After serving in the U.S Army Medical Corps during the Korean War, he became employed by TransWorld Airlines. In 1975, he and a fellow employee completed a circumnavigational trip around the world in record time, resulting in his having a place in the 1975 Guiness World Book of Records.

Frank was an extensive traveler. In his retirement community apartment, he surrounded himself with memorabilia of his many trips.

Other interests over the years included the Wilmington Trail Club, archery club and deer hunting in the Appalachians.

He is survived by his son Brian Barbehenn, his daughter Jaci Barbehenn Ellmore, a sister Anna Stevenson and a granddaughter Hannah E. Barbehenn.

At the request of the family, a memorial service for family and friends will be held at a later date once the holidays have passed.
