Frank attended Davis High School and graduated in May 1955. Frank joined the U.S. Navy, on December 5, 1955, when he was 19 years old.

After his service, he returned home and became employed at the Union Pacific Railroad. He started as a Dock Worker, then went on to do various positions in the train yard. Frank eventually retired as a Desk Clerk, after 44 years.
Frank met the love of his life, Jeanette McDonald, in 1963. They married soon after and raised their children in Bountiful, and then Woods Cross, Utah. Frank and Jeanette were later sealed in the LDS Salt Lake Temple in 1972.
Frank loved the outdoors, going to the mountains, doing corn busts and planning his annual camping party in Mueller Park Canyon.
