In 1977, Frank and Cathy purchased Navarro's Jewelry Store which they owned and operated. In later years, Frank worked in the Fine Jewelry Department at Marshall Field's / Macy's in Oakbrook.

Their little dog Gracie was a constant comfort and joy to them. Frank and Cathy's faith and prayer were a very important part of their lives. It helped see them through many chapters in their lives.
