Celebrating the life of Frank Roy Echevarria
Thank you for signing Frank Roy Echevarria's Guestbook
Our condolences to Frank's children, siblings, fiancée, and extended family members. Frank meant a lot to our family. We could always count on Frank when an emergency arose. We are forever indebted to him for all the times he came to our aide. He was a fine man, a brother to our son, a respected paramedic, a hero, and a wonderful mentor to many. The huge number of people that mourn his death is a testimony to just how many lives he has touched over the years. Our son Ronnie is devastated by the passing of his best friend. Frank and Ronnie were like Frick and Frack or the Dynamic Duo. Although gone from this Earth too soon, I know Frank will continue to watch over his family and his friend. To Frank, know that you will be greatly missed, and always remembered.

Just seen you a couple of weeks ago maybe longer you hollered out "I know you and I was like are you sure the look on your face was like do I know her we both started laughing he's always joking so I thought I would mess with him a little. Of course he called me crazy like always he started telling me how he remembered Monie and me always together (when I worked at CFV) he would tell me y'all got something going all the time of course I had to admit those were the good ole days. Frank you're one unforgettable guy who will truly be missed. Prayers are with your family and all who knew Frank. So it's never good bye but I'll see you later spread your wings and fly 🦅🙏🏼
