After graduating from Somerville High School in 1949, Frank joined the Navy at age 19 and served during the Korean War on the ship The Coral Sea. After the war, he lived in New York City where he studied electronics at the RCA Institute. He eventually moved back to Somerville where he met his future wife, Mary Harrington.

Frank continued his education and graduated in 1967 from Northeastern University with a degree in electronics. After obtaining his degree, he became a teacher at Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School in Upton MA, heading up the electronics department. While there, he pioneered the robotics program which is still in existence today. He touched the lives of countless students, many of whom went on to have successful careers in the high-tech industry. After retiring from teaching, Frank reintroduced himself to the game of golf where he spent many summers at the Berlin Country Club playing in the senior league.
