Frank was retired, but spent most of his career in the construction field. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather and was an avid fisherman. He enjoyed fishing the Poudre River outside Fort Collins, Colorado and Hohnholz Lakes near Jelm, Wyoming. Frank was also a skilled craftsman and gardener, spending much of his retirement growing his beloved Mirasol chili and tending to his pickles and pumpkins for his grandchildren.
Frank was preceded in death by his grandsons Michael and Carlos Maestas.
At this time, there will be no funeral service. Frank was cremated on August 12, and entombment at the Ault Cemetery will be scheduled at a later date.
Frank was a loving husband, father and friend to many. His peaceful demeanor, creativity, and gardening talents will be missed by those who had the pleasure to spend time with this gentle soul.
