A gift from an anonymous admirer nearly 30 years ago inspired a well-known Tremonton resident to pass on a similar gift to his own family. The original gift was a sign with his last name on it, a reminder of his good name.
Gail Welling brought the gift to Jack Fronk, well-known Tremonton business owner, and told him “Don’t ask me who it’s from, because I can’t tell you,” Fronk recalled. “It’s from someone who thinks a lot of you. They aren’t from Tremonton.”
The present was a large wooden sign that bore Fronk’s last name. It was so treasured, it has hung on the front of his house ever since. In fact, Fronk was so inspired by the sign that he has since learned how to make them and given away approximately 20 hand-chiseled, signs since receiving this offering. At first, they were for family and then it expanded to friends who asked Fronk to make them one.
