Upon graduation in 1949 he began teaching grade school at St Peter Lutheran on Houston Ave at Bingham where he was a student teacher 1947-48.
With the exception of one year as a Corporal in a US Marine tank battalion during the Korean War, Frank taught until the schools were integrated and the St Peter school closed. In 1967 Frank began a second career as an Inner City missionary running outreach and community services programs based at St Peter. His third career with the City of Houston Health Department lasted until his retirement. In retirement Frank was an active volunteer in the community and at St Peter, including teaching Sunday School, something he started as a teenager in Austin.
