Frank Crownover is retired after working full time as a pharmacist for 38 years, mostly in a hospital setting. In his spare time he likes to barbecue and bake bread. He grew up in Missouri as an off-and-on mainline protestant, becoming much more involved in church as a young adult. However, he never fully accepted the mythology behind Christianity and has identified as an atheist/secular humanist for the past 20+ years. Frank became a secular celebrant because he recognizes that there are many people who do not want religion to be a part of their significant life events. He is available for weddings, funerals and other occasions for which a secular celebrant might be desired. Frank will work with you to tailor a ceremony to your needs. He lives in Muskegon, MI.
