    My thoughts and prayers are with the Connell family. I sang with Frank in the 80’s & part of the 90’s in the West Towns Barbershop Chorus, SPEBSQSA, Inc Frank was always a pleasant guy to be around. He held many positions in the Lombard Chapter. Frank had a great voice. Now he joins my Dad, Dick Zarek in Heavens Barbershop Chorus. That was an awesome time back then singing in the West Towns Chorus.
    Frank, I will miss you !
