Fran was a fellow Master Gardener. He was a true gentleman who graciously shared his vast knowledge of horticulture with others. I enjoyed his kindly sense of humor and manner of teaching so many aspects of his gardening expertise.

We are sorry for your loss. Fran was a great influence to us when we set up our flower stand near him at the Hamburg Farmers Market. In his kindly way, he advised and encouraged us to try new ways and avoid pitfalls. We cherished a pair of white gloxinnia in our livingroom window, that he started from seed eighteen years ago. We will miss his friendship and generosity.
I met Fran in the Master Gardener program many years ago. I remember one time going to his house to pick something up and he showed me all the flats of seedlings growing in the basement. He was one of my go to MG’s for soil pH clinics. It was a pleasure to know him and he will be missed. My deepest condolences to the family.
