He worked at his father’s tool business, RPM Tool, WR Grainger, and the Watertown Mall in the Boston area, as well as Flir Systems, Inc., in Nashua, New Hampshire, before moving to Arizona.

Franz moved to Golden Valley in May of 2014 with his wife and daughter and started his own machinist tool resale business as an eBay Powerseller.

He also continued to play guitar and drums in small Kingman venues and for local talents Jeff Diamond, Elvis’ Shadow and DJ Silver.

He was widely known in the Golden Valley community for his kindness, cheerfulness, compassion and unconditional support for friends and neighbors in need.
