Karen, I’m so sorry you’ve lost your beloved husband. You two raised a beautiful family. I could tell how much you cared for Frank when we’d visit at the office. He obviously led a full and happy life. Fondly, Patti

Dear Karen & Jess, We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear Frank, but joyous that he was willing to share his time and talents with us for over 50 years. The Phrozen Phantom photo and plaque hanging on our wall in the museum says it all....his dedication to FFI was unbelievable. Even in his final days, he wanted to see an FFI club be established in Sheridan and he certainly got his wish. Our heart-felt gratitude and sympathy goes out to you and your family. From all of us at Fly Fishers International

Dear Karen, Dear Tenly, Dear Jess Thank you so much for sharing Frank with the rest of us, this was a treasured gift we have received for so many years. And thinking about what we actually have is taking away all - well most - of the somber thoughts of what we may have lost. I feel very privileged for having had the opportunity to spend so much time of my life with Frank / your dad and the memories as well as lessons learned I have from that time are uncountable. It's not just fishing, every aspect of life was touched, it's about the stories, the man and friend Frank Johnson. The bamboo rod Frank gave me in October is hanging on the wall in my home office, but is not retired yet and every time I will cast a line in the years to come, Frank will be standing on my side, probably commenting on my back cast (too much wrist) or my sloppy presentation and grinning happily when I hook one, maybe grumbling something like “no you didn’t” in his bass voice. And then maybe something like “let’s go somewhere else, it’s too easy here”, We, Jaci and I are sad here in Switzerland, we have a candle burning, and trust he left in peace and things are better for Frank now. Bruce Springsteen once said on the eulogy for his great friend Clarence Clemons: “Clarence doesn’t leave the E Street Band when he dies. He leaves when we die” I feel the same about Frank. All my Best Wishes to All of You Fredi
