He attended Glenville Elementary School and graduated from Greenwich High School in 1948. Frank entered the Marine Corps in 1950 and served time overseas during the Korean War. Upon his arrival home in 1953 after the war, he learned the family trade of carpentry, working until his retirement in the late 1980's.
Frank met Leona Eleanor Leja at the local Polish Club in the early 1950's and they were married June 16, 1956. Mrs. Sandor died December 20, 2007. They raised their five children in Glenville, during which time he was a member of the Glenville Volunteer Fire Department, the 9th District Veteran's Association, and the Knights of Columbus.
