He was always a Farm Boy and with the help of his nephew Andrew Bergeson he was able to keep on farming until his death..  He raised hogs, cattle, corn, soybeans, pumpkins, sweet corn, and always had a large garden.

Frank loved horses, especially Belgian’s, and took pride in owning, taking them to parades, and having their pictures in the newspaper. 

He enjoyed playing the lottery, gambling, beer joints, flirting with girls, animals, cowboys, oysters, and Copenhagen snuff.  He will be laid to rest next to his brother, Leonard.  He will be dearly missed by many, but not all.  Rest in Peace Cowboy.
