I think I new Frank as well as anyone. I spent many hours with him on golf in the 11 years I was coordinating golf for CBS. We had many private talks, one day flying from Atlanta to LA he had the seat next to me in first class. We sat and talked about many things that day. It made the 4 hours flight go very fast. He was one of a kind. He was always extremely good to me. I cannot remember ever having harsh words between us. You meet many people in the course of your life, but you only meet one Frank Chirkinian. I am much richer for have met him, worked with him, and be able to call him my friend. He is one person that I will never forget.
Rest in peace Frank.
