To Lisa& Shane and family,
From The Krivak Family, are prayers and condolences our with you at this time. Frank and I worked together at Lowe's for two years and he made a lasting impression on me. He became part of our family and got to celebrate with us when my son Julian was born in 2018. I am so thankful that your Dad got to meet him and all the great memories I have of your Dad. I will miss him dearly we all loved him very much.

Frank was one of a kind and has been greatly missed since his retirement. If you ever had a bad day, you sought out Frank because he was probably having a bad day too, and he ALWAYS made you laugh. He was the greatest story teller and undisputed Chilli Cookoff Winner, even being so stingy as to never share his recipes, ha!!! His favorite stories revolved around his pride and joys, his grandchildren. You could tell, nothing gave him joy like watching them play football and spending every second he could with them. Thank you, Frank, for always being there for us and making us smile. Rest easy, friend. Love, your Lowes family.

I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I was blessed to not only work with him at Lowe's but also at Westville Correctional Center. He was a good man that loved his family. He was a prankster and always fun to be around.

May his Journey be swift in the arms of the Angels and may God Bless all of you with strength during this time of sorrow and loss.

Fly with the Angels Frank and God Bless You

I worked with Frank for many years at Lowe's. He was loved by so many of us. I was one who called him Papa Frank and often told him what a big teddy bear he was. My heart is sad and I'm sending love to his family and also my Lowe's family who loved him and will miss him.
