I worked with Frank at Ron Campbell's studio in the mid 1970's. He was an original. he had a sharp wit and a biting sense of humor. He was typical of those old-school animators who usually didnt have college degrees (I dont know whether Frank did or not) but were intellectuals and artists. Frank could hold his own in the company of people like Duane Crowther and Amby Paliwoda. He knew things. A conversation with Frank was well worth having. I didnt know him well, I was just a punk kid doing his first crude inbetweens on 'Inch High Private Eye' and other great classics that will live forever, but I certainly enjoyed being in the same room with him. RIP Frank.
