    Sorry to hear it. The Wheel of Life turns for all of us, and we are remembered by what we leave behind.

    Frenchy always had a good word for me, and the sight of his circus wagon was always welcome. He saw my son in law carrying a Franchi 530, and for the next ten years tried to sell me another one, all in good fun.
    Ihope he sold it.

    Godspeed, Frenchy.

    Always loved seeing Frenchy at the Iowa State Shoot for many years.

    He was always the same nice guy year after year.

    My sympathies to his family.

    Hauxfan!

    Iam deeply saddened to hear of this...

    Frenchy and his family and mine go back along way. Still remember when I was a kid at a league shoot, Frenchy and Phil were heading out to Reno with a trunk load of stuff.

    Always enjoyed seeing Frenchy at various shoots and I know he loved to see me and my family.LOL Alot of guns were sold and traded... Alot!LOL

    I will miss him....

    My condolences to all his family..

    The Wilbur Family

    I bought a lot of stuff? from Frenchy, some of it just because I liked the guy. He was one of those characters you meet in life and just remember, a super guy. My thoughts are with his family.

    My condolences to the family on behalf of all of us at White Flyer Targets. Although I was never a close friend I can always remember "Frenchy" at the shoots. He always had time to stop and talk and ask how I was doing and how was business. "Frenchy" was truly one of those "unsung" heroes out there on the circuit that truly cared about the sport and the people. His passing is a great loss not only to his immediate family and friends, but to the shooting community and fraternity. He will be missed ......

    I am very sad right now knowing that Frenchy has passed away. As a young student at Edinboro State in Penna. I linked up with Phil Frigon, Johnny Bozarth, and those other rascals from Kansas State and we shot against each other during our college years. After graduation, we shot together for many years at the Grand, Ohio, Kansas, Penna., and Iowa. What fun we had. Frenchy always kept us in line.....and guns and ammo ! I will miss him dearly and will continue to think of him often. What a great family and tribute to our clay target sport. Repectfully submitted....Sam Austin, Edinboro, Pa.

    I thought he was the best person to have conversation with early morning at Iowa State. He was always in up spirit. I am sure he will leave a very large void for those who had met him. My sincere condolence to family!
