Memories Timeline


  1. I am very sorry to hear about Frank's passing. He was a good man. Please accept my condolences.

  2. To the Hamtak Family,

    I am so sorry to hear the passing of Frank, he was my colleague at TUV SUD ARISE, it came as a total shock to each of us. I recently had the opportunity to meet Frank for the first time this past February in Houston, TX, we conducted a week-long visit to some of his old contacts. I can say he certainly had a nice way about him and made folks feel at ease.

    Frank was such a nice guy, he was down to earth, knowledgeable and positive, and fit in perfectly as part of our team, he also had a great sense of humor. People said if you need answers to talk with Frank, he was the go-to guy, and I can say on a few occasions I saw that in action! He will be sorely missed by the team and our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
