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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
