Frank Nealon, 1928-2014 - On May 26, TVFR and the greater running community lost one of their own.  Frank Nealon, 85, a loyal husband, father, grandfather, runner and ever present friend to many of us will always be remembered with reverence for his kind and giving persona and uncompromising truthful and loving character and tireless work ethic.  Please keep Frank's family and his many friends in your thoughts.
