In Memory: Frank Wiley, 1962-2017

My friend and collaborator since 2008. We came from different worlds, brought together and bonded by our passion for the ivorybill and the swamps. I will miss him.dsc_0029dsc_0033dsc00749dsc00781img_0832img_0842imgp0385imgp0801imgp1721

  3. I only knew Frank for about a year, but I feel like I came to know him enough to say the following with confidence.

    Frank was in all respects a remarkable man. When I first met him, I was immediately struck by his powerful character and authenticity. A true outdoorsman, he would often tell me stories of his adventures in the woods and the wild experiences he had. Not only was he an expert hunter and woodsman, he had an impressive knowledge of science, and I always learned a lot through my conversations with him. His genuine character and expertise was matched only by his hospitality; he would never turn me down when I needed a place to stay and always encouraged me feel at home. I’m grateful that Eric and I were able to spend time with him like we did. We will never forget him.

    He was a great man the Alabama gang will miss you fly high my friend until we meet again. God bless your family

  5. Went on three IBWO trips with Frank. After each one, I was even more impressed with him. A true original, we will miss Frank sorely!
