TASO Football and the Tyler-Lone Star Chapter has lost a good official and great guy. Frank Dunn died on the afternoon of December 10 after a lengthily battle with his health.
Frank officiated football for 40 years, starting in Lubbock while he was attending Texas Tech University and continued to call after he moved back to his hometown of Corsicana. In 1998 he transferred to the Tyler chapter where he continued to officiate as the head linesman on Gary Hayden's crew. When Gary retired, Frank became the crew chief. He retired after the 2010 season.
Monty Gearner said, "I had the opportunity to work games with Frank for 26 years. He was one of the best wing officials I've known. But more than that, Frank was just a really good guy. He will be missed by all that knew him".
