Hello everyone, Frank left the planet last night around midnight.
Where ever he is I am sure he is laying down tracks. It was an honor to be his wife, I don't know how I will go forward from here.

Wow. That's terrible news. So sorry for your loss and ours, Pam. Thank you for letting us know. Frank was a great guy, and a tremendous asset to our little virtual community.

Perhaps now he has found Peace. I pray his friends and family do too. RIP, Frank. "Keep On trackin." \:\(

We are here for you. We will go forward together.

Frank was our friend and we will honor him by assisting you in any meager way we can.

Stevie Wonder's words apply to Frank Griffith:

"As today I know I'm living but tomorrow could make me the past but that I mustn't fear
For I know deep in my mind the love of me I've left behind
Cause I'll be loving you always"

Frank may have left the planet, but not the Planet where he is immortal.

FRANK GRIFFITH LIVES!

Thank you Pam,

My deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family.


What a great, honorable, and naturally helpful man.


His incredible dedication to solving fellow Planeteer's VS-2480 problems is legendary here.


It certainly was easy to see, and be inspired by his amazing capacity to care about other people... And I'm sure we only saw the tip of that iceberg.


Thank you Frank!

So very sorry to hear such sad news, Pam. Thank you for letting everyone here know about it.
My condolences to you and your family.

Frank was a great help to so many here, it seems (I didn't really know him much, myself) - it's obvious that his presence here was greatly appreciated.

Take heart in knowing how much of a good influence he was here.

I am so terribly sorry to hear this news. Frank was such a wonderful part of our little community - always a kind and helpful word, and always positive, giving positive energy to us here.

It was our honor knowing him.

Truly sorry to hear about your loss. I think you can tell he was highly respected around here. This is just so sad. I gleaned quite of bit of awesome info from him from time to time just reading his posts, and yes, always the straight-up gentleman dealing with anyone and everyone here. Sorry I did not talk to him more when I was on here. Beams to you and to everyone in your family.

I am really sorry and saddened to hear of Frank's passing.

Frank was an encyclopedia of knowledge on VS-2480's and the kind of guy who would always try to help someone any way he could. I am sure there are many like myself that owe his a debt of gratitude for all of his help. I had dealings and conversations with him over the years and he ALWAYS helped me get the answers I sought.

To say he will be sorely missed is a huge understatement.
My deepest condolences to you Pam, and all of his family and friends.

May you rest in peace, Frank, and know that you will not be forgotten.

No, no, no.

I just don't know what to say.

No one on the planet helped me as much as Frank. When others had had their fill of my frustrations, Frank would often I.M. me and encourage me to go on.

Frank stands at the pinnacle of what this website was designed to be. True help and assistance for those of us who couldn't quite 'get it', with an emphasis on compassion and friendliness.

The planet will never be the same.

Frank joined the planet March 9, 2005.

Total posts;
12,362

Most of his posts ended with the encouraging words
"Hope this helps"

Rest in peace my friend and thank you for everything you did for me.

My deepest condolences to Frank's family and his virtual family here at the planet.

Jon

Sorry to hear this Pam. Frank was a valuable part of the vs community. Thank you for posting this update. Most of us come from a life before online social interaction. I know that I'm still getting used to losing people that I've known for years online. Sometimes there is a goodbye and sometimes people just quit posting.

I checked on frank months back and he was still hanging in there. I know what he was going through wax probably most painful and now he is at peace

I just thought anyone reading and responding might want to know this:

Although Flat is THE person to save and keep VSP alive (as always, thank you Flatcat), Frank was huge in the initial efforts to keep it afloat.

I'll always be indebted to him for his efforts.

I hadn't seen him post in a few days and was thinking about him wondering if he was ok.
sigh.......

I will miss him!

I know he has a lot of recordings and archives of his music on the 2480 if you ever need help trying to pull those together and make a anthology of his music I would like to help. I know he loved music and recording it would be a cool thing to do.

pam,
frank was great. he affected a lot of people that you may not know about, and who probably do not know you, but indirectly, a lot of those folks wish you well, if only on frank's behalf,
myself included.

he would surely want you to carry on,
so just remember the good stuff,
and allow yourself the time to grieve, as we all do when we lose someone close, but never despair.
RIP FG

What a great guy, always went out of his way to help everyone here. I could imagine he was even more kindhearted with the people around him. Very sorry for your loss. RIP Frank.

