He was a great man! Loved everyone he met and was a leader. He loved Nigeria and it loved him back! He will be missed.

Franklin was my great friend since we met in 2004 here in Kenya. We did so many technical jobs together. We had a promise to meet again this year again in Kenya but due to Covid 19 things didn't work out well. Fare thee well my mentor till we meet. I pray .

He was a very hardworking Missionary back in Nigeria, a member of our church Christway Baptist Church, Jos Nigeria. My family still enjoys his gifts of wardrobe and family/marriage devotion, titled Moments with you presented during and after our wedding. We'll surely miss him. May our Lord comfort his family in Jesus name.

Carole, I am grieving along with you.

Frank and you took such good care of us during our many trips to Gombe. I will never forget the biggest surprise he gave to us...after three super hot sunny days, no electricity, and very little sleep in those tents, you and Frank showed up in the village. We stood around talking and then he said, "We brought you something..." and then he pointed to the cooler. I said, "Well that's nice, but we don't have anything cold to put in there." His reply was, "Open it up!" When I opened it up, there was a cooler full of frozen water bottles!!! I'm almost certain I heard a choir of angels singing as i held one of those bottles on the back of my neck!! That's the type of people you were to our church and the teams we sent. Amazing!

Frank will be missed, and you are being covered in prayer!
