Frank L. Hussey, Monday, July 31, 2017.  Born in Amanda, Ohio on October 20, 1934, to Lloyd and Sylvia Moore. 

He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 57 years Carol Anna Helm Hussey, his sister Gloria (Emil) Clendenen, brother Ronald (Jane) Hussey, brother-in-law Rohe (Alice) Helm.

Frank graduated from Amanda High School in 1952, and earned his BA from Capital University and his MA from The Ohio State University.  Frank was a Professor of Music at Capital University from 1957-1996.   He was a church organist for much of his life, playing at Indianola Presbyterian Church, Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church, and University Baptist Church. 

He was a lifelong pianist, with a career that ranged from performing in dance halls as a teenager to concert halls as an adult.  Frank found great pleasure in performing and teaching music.   To him, music was an expression of his deep faith.
