    Frank was my buddy. We became friends while attending New Britain High where we shared a study hall, and discovered that we had a common interest: fishing. Through the years, Frank and I spent time on the Salmon and Farmington Rivers and other streams we discovered throughout the state. Frank’s fishing was careful, meticulous, and accurate. It was a pleasure to watch him work a section of stream. On some days the fish didn’t cooperate, but we enjoyed the day never the less. In our early years Frank was a creative fly-tier.
    We attended UConn together, in the same fraternity, and were avid UConn fans. When I married Ruth, he was out best man, and when he married Ceil, I was his. He is missed.

    Frank was my supervisor at Quality Control for over 4 years. I thoroughly enjoyed working for him! He was a hands-off kind of boss who allowed me to do my work without constantly looking over my shoulder but was always there to offer expert guidance when needed. What I enjoyed the most though was our non-work relationship. Our golf games with Dick Coletti and Sy Adlerstein and our long conversations about the Red Sox, UConn basketball, 1950’s New Britain, politics and the world in general, are things I will always fondly remember. I always looked forward to catching up with Frank at the QC Retirees luncheons over the years whenever he was here in CT.

    Ceil – Diane and I wish to extend our sincere condolences. Frank was a friend and co-worker who will be sorely missed!

    Hi Aunt Ceil. – This is Jeff. I’m writing on behalf of myself, my mom and sis. Mother dear said I’m better at “digital communication”. :-)

    We’re very sorry for your loss. Frank is a good soul.

    You’re welcome to come down anytime. We enjoy spending time with you.

    Love, the Carolina Rowley’s
