It’s been a shocking and tear-filled couple days for all of us that knew and loved Frank LeMaster, who unexpectedly passed yesterday. Frank was like family. He had the biggest heart, the most pure and genuine soul and was the sweetest (and funniest) person you could ever know. It was a blessing to have had him as friend for these past 30 years. So many fun memories and life-changes that we’ve all been through during that time, but Frank and our “crew” have always stuck together.
That Steve, Tom and I got to spend what would end up being Frank’s last birthday with him is something we will forever be grateful for. He will be so deeply missed that it can’t even be put into words. We’re all still in shock. Although it hurts like hell to say goodbye…and especially so unexpectedly…Heaven just got even brighter.
Please send up healing prayers for his wife, Marylou, his children and his family.
I’d like to take a moment to extend my sincere condolences to the family, friends, teammates and fans of former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Frank LeMaster, who passed away earlier today. Frank was one of my very first clients many years ago and I had the opportunity to work with him on a few occasions. He was always extremely generous with his time whenever I reached out to him and helped connect me with many of his former Eagles teammates, who are still clients and friends today. Aside from the business end of things, we had many great and fun conversations over the years. I can’t thank him enough for helping me grow and become not only a better professional, but a better person. I’m so fortunate to have gotten to know him as a client and friend. RIP, Frank.
