    I just found out about Frank"s passing. What an engineer and a wonderful man! He never met anyone he wouldn't help solve any problem he could. He will always be remembered by those whose lives he blessed. My condolence to his family and friends.

    I just learned of Frank’s death. I knew him for many years at IBM while working on the Space Shuttle project. To many, Frank was known as “Mr. FEID”. His expertise in troubleshooting problems in a very complicated piece of hardware saved us many hours of downtime. I remember him sitting at his desk in a suit and tie pouring over large computer listings.

    My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).

    Frank was like an adopted Father to me. He always had an eye and an ear in my direction whilst growing up with his children in Pearland Texas. I will always remember our lunches together while Sue was in the hospital. You knew it was me by the sound my loafers made when I walked down that long hall. You are a true Hero! I will always love you and I will see you again. Jean
