Frank Burggraf was a pioneer in the Landscape Architecture profession and a mentor to countless Landscape Architects. Arkansas ASLA lost an ASLA Fellow, which is among the highest honor that our profession bestows on members. Frank was recognized for his contribution to our profession, our society, his leadership, and service. Frank has heavily influenced the University of Arkansas Landscape Architecture program. His contributions to the program have had a lasting impact at the University of Arkansas, even in recent changes. He brought many wonderful people to the program and was a valuable mentor for many students, professionals, and colleagues. Frank's most generous contribution was caring about others and helping them achieve their personal goals. Thank you for all you have done Frank, you will be missed. Arkansas ASLA will plant 10 trees in Franks honor.

Frank brought me down to the University of Arkansas Landscape Architecture Program for a weekend so I could talk about my background from the University of Michigan and county park planning as well as my interest in urban and small town design. It was a quick visit, but I went home to Ann Arbor with a teaching job. I give him credit for this. We worked together on information about CCC park design in Arkansas and won an honor award for our work. For many years we both taught in the Landscape Architecture Department, a place where 5 years of educating students had excellent results.

My heart is broken. Frank was a wonderful man. I enjoyed the years we played Handball together. Frank and I played numerous Handball doubles matches and won our fair share. The most memorable is when Frank and I beat Paul Haber and his partner, Paul being a Hall of Fame caliber player. I am quite sure Frank is playing Handball as we speak with Jerry and David Wall hitting kill shots with both hands.
Rest in Peace my friend.
