Frank thought fondly of all his cousins but one he thought of as a brother, Tom Espinoza. Frank spent a good amount of time with Tom growing up and as an adult lived with Tom from time to time. Frank had many aunts and uncles, most are deceased.
Frank attended Cupertino High School in the 60’s and had a lot of happy memories of his friends from that period of his life.
Frank and two partners founded Qual-Tronix in 1966, as a subcontracting business to assist the Electronic Industry in Silicon Valley. Qual-Tronix received a number of ‘Supplier of Excellence’ awards from their customers. Frank and Tess worked together at Qual-Tronx for over 30 years and both retired and moved to Lake Tahoe 10 years ago from Saratoga.
Frank was my soul mate, my best friend, the love of my life. It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the passing of our beloved, wonderful man that Frank was.
