He served on the Clinton School Board for two terms, Federal Land Bank Board, as well as the Elim Church Board. He served as a Big Stone County Commissioner for ten years where he served on the Odessa Fire Board, Clinton Good Samaritan Board and Development Board in Clinton. Frank was very conservative and non-wasteful, but very generous with his time and his family. He enjoyed playing Bridge and other card games, watching Minnesota Twins baseball as well as Clinton area sports. In his early years he enjoyed fishing and trapping as a part-time job during the winters. Frank enjoyed giving free haircuts in the area. Frank is survived by three sons: John (Candy) of Sauk Centre, MN; William "Bill" of Clinton, MN; Thomas (Sheila) of Gallatin, TN; ten grandchildren;15 great-grandchildren; one brother Iver (Leota) of Clinton, MN; and his son-in-law, John VanLith of Milbank, SD.
