I knew Frank on a business relationship basis, but had the pleasure of talking with him many times. We would even find ourselves just calling to catch up on a semi-regular basis. I always enjoyed when I'd call the office and Frank picked up. Our condolences go out to the entire Gonzalez family and our prayers are with you.

I am saddened by the loss of Frank, and will keep him and your family in my prayers. We have bought the fish for the St. Margaret Fish Fry from Frank for 25 years. Frank really took good care of us and gave us the best service and deals. He was very instrumental in the success of the "Best Fish Fry Dinner in Town!" Frank was a good supporter of our parish, and frequently donated things. It wasn't just buying the fish, but it was the pleasant conversation and stories he always shared that made a great relationship. Frank is missed!
