Frank and his identical twin, Fred, were born in Abilene, TX on September 18, 1937. Frank fondly talked of his adventures with Fred growing up during those years in Paint Rock, Eden, and Menard. Frank and Fred graduated from Menard High School in 1956. Frank then attended and graduated from Texas A & M with a degree in Civil Engineering and forever remained a fanatical Aggie.
