Dear Richard, I am sorry to hear that your grandfather has
died. I do not know if you have informed the editor of the Hellcat News and the unit representative of the 92nd Cavalry Recon Battalion. The editor will publish an announcement.
Typically this contains information on the date of death, is age and
the name of his wife and the names of sons and daughters and the number of grandchildren who survive.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg (Legacy member)

I am truly sorry for your loss, and I came across this posting today, while searching for Frank's contact information on the www. I met Frank during my years, in the mid 1990s, as a NYS Park Ranger at Rogers Rock campground, in Hague, NY. He was a delightful, kindhearted man, striking up conversation with me during his visits that blossomed into a friendship. We talked at length about WWII, and Frank talked proudly about his 12th Armored Division and his Hell Cats newsletter. He shared with me copies of that newsletter which he carefully archived and selected books pertaining to WWII battles he was involved in. Being a history-buff, I spent many hours during his visits at Rogers Rock over a number of years talking, but mostly listening, to Frank and his recounts. He also spoke fondly of his visits to his family in Cairo, NY and mixing travels there with camping at Rogers Rock. A couple of days ago, I saw election results on the tv news for Cairo, NY that included two candidates named Rumph. Making the connection, I decided to reach out to Tara Rumph, Town Clerk in Cairo, with a note inquiring about Frank. I found this post later, much to my sadness. Richard, your grandfather was a wonderfully kind, friendly man, humble in his service and sacrifice. As unlikely as our meeting and friendship was, being separated by two generations, I respected him beyond words. May God bless Frank, and may He bless you for your loss. Sincerely, Bill Ferguson, 904 Farm to Market Rd., Troy, NY 12180.
