Frank and Darlene started “Voses Secondhand and Antiques Store” in Cohasset in 1966. Some say this put Cohasset on the map. Frank loved buying old furniture and refinishing it. People came from far and wide to find these treasures. During this time they bought many old cars and trucks. Mostly he loved Dodges and Desotos. Another favorite thing to do was hunt. He would get a buck every year in his younger days.
He had many animals over the years including cattle, horses, goats, pigs, and varieties of birds from Emus, chickens, peacocks, pigeons, and pheasants from around the world. Always had a dog named “Buster”. Frank loved life and family, especially if they like to play cards, which was one of his favorite things to do. He always loved a good piece of cake. Frank read his Bible daily. He loved to share what he learned with others, even doing this up to a couple days before he passed.
