He was born on Monday, September 7, 1937, at home in Ross County, the son of the late Emil and Helen McNeal Everhart. Frank grew up in the farming community near Humboldt with his three brothers and four sisters.
He attended Bainbridge schools. Later he went to work on his brother Dewey's farm. He then moved to Greenfield where he became skilled as a chauffeur, cook, grounds keeper and a self-taught mechanic. As a result of his skills as a mechanic, engines and motors became his life trade. He excelled at this, working in many garages and shops in the Greenfield and surrounding areas. His hobbies were engines, tractors and later in life he had a passion for hit and miss engines. Frank had many of those engines and they were in all sizes. When he wasn't tinkering around on his engines, Frank was an avid gardener. He led a good and honest life and was a good family man. He loved his family and was a proud dad and grandpa. Later in his life, he accepted the Lord into his life, and now he waits in Heaven for them to join him.
