A rough start
Frank was born out of wedlock durring the depression. His real father was married to another woman, so his uncle took the claim of fathering him. At the age of 5 Frank's mother abandoned him. Only once did Frank speak of standing in the middle of a country dirt road crying as his mother walked away. She left him in the custody of a local woman who took in unwanted boys to work on her farm. Frank said he could not remember a day going by that he wasn't beaten in some way or another.
