Shortly after his birth the family moved to Salt Lake City, UT, a small area referred to as Sweedtown where he went to grade school. Making many friends, they formed a gang called “Sweedtown Hoods”.

Marrying in 1991 they had many laughs together when attempting to teach each other their native language. As well, Frank tried to convince Cora camping and hunting was fun. She remained unconvinced.
