Frank Neff was born along the Italian/Swiss border and spent 20 years living in France. He said those were the happiest years of his life because he couldn't drink the water and had to drink wine. He was married and had a daughter. When he decided to come to the "new country" they decided not to come with him.
Frank bought a piece of property on Grangemont Rd. from Potlatch and lived there until 1952 or 1953 when he sold it to Alph Johnson. Phil Johnston now lives on the property.
He is described as a man who would give you the shirt off his back or hate you with a passion.
