Frank was born on December 14, 1938 to Howard Lewis and Frances Harris. Frank was raised by step-parents Louise Bryant and "Blackie" Allen Bryant in the Indianapolis, IN area. Frank's step-father "Blackie" was an Indy Car racer and Frank grew up around the race car garage and track. Frank eventually moved to Oklahoma where he met his sweetheart Nellie Mae Hand, and they were married on March 20, 1963 in Tulsa. Frank worked at Pioneer liquor and as a heavy equipment operator for Evans & Associates over the years. Frank was a loving father and husband for his family, working hard to provide for them. Even though he was known for being stubborn and hard headed, he loved nothing more than spending time with his family. When he wasn't working, Frank loved being outside fishing, hunting or working on his tiny cabin. He never outgrew his childhood love of car racing and was a big NASCAR fan.
Survivors include his children: Larry Lewis and wife Janet of Ponca City, Natalie Suggs and husband Shane of Kaw City, and Angela Adkins and husband Gary of Tyler, TX, step-mother Louise Bryant of Indianapolis, half-brother Robert Lewis of Indianapolis, grandchildren: Amanda Boone of Ponca City, Nicole Boone of Ponca City, Natasha Suggs of Kaw City, Daniel Suggs of Kaw City, Ryker Suggs of Kaw City, Bradley Adkins of Ponca City, Timothy Adkins of Tyler, TX, and Hope Adkins of Tyler TX; great grandchildren: Bria Boone, Zachary Boone, Corbin Boone, Dalton Adkins, and Paisley Goddard. Frank was preceded in death by his beloved wife Nellie, and his step-father Allen "Blackie" Bryant.
