From the Leon Frankamp Family:
As some of you may already know, our dad, Leon went home to be with Jesus early Wednesday morning. After a courageous battle with cancer, our Savior has called him home. He passed peacefully in his sleep, at home, surrounded by family, holding the hand of his true love and our dear mom, Ramona. While our hearts are heavy and we miss him dearly already, we find so much peace knowing he is now in his eternal home.
Memorial services for this extraordinary man are as follows:
Tuesday June 11that 1:00 pm
Magnolia Park United Methodist Church
2828 W. Magnolia Blvd.
Burbank, CA 91505
Gathering in the Fellowship Hall will be held directly after.
There will also be a celebration of his life in Pine Mountain Club later in June. This will be held at one of his favorite places in the world, PMC Golf Course. Further details to come.
So many of you have already written such kind messages and we are so grateful for all the love received. Our dad was certainly a blessing to many, as he felt so blessed by you all, too. He will be dearly missed and loved forever.
All our love,
The Frankamp Family

When you look at a photo of a person, what does the photo say to you about the image? Does the photo show a moment of the person in time? Does the photo capture the personality of the person? Does the photo and composition move you to an emotional feeling? Well, this photo does it all for me.
Today, Mr. Leon Frankamp, my high school teacher, my photo mentor, and my friend, passed away. We called him Mr. Fran because he was the teacher that connected with his students (Burbank High School). He introduced my generation to the value of a photograph, an artistic expression of the person that sets the F stop, focuses the lens, and clicks the button. He always asked us to think about the composition that shares the moment. (Rubin Rodriguez)
