    I sooo sorry to hear the news! I was hoping for the chance to work with Frank (or Ezra as he liked to be called) again. He was a kind and generous person who loved what we were doing in the drone business! He’ll be greatly missed!

  2. Judy Baker Williams says:

    Wow! I have lost one of my oldest friends, 2nd grade. So many thought we were brother an sister and we were there for each other many times growing up. We had a blast exploring the Little Rock Airport during the time we were in the Civil Air Patrol. Partners in crime, bicycling 8 miles to swim in the river with friends. Always a smile, I will miss knowing I could reach out and he would listen to my problems, making them easier to face. My brother from another mother.
