Condolences

  1. Frank was my best friend in high school and college, we also worked together later on. God bless Frank, we had some great times together

  2. Linda, Sarah, and Flack family: I am so sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. He was one of our very best pals when we all grew up together on Broadmoor Drive. He was always the most adventurous, enthusiastic, witty, intelligent, athletic, and handsome guy in the crowd, and we all envied him. I’ll always remember those wonderful days when the world was so much simpler and uncomplicated; and most of all how fun it was growing up with Frank. We have always loved our friendship with the Flack family, and will have you in our thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks ahead. God bless you in this difficult time.

  3. Frankie was our friend, neighbor, and protector…I looked up to him in awe. He was full of life. Our family and each and every Flack sibling were together throughout our childhood as our parents were together across the street and there were many adventures all of us enjoyed courtesy of Frankie and his joie d’ vivre. We laughed we played we explored we learned. There have been many times when I wish we could all be back in the neighborhood with him and just be kids again. He kept my sister Libby and I safe on the way home from school because he watched out for us. No one messed with us because Frankie was there. How could you argue with that legendary smile? He was Hollywood hip, smooth as glass, handsome as could be, and always smiling.

  4. I am heart-broken for the Flack family. Frank was one of my favorite customers at Furrow and McCoys. We shared many laughs whenever he came to see me. I am going to miss him! I wish I could be at the service, but I can’t leave work. 🙁
    Sincerely,

  5. I have thought of Frankie many times over the past 50 years with fond memories of growing up across the street from him and his family – who all seemed like an extension of our own family. My favorite memory of him is from when I was about eight years old. My dad had taken us downtown to the firecracker stand and I had carefully picked out a bagful of ladyfingers, sparklers and snakes. On the 4th, my brothers and I were out looking for things to blow up. I was crossing the street to the Flack’s yard when two guys on a motor scooter swooped by and grabbed my bag of firecrackers. I was devastated (and probably burst into tears) and will never forget Frankie running like the wind to catch up to the guys who stole my bag. I don’t know what happened when he confronted them way down the street, but I’m guessing they didn’t want to make Frankie Flack mad. He was a legendary figure even at a young age – with Hollywood good looks, a long and wide fun streak and quiet determination. He has been a giant hero to me my whole life – even though I haven’t seen him in 52 years. Linda and Sarah were a huge part of our early lives, too. Sarah was my first friend. We spent many a lazy, hot summer day sitting in her family’s mimosa tree, listening to the locusts and watching the world go by. Linda babysat the four kids in my family even though one of my brothers was older than she was. I asked my mom about that and she said it was to keep us from killing each other. Dr. Flack delivered me and two of my brothers, I think. I will never forget the sound of Valerie’s voice when she stood outside her front door and called Sarah at the top of her lungs. That was pretty much our boundary when we were little – we had to stay where we could hear our moms calling. Please know, Flack family, that you are loved and remembered with the utmost fondness and joy by all of the Osbornes. How blessed we were to have you just across the street.

  6. Hey guys,
