Frank, or as my adult children still refer to him as Uncle Frank, was a dear dear close friend. It\\\'s not often work relationships turn into personal ones, but Frank long ago became part of our family and we will miss him terribly. God speed, Frank!

To the Gottlieb Family, Very sorry to read of your loss of Frank. He was a very good man and an excellent reporter, totally devoted to the truth and to making sure his listeners knew exactly whet was going on in the Pittsburgh area - and the world. Frank was also dedicated to his alma mater, Duquesne University, and always talked about Duquesne, where we both graduated from in the 60's, every time we ran into each other at the Greenfield Giant Eagle. I miss his early morning calls during the 80's and 90's when I was in office -- he always gave me a chance to comment on any issue that affected Allegheny County. Frank will be deeply missed by the countless people whose lives he touched in such a possible way. May he rest in peace.

To the Gottlieb Family: Frank was a pillar of journalism in Pittsburgh for decades. He handled a stressful job with sound judgement and good humor. He was among the first media representatives I worked with in my early corporate media relations career and was an influence on me throughout my 40+years that paralleled his career. Congenial, helpful and supportive -- that was Frank! My prayers go out to all of you.

So sad to learn of Frank’s passing. He was one of the really good guys in the radio biz. Always enjoyed talking with Frank and hearing stories from the late ‘60s on the early days of freaky free-form FM radio. Frank was one of the founding DJs of the art form at WAMO-FM, predating KQV-FM/WDVE and WYDD-FM by four to five years. A walking encyclopedia of Pittsburgh media. Frank - say hello for me to “Brother Love”. My thoughts are with Frank’s extended family… he will be remembered.
