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.

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
