Frank's daughter Natalie sent this information about her Dad's life:

Frank was born in El Paso, attended Austin High School and graduated from UTEP (University of Texas at El Paso).  He and Pat married in 1961, and he was drafted for 2 years into the National Security Agency.  Their first child Natalie was born, and the family moved to Palms, California, where Frank worked at CMC, a computer start-up, and second child Frank Scott McCallick was born.  Frank then attended UCLA and earned his Masterís Degree in Computer Sciences.

The family relocated to Encino, California and the two children attended St. Cyrilís of Jerusalem School.  Frank and Pat were active in the school and parish, and Frank became an avid sailor.  The family of four spent summers at Catalina Island.  A few years after the first two children were born, Paul, the McCallick's third child, came along, and when Paul was older, Frank and his youngest boy participated together in the YMCA father and son program, Indian Guides.   Frank was a devoted dad to all his children and enjoyed family activities like bike rides, dinners together, their boat trips and camping.  He also liked to do yard work, was active in his church, and his main hobbies were tennis and hunting.

Frank was employed at Citibank in upper level management and earned a patent for the Automatic Bank Teller Machine when he adapted it to suit the blind.   Pat developed a career in teaching and daughter Natalie also pursued a career in education;  sons Frank Scott and Paul married, and eventually four grandchildren were added to the McCallick family tree.

Frank and Pat retired to Ventura where he began to play golf, continued to enjoy bike riding and cruising the coast with the family, and he coordinated the Habitat for Humanity volunteers for his new parish, Our Lady of Assumption Church.  Pat became ill with cancer, and for eleven years, Frank single-handedly cared for her until hospice was called in 3 weeks before she died on March 14, 2010.  They were married 49 years.
