“The world was his oyster.”

Everyday Frank tackled life with vigor and enthusiasm. He enjoyed making other people happy and always wore a smile on his face. The oldest of six children, he is survived by his brothers Paul and John, sisters Lucie and Marie, his wife of 55 years Lucy Jo Jackson de Monchaux, his daughters Wendy de Monchaux and Leslie Rinehart and his six grandchildren Sarah, Kevin, Rachel, Julia, David and Evan. His sister Yvonne preceded him in death. He enjoyed his career in sales management in the computer industry and he loved horses, sports cars, sailing, singing, theater, concerts, skiing, and flying airplanes. Everyone was always glad to see Frank. Memorial service is on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 1:00 pm at United Church of Chapel Hill, 1321 MLK Jr. Blvd.
