Dear Faye, Please know that we are praying for you & your family at this sad time. Frank was a funny guy, a man who was always willing to help with what was happening at Salem, and now he gets to be whole & healthy in the presence of our Lord. What a great day of rejoicing when all of us, as Christ followers, will be reunited with those we love & who have gone before us!

May the Lord uplift you, give you peace, strength & comfort in the days ahead. Love in Christ, Clark & Donna

Dear Faye and family,
I just learned of the passing of your husband Frank. I didn't know you and Frank well but you always treated my mother, Willie Wagner, with compassion, love and respect. She thought the world of both of you. Please accept my condolences.
Kathy Slonaker and family

It was with much sadness but many smiles as well that I learned of Frank's passing. What a great guy. We had many, many experiences together from our first meeting at PBEA to our classes together at Ship and other occasions too numerous to mention. Frank would always have the greatest stories to tell and wisdom to share. I feel that he made me a better leader both in the professional organization we were members of and as a business educator. I have communicated with many of the people involved in PBEA during our time there to share the sadness I feel about Frank's passing. They all wish to share in my condolences to the entire Gaugler family.
