He was born in Las Villas, Cuba. Frank moved to the United States and graduated High School in Miami, Fla. He became a self-taught Jeweler and a master craftsman. He owned and operated two successful jewelry stores “Jewelers Outlet” in New Orleans and Metairie, Louisiana. In 1998, Frank moved to Mississippi to enjoy country living, his passion for deep sea fishing, and fast boats. A 12 year loyal employee of C&H Pest Control in Picayune, Miss., his work, personality, and outgoing nature will be sorely missed. Yet his spirit lives on in the hearts of his family and friends.
