Frank was a WWII Army Veteran enlisting during May, 1942. He was member of General George Armstrong Custer’s legendary 7th Cavalry. Sgt. Cummings was an assault team leader and served gallantly in the Admiralty, Lete-Samar and Luzon campaigns. His heroism earned him the Silver Star, Bronze Star and three Purple Heart medals.To sum Frank up in one word, it would be character. His own welfare was never a concern. Everything Frank did was in service to someone else, whether it was his country, his family or his city. Frank was a delight to be around. People gravitated towards him not only because of his sense of humor, but because he truly made the world a better place. Memorial Mass 2:00 P.M.
