A former Shriner, Frank was also a member of the Batesville Masonic Lodge #668, Batesville Lions Club, Batesville Kiwanis and the Batesville Friends of the Library. Gifted with a great sense of humor, Frank was quite a jokester and everybody was fair game for his humor. He enjoyed golfing; reading, especially Stephen King novels; doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles; was an avid Bengals fan as well as possessing a green thumb. He grew beautiful flower gardens and a vegetable garden that provided an abundance of produce for family and friends. Frank also enjoyed traveling, which was a benefit his job provided.

He is survived by his wife Sue; sons Jeff (Christy) Connelly of Batesville, Joseph Connelly of Kettering, Ohio, Tim (Judy) Connelly of Canaan, New Hampshire, John (Michele) Hamilton of Asheboro, North Carolina; eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

Memorials may be made to Margaret Mary Health Foundation Hospice.
