Frank Piper (1934-2013)

Jodi Perselle Warman wrote to inform me that Frank died last week.

I saw him dance on Broadway in 1962 but didn't meet him till 2006 when Jodi & our mutual friend Garold Gardner drove from Las Vegas to Pahrump to have lunch with him.  all of us had known my old friend T. R. Queen. I took this picture of Frank in his living room:

the following year Frank joind Garold & my cousin Sal & I for a dip in the Tecopa hot springs. we were naked so cousin Regina was on the other side in the women's part. then we all visitd Marta Becket at her opera house before taking her out to eat. during lunch we all rememberd my friend Sheila Smith with whom Frank appeard in summer stock in the '60s.
