He was 71.

Kumor, who owned Erwin’s Jewelry in Old Towne Bellevue, was beloved in the community, and residents lined up to watch his funeral procession, the World-Herald reports.

“Frank is a true icon in Bellevue, a supporter of everything, be it schools or sports or the Chamber of Commerce,” Kevin Hensel, CEO of the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce, was quoted saying.

“It’s hard to believe he’s not with us.”

Kumor was active in numerous civic organizations, including the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, the Olde Towne Task Force and the Olde Town Merchants’ Association, according to his obituary. He was a U.S. Air Force veteran.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
