I knew Frank from growing up in Riverside. Also when staying with my friend Margaret Gubbins family vacation home in Big Blue Lake Michigan! The Lopatoss also had a summer home near by.. Frank was always around. After many, many years I saw him again at his pizza place on 31st street. He was always so welcoming., and so friendly. Such a nice guy and shared many memories with my brother Joe and friends. Also my parents were very good friends with Franks parents. Rest In Peace Frank.

Lopi and I have been friends since kiddiegarten, remember well when we talked him into being our goalie and we had to fix all the dents in the garage door only to do it again the next day. Have many more stories of our miss-guided youth, my pal.
