I am sorry to learn of Franks passing. I attended architectural classes with Frank at New York Institute of Technology. We would meet for breakfast almost every day we had classes, he had a great sense of humor. Being Greek Frank introduced me to Pete"s Tavern and Phil Koutsis the owner in his home town of Broxville. We spent many hours playing hangman with Phil. I missed him when he left to work For Mallory Battery. Over the years I have thought of Frank often and saddened to learn of his passing

Much like the rest of my family, I have many fond memories of Frank, or "socko buddy, ol' pal" as I used to call him. He was a great man, and an awesome friend to our family, and especially to my father, Jim Graham. Frank had a wonderful and unique sense of humor, a generous heart, and great taste in music. All of these things Socko shared with my father, are perhaps the reason why they were friends for so many years, and have become legacies left to all of the Graham children. I remember for my birthday (maybe my 10th, or 11th) Frank bought me a CSNY tape. I had no idea who they were, but like much of the music I experienced through my father, it had an impact, one that continues to this day. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family, as I know Socko will surely be missed.

I first met Frank at El Pomar apartment complex in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1972-73. I believe my soon to be husband (Jimmy, as few called him, but Frank did) and I met Frank and Lyndell at the pool. We all became fast friends, as the men both loved golfing and we were all northern transplants, looking for friends our own age. Frank and Jim enjoyed many rounds of golf and, even after we married and moved to Jacksonville, Jim referred to Frank as his golf partner. We kept in touch over the years—mostly because of Frank’s persistence. But we always enjoyed our time together and each family made several trips to see the other. Those visits and phone calls were always filled with laughter and love, and Frank remained a true friend even after Jim died. On a recent conversation Frank got on speaker phone to relay two famous “Jimmy” stories to my children. They were so happy to hear him reminisce so lovingly about their father, who passed in 2005. We miss you already Paco (the nickname Jim gave him). Much love to all the family, hugs from all the Graham’s. We love you.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your husband, father, grandfather, Uncle, cousin and friend. When you see someone live such a long and fulfilling life, one may wonder why man has to die at all. But be assured, God promises Us in the Bible at Revelation 21:4, that very soon he will do away with death and sickness from the Earth forever, and then he will resurrect Frank to perfect life here on Earth, surrounded by family and friends, which has always been God's purpose for mankind and for the Earth.

Frank (and Lyndell) have always been so dear to my family. Frank and my father, Jim Graham, were friends for many years and shared the love of many things: music, golf, laughter....and Frank had an unmatched sense of humor and the ability to always fill a room with smiles. When my father passed, Frank reached out to my family to send condolences but also to share stories and fond memories about my dad with us children. It meant so much to all of us and is just one of a million examples I could list of how kind, considerate, and thoughtful he was. He will truly be missed by many. Sending my love, thoughts and prayers to his family.

I am beyond devastated over Frank’s death. He was a loving,encouraging, funny and positive father figure to me. My heart breaks when I think about calling his house and not hearing him answer and say, “hey Julie girl”. I will forever keep him close to my heart. God bless his family.
Jimmy Nolan left a message on August 29, 2018:
I was very sad to learn about Frank's passing. He was a great guy and I always enjoyed chatting with him when he stopped by the office. He was a fine Irish storyteller and I will miss his visits. Many of his tales involved his family that he obviously cherished and loved very much. He was so proud of his children and grandchildren. I'm sure Heaven became much more lively place upon Franks arrival. My God bless him and his family in this difficult time.
