Our deepest sympathy to Susan, Tim, Brad and the rest of Frank’s family. Frank and Susan are our closest friends. They welcomed us into their family when we first arrived in Atlanta. Together we explored the North GA and North Carolina mountains. I was fortunate to work with Frank at Turner Private Networks. Frank had a vast network of colleagues throughout CNN and he was a master at pulling together content from his global contacts to produce award winning inflight magazine shows for Delta and Continental airlines. Frank was a warm, happy and giving soul. Always ready to help. He will be missed so much. Sleep in peace my friend.

I am so incredibly saddened by the loss of such a kind and wonderful man. I worked closely with Frank for several years at the CNN Airport Network and had a great deal of respect for him professionally, and of course, I valued his friendship and insights immensely. He always spoke so fondly of his wife and sons and always with such love and admiration. It was a privilege to have worked with him and I will treasure the many memories I have of our time at the CNN Airport Network. Susan, Brad and Tim, I know how much he cared for you and I send you my deepest condolences. You will meet again, and until that day, I know he will be watching over you all. My sincerest condolences, Anna Hovind

Frank was a true gentleman in an industry where, concerning managers, they can be few and far between. I worked with Frank at the CNN Airport network for a few months, and he was a special kind of guy. Always fair, never flustered, treated all of us as colleagues. We really appreciated him. Please accept my condolences and sympathy for your loss.

I knew Frank as a teenager when he lived across the street from me, in Columbus, MS. We developed some photos together for the yearbook. We played guitar together some, while we were both learning to play. I lost touch with him after high school. A Westover surname from an email this morning, reminded me of Frank and prompted me to search for him on the net. I'm deeply saddened to learn of his passing. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Frank.
