    I can't believe he's gone. Frank was a great guy. I honestly don't know what to say, other than I'm so sorry for his family, especially the kids. Horrible, just horrible.
    I called him last year when we were having issues keeping the site up during playoff games for instruction on resetting the server and we ended up talking hockey for and hour. He truly was a great guy, I'm going to miss talking about hockey and fishing with him.

        RIP. Wow that is very sad. I loved reading his posts and loved how he always told it like it was no matter how unpopular his opinion might be.

              this is annette/netty, Ogie AZ/Frank's girlfriend. i have loved reading the responses so quickly posted on Orange and Black for his family and myself. his passing was sudden and at a very young age of 40 -- so unexpected in fact that he was still signed on here, his facebook, etc. i would love to share all of these beautiful messages with his family, please keep posting. his love for life and for hockey has truly touched the world.

                  For a second when I saw this signature under new posts, I was hoping it was Ogie telling us it was a joke. Annette my prayers are with you and Frank's children, may God give all of you peace in this sad time.

                    My deepest condolences, Annette. I can't believe this is real. I go way back with Frank having started this site and passed it off to him the first time he took over. He was a great person and I considered him a friend even though we never had the pleasure of meeting face to face. Truly shocking. I can't imagine what you and his kids are going through.
