Survived by his wife of 34 years and best friend, Rilla (Bitsy) Betts; son, Jason (Michele) Counter, of Cary, NC; granddaughters, Anna, Katie and Caroline Counter, also of Cary, NC.
His granddaughters were his pride and joy. Poppa Frank loved to buy them ice cream, take them to see fireworks, and teach them how to use a squirt gun.
Frank was a long time employee at WSMV-TV and Opryland Productions. He was a Mason and a Shriner. His faith in the Lord was deep and his friends were many.
