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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
