I’m saddened to say that Frank Studenski, avid USS Boston CA-69 savant, writer of the incredible WAR DIARY, master model-maker, great story-teller, beloved and invaluable member of the USS Boston Shipmates, lost his battle with cancer this past Saturday (March 8.) Frank was three days shy of his 90th birthday. He died shortly after being released from the hospital at the home of his son, Frank Jr.
As of this writing, no obituary has yet been posted.
I posted a story about Frank on June 15, 2013, after meeting with and interviewing him during the writing of Baked Beans Vol. 3. His participation in the book was critical and his stories amazing.
Glad I had the chance to meet you, Frank. Rest in Peace.
