In 1959, Frank married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Joan Hepworth Roybal.  They became the proud parents of three sons, Scott, Chris, and David.  Frank worked 14 years in the insurance business during the latter portion of which he decided to attend college for the first time.  While working full-time and raising a family, Frank graduated from the University of Utah in 1972 with honors, magna cum laude, in Speech Communications.  He also graduated from the University of Utah’s law school in 1976.  He spent two years as an Assistant City Attorney with the City of Bountiful and later opened his own sole practice law firm in 1981 which spanned more than 40 years where he practiced a wide array of law including civil and criminal defense litigation and trial work, personal injury, trusts, domestic relations, and corporate, among others.  He also was a College of Business Instructor at the U of U for seven years.
