He lives in Berlin Township with his wife Mary Jane and has 4 adult children.   Frank farms 1300 acres of corn, soybeans, and wheat in Erie and Huron County.  He has been a cooperator with the District since the 1980’s and has implemented several conservation projects on his farm including a manure storage pond, Water and Sediment Control Basin (WASCoB), grassed waterways, subsurface tile systems, cover crops, and he utilizes no-till planting in his operation. Growing up on Old Woman Creek, Frank has an appreciation for this resource and wants to see the local stream quality improve and remain healthy.
