I am posting this on behalf of Lee Hines and the Ordonez Kajukenbo Ohana as announced on Facebook.

"It is with a heavy heart that I have learned that our dear Uncle Frank has passed away last evening.  The Ordonez family requests that their privacy be honored during this difficult time.
 Funeral arrangements will be posted as the information becomes available."

Please respect the privacy of the family at this time and forward any questions to Lee.Hines@OrdonezKajukenbo.org

I will endeavor to pass on any information I can as it becomes available to me if you wish.

Dave

Rest In Paradise Uncle Frank. Thank you to Grandmaster Jason Groff for giving my students, my Wife and I the opportunity to eat and talk with Uncle Frank or else it would have never happened. It was an honor and a privilege.

The request for privacy extends to GM Jason Groff as well.
He has been inundated with too many calls, etc. already.

Please forward all questions to Lee Hines or myself and I will find out what I can.

Thanks
Dave
