surrounded by his family on Aug. 24, 2011
in Panama. He was 71.
Frank had a strong love for his family

Cameron High School baseball player Austin Standridge is trying to make some noise â€” this time off the field. The Yellowjacket athlete is trying to help raise money for breast-cancer victims.
For each home run that Standridge hits this fall, money will be donated to the LeFlore County chapter of the American Cancer Society. It's his Future Farmers of America (FFA) project.
Donations may be made by either donating so much for every homer Standridge hits or a one-time monetary amount. All funds will stay in LeFlore County.
Poteau junior pitcher Brenna Vise is continuing her prowess in the pitching circle. She pitched a no-hitter as the Lady Pirates blanked the Wister Lady Wildcats 10-0 in a game called due to the run rule in the fourth inning Monday afternoon.
The Red Oak Eagles and the Wister Wildcats were to have met on Aug. 12 in Red Oak, but the game was rained out. But their paths finally crossed Saturday afternoon in the title game of the 16th annual Carl Albert Fall Baseball Classic at CASC's Ival Goodman Field.
The Eagles got past the Wildcats 11-5 to win the championship.
The Eagles (10-1) got past the Cameron Yellowjackets 5-1 Friday night at Howe's Lions Field, while the â€™Cats (8-2) run ruled Crowder 13-3 Friday afternoon at Ival Goodman Field in the other championship semifinal.
WHITESBORO â€” The Whitesboro Bulldogs baseball team did what every team which hosts a tournament wishes â€” to win their own event. The â€™Dogs did just that.
Whitesboro run ruled the Panola Bearcats 11-3 in Saturday afternoon's title game.
The Bulldogs (5-6) won their championship semifinal 8-5 over the Battiest Panthers Friday night.

Heavener 6, Sallisaw 1; Heavener 4, Locust Grove 3: At the Oktaha Tournament, the Lady Wolves (16-5) only played their final two pool play games, and did not play for what would have been third place as that game was part of this year's tournament.
Wister 10, Arkoma 0; Wister 8, Arkoma 2: In Wister, in the opener, the Lady Wildcats (6-7) took a 1-0 lead in the opening inning, then upped the lead to 4-0 after two innings.
SPIRO â€” This year, the opposing teams of Heavener and Spiro squared off in football purely on a scrimmage basis. Heavener is in Class 2A and Spiro is in 3A. Next year, they will be in the same district, and will face each other later in year when the stakes will be considerably larger.
PANAMA â€” First-Year Panama Razorbacks Football Coach Brandon Ellis saw some good things in his team's final preseason scrimmage against the Warner Eagles Friday night at George Ollie Stadium.
In fact, no more had everyone gotten settled when the Hogs made some noise offensively. Quarterback Trevor Bourne hit Isaac Burris on a 62-yard touchdown play, which proved to be the only score the Razorbacks had on the night.
