I remember Frank as friendly, easy going, humerous, and an all-around good guy.

Linda and Frank were the perfect couple.  This makes me very sad.

I especially appreciated the assistance Frank rendered when I ran for DA. It was great to have the assistance of fellow Trojans, though it had been years since we had contact.Sorry to read of his passing. My condolences are extended to the family.

I'm sure sorry to hear of the passing of my friend, Frank Chaffin. He represented our class very well and he will be missed. Frank and I had the opportunity to ride motorcycles together for 45 miles a few years ago finishing our short trip with a cup of coffee in Manhattan. We shall meet again Frank.

What miserable news. I am so sorry about this, Linda. I am not clear why Frank had to wait for his surgery, and died while waiting.  I enjoyed my occasional exchange of notes with Frank these past few years, and especially the picture of him dancing down an aisle at some event. I stream WREN on my home stereo just to hear his show. Best wishes to you, Linda.

I echo Pamela Bennett's post about being easy going and generous when he saw you.
