Obituary

Noble "Frank" Franklin Cahall III of Newark, DE, age 52, passed away Tuesday, December 3, 2019. He was born in Elkton, MD on November 30, 1967 to Catherine Ann (Goodchild) Coe and the late Noble Franklin Cahall, Jr.

Frank grew up with family members who were mechanics and found an interest in transmissions. He started building transmissions as a side job, which evolved in to his own business. In 2004, Frank started Cahall Performance Transmissions in Elkton, MD, and moved to Newark, DE, where he specialized in racing transmissions. He beat the goal of building the best transmission to overcome many obstacles in the racing world with the specialized 4L60E General Motors transmission, which continues to beat that goal, even today. Frank built his own car and raced it at the Cecil County Dragway, achieving a top 10 rating in the country. He had a passion for racing and loved being at the track and car shows, showing he and his wife's '01 Corvette "Trixie".
