He was a Steelers though and though! Lost a couple of bets browns vs Steelers games, but Frank was always cool. And Frank’s could dress, always had on very stylish shoes was always dressed “Clean” at work,but he would never tell me, where his gets his shoes! I was very shocked when I heard the news. Frank was a cool dude. I will miss him!

  6. I had the privilege of working with Frank at COVA. Frank’s smile could light up a room! He was a sharp dressed man, a kind man and a good family man. He loved to talk about his kids and his wife. He was so proud.
    I’m fortunate to have known Frank King.
    My condolences to you, his family. His beautiful memory will live on through you.

  7. Dear King family, I am truly saddened to hear your precious Frank left you all way too soon. I had the pleasure of working with him at COVA. He was a funny guy who was always ready with a joke or to talk about the Steelers. He grilled a pretty mean hot dog at our cookouts, too. Frank went above and beyond with his clients and his dedication to helping others was evident. My condolences to your family.
