In Memory of Frank Maguire
: Last time I was with Frank, we had lunch at one of his favorite places. I was there to ask if he would consider joining CREDAA as an adivsory member for business related issues. Frank was so gracious as he accepted and then went on to tell me a few great jokes and a story about one of his earliest interviews. Frank will be missed as he was taken too soon. Frank was so giving as he showed up for our Feed333.org Charity in South Central Los Angeles to help with our efforts to help feed needy working families over the holidays.
Frank passed away yesterday while on the road for a speaking engagement. Frank was set to do an interview next month for CREDAA. I am thankful for the time we had together as he was a wonderful man and was becoming a fond friend. He is survived by his incredible wife Carmel, who we give our deepest condolences.
Founding member and former VP of FedEx Worldwide; former head of programming for ABC Radio Networks; communications consultant to Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson; right hand man to KFC founder and pop-culture icon Colonel Harlan Sanders…Frank embodies the experience that grows from real life experiences.
He has argued philosophy (yes, philosophy) with Marilyn Monroe. Discussed batting averages with Joe DiMaggio. Jammed with B.B. King, Mel Torme, Joe Williams and Ella Fitzgerald. He took a chance on a new kid named Ted Koppel when his own boss told him to fire the guy. He has witnessed the rise (and fall) of empires. He has soared with the greatest eagles of corporate culture and yes, Frank Maguire has walked with giants.JW NajarianCREDAACREPIG
