Thoughts and prayers to the family. Frank is in Heaven with my father and one of his best friends, William (Bill) Dwyer. I am sure both are playing a round of golf as we speak.

My thoughts and prayers to the Crebase family. Frank and I grew up together in Wallingford, attending the same Parochial school, and then on to Xavier. Frank always had a great sense of humor, followed by his signature laugh. Although our paths haven't crossed in years, I will miss knowing that he was around. Peace be with you my friend.

Frank lived where I did, his birthday was always a day ahead of me. I met him again in '63, as member of his OC at Xavier. Rest in peace, my friend

While Frank was at Xavier and I was at Mercy at the same time, I met him in 1975 in a West Haven apartment house next door to him. Four apartments faced an inside hallway and once the four single neighbors got to know each other, we left our doors unlocked and sometimes open. It was like being in a college dorm. We all had a lot of fun. And he regaled us with stories from his training job at McDonald’s. When we all moved on we didn’t stay in touch. My condolences to the family. Gone too early. RIP Frank.

Frank and I were classmates and teammates at Xavier High School in the 60s. Sharing those years with him allowed us to develop a bond of friendship that has spanned decades. Frank was an authentic person. He was a dedicated, committed friend. He was a complete football player and a caring, charismatic member of our greater high school community. He will be missed. A truly great loss.

I have known Frank since college. I have some wonderful memories of our many years together. He was a kind, fun-loving man who loved to sing. He did a great Dean Martin imitation! My prayers go out to his family. I will always remember Frank with fondness and love.

My life-path first crossed Frank's in September of 1963 as members of the first class admitted to Xavier High School in Middletown, Connecticut. There was one very specific feature about Frank that I respected the most: he was genuine. He never pretended to be someone else; he was Frank Crebase and very proud of that. Frank was easy to "read". What people saw was him and he never wanted to be anyone else. In addition to his genuiness, Frank was very kind. He was easy to be friends with and he gathered many during his lifetime.

I am very certain that Frank gave more in his lifetime than most people. That is what he was - a giver, not a taker.

Frank - I will so miss your Facebook comments on my page! They always made me laugh. I am so honored for the opportunity to know you and grateful for your generosity. My memories are centered around my visits to Kansas, staying at your Bed and Breakfast (The Molly Brown) and eating your Frank Dawgs! Thank you for sharing your life and humor. Godspeed my friend! I will see you on the flip side!

What can I say...Frank was unique in every way. Our friendship evolved from an encounter at McDonald's in Independence,KS. We became good friends because we both stood up for our beliefs. We respected each other. You will be greatly missed and there is now a void on the planet. God Speed, my friend.

Frank was always very generous in supporting Independence Middle School while I was Assistant Principal there. He had a heart for teachers and kids. Rest in peace, Frank!

My heart breaks and I’m going to miss Frank so very much! We were college buddies, best friends, and visited him wherever he was! I still have, and proudly wear, my Frankie’s Dawgs shirt he gave me when in Kansas! I cherish all pictures we took with him with all of his animals. He would always call me by my last name, Hansen, and he will always have that special place in my heart! Fly high Crebase, go find Paulie, as you called him, and share stories! See you again one day! Love you always and forever!

Our Hearts and prayers are with the Crebase/Bisson Families. Memories Memories so many fun Memories, from the first day I met Frank at Whalley Ave. McDonalds back in the late 70's When he pretended to be the "Hulk" tearing off the walk in refrigerator door thru the years catching up at the annual Crebase/Bisson cookouts. He always made us laugh with his stories. He will surely be missed. RIP Frank
