MASSEY. Frank W., age 78, of Dayton, OH, formerly of Greenfield, OH, passed away on Sunday, July 30, 2023. Frank was born on July 13, 1945, in Greenfield, to the late Francis "Oscar" and Nona (nee McComas) Massey. Frank graduated from McClain High School class of 1965 and served in the US Army. In Greenfield he was introduced to Charlene Drummond, later marrying in August of 1968. Soon after Frank and Charlene moved to the Dayton area where Frank worked for DESI for several years.
