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 Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
