Dear Jim, Jerry, Vicki, and Lori, Franny will be very much missed. Know he is in a better place with the rest of our missed loved ones. My favorite memories with Fanny included camping at the Apple River and having beers in the garage. Franny always made you laugh and was concerned about how life was going. Take care. You are all in my prayers. Judi

To my cousins I want you to know I'm thinking about you all with the loss of your dad. Uncle Frannie was my God Father who I thought a lot of. Shirley and I stoped in to see your dad was late this fall and we had such a good visit with him and his dog and when we said our goodbye that day we gave each other a hug and he even gave me alittle kiss on my cheek I will always remember. I'm sure they are all having a good old family get together with their parents and all the brothers and sister together. I know when I will drive by your house I will always think of uncle Frannie and aunt Tuty. Hugs to you all love Sharon

So sorry to hear of your loss of Fran. I delivered meals on wheels to Fran when he was getting on with some health issues the last few years. Always pleasant and appreciative with a hunting story or two. I'm sure Harley is waiting for him with a fishing rod or shotgun at the gate.

I was sad to read about Fran's passing. I grew up with him working at the VFW with my dad Babe, and Barney Hunt. Lots of memories of those days I'll never forget. My thoughts are with his family.

Dear Pettipiece Family, You have our deepest condolences in the loss of Franny! What a great individual. I personally got to know Fran through a game we both enjoyed, pool. We played on the same team for a couple of years and I had the privilege of competing in tournaments with him on my side. I enjoyed his way with people and his heart of gold, not to mention his great sense of humor. He lived a good life! The last time I saw him, was when he was sitting in his lawn chair at the house and we exchanged friendly waves as I drove by. Rest in Peace my friend! Respectfully, Rick & Mary Tonjum

Oh my gosh!!! I could go on for pages. Vicki and I were best friends in high school, and all the summer nights I spent staying over night. We'd sleep in the camper in the driveway and sneak out. Frannie was always a character, very, loving, and accepting. Every time I go by the house I think of Frannie sitting in the driveway with his dog. He loved his hunting and fishing. He took Vicki and Me to Mil Lacs to fish, it was a great time. I loved Frannie and Tooty, they were like second parents to me. My sympathy and prayers to the entire family, who I know each and every one like a brother or sister. A great guy will be missed.
