or your family but live across the street from the cemetery.

I wish you the deepest of peace and hope that Jade does’t suffer too much as well.. Remember he needs you now too..

Just know that your son, grandson and friend left his mark here on earth and is now onto a different chapter resting in the hands of our lord. Peace be with you all at this time.
