Dear Lois and family. I was so saddened to hear of Frank’s passing. I have always been one of Frank’ s friends from the first day I met him. He always said “thank you” when he passed out paychecks, thanking us for the work and effort we had put into the company. He was the best boss I ever had and one I speak of often because men like that are hard to find. He enhanced my faith on many occasions and my work ethic, teaching me that working under his supervision would be a very important learning experience. I am comforted that he is with his Lord and will in years to come remain an inspiration to all who knew him. May God comfort you and embrace you all during the difficult days ahead. As well as all the many many people who loved him. May God be with us all.

I was so fortunate to have had Mr. Hunter as my teacher at Stalker many years ago. He was very instrumental in helping me overcome my shyness. He was one of the strongest influences in my life leading me to become a teacher myself. I am so sorry to read of his passing.

Dear family,

Mr. Hunter was my 6th grade teacher at Stalker Elementary in Bedford, IN many years ago. When I graduated from IU and began my teaching career, he hired me for my first job at Perry Center Junior High. He was a man I always admired and felt it was an honor to have had him as a teacher who inspired his students to always do their best. My prayers are with you and your family at this time.