The 2480 Forum is a great place to honor and remember him.

BEAMS to you and your family as you go through this your saddest times. May you be bolstered in the knowledge that Frank was respected and admired here at the Planet, a place we all take very seriously. Sincere and heartfelt condolences from here.

I knew this was coming, but when is one ever really ready for it?VS Planet has lost a HUGE resource. I still consider myself a newbie. Frank always had a response to my clueless attempts to operate what was my "new" VS-1680.
He never, ever, answered my questions in a way that made me feel even more silly than I felt...trying to get a grasp on the VS-1680. Then I found out about all the work he put into the BrownBag guide. Well, I HAD to buy a VS-2480 then!! And Frank helped demystify that machine too.
I'm glad I could be of some help to Frank; distributing his guide on VS-Planet. It was my small way of trying to say "Thanks"...for assembling a guide that has helped me and countless other users of the Roland VS-2480.
Please accept my condolences Pam.
And Frank: Keep on Rockin', you won't be forgotten.

I'm happy about three things, Pam:

That all of us here got to tell Frank directly how much he meant to us based on each of our individual experiences with him.

That he's no longer suffering, but now comfortably commandeering recording operations in a different forum than this one.

And that he always had you near him during the transition... for which we all thank you deeply.

Sincere condolences to you, the family and all his other friends.

/L

P.S. I also support the recommendation made in Frank's honor.

Pam, I'm going to send you a Private Message that should show up in Frank's email account (the one that he used for The Planet).

I want to send a donation in Frank's memory. This idea came from a very classy guy here named Starliner, so I'm hoping that you see more donations soon.

Pam,
So saddened to learn of Frank's passing just now. No doubt you've done a lot of grieving along the way as his health declined. I wish you peace in the days which follow this big change in your life.

I want you to know that Frank's work lives on in the music which is created here! His sage technical advice and steady demeanor made a big impact on me both musically and personally as I was learning the ropes. I will think of him frequently and warmly.

Sincerely,

D Cozzens

So sorry to hear about Frank. He helped me so much over the last few years and I feel so bad that there was nothing that I could do to repay him. No matter how big of a bone-head I was, he would take the time and walk me through things so that I would understand. When I saw the post, it was as if a huge part of my insides had been ripped away leaving nothing more than a large hollow feeling. I wish there was something that I could do to help you through this terrible time. I will guarantee you one thing for sure. Frank helped so many people here that we will carry and hold his name high in this group. The part of Frank that went into this group shall never fade and he will live on in this forum.

I was very saddened by the news of Franks passing. I rarely post here but still visit once or twice a month to check in and one thing I recognized very early on, was that Frank never hesitated to share his knowledge and give his time unconditionally to all here. Only special people do that. Deepest condolences to you Pam and your family.

So sorry to hear this. Frank was a good guy. He and I had a very good relationship. I never had a single problem with him. He was dedicated to the VS2480 forum and helping others.

He will be sorely missed. \:\(

I haven't logged in to the site in a few months.
I just saw this. \:\(

Last PM'ed with Frank in July of 2016.
Never met him in "real life", but he helped me immensely with my setup and always had the answers for my questions.

He didn't have to help anybody, but he seemed to truly enjoy it.

I wish I could have had a beer with him or something...but I'll never forget him. Every time I turn on my VS2480

I visit this site so rarely... I am so very sorry to hear of Franks passing, I did not know him well but he always treated me with respect. I am a real novice with the 2480 but Frank was always willing to help, he even took the time to email me info after I contacted him not knowing he was on vacation and took time to answer my question. He will be greatly missed......... with respect and admiration, Fred Cox.

So sorry Frank passed. He helped me a lot in the early days. He had quite a dedication to this board, and to helping all the rest of us during our learning years. He was definitely the master guru of the VS-2480. He left us with a great body of work.

Hi Planeteers, been many years !.

Way back then when I got started on the VS2000, Frank actually mailed me something to help me along, not sure what it was, perhaps drivers, samples ?. NO CLUE.

I thank him so much and even tried to pay him for his actions, but he refused payment (WOW), what a human. I'm sorry if I inconvenienced any here, but I like to let you all know what he did for me. (FRANK YOU ARE MISSED BUD)
