Cornish played for five NFL teams during a six-year career that started in 1990 after he was chosen in the sixth-round out of UCLA by the San Diego Chargers. He started five games for the Cowboys on their Super Bowl-winning teams in 1992 and 1993.

"A great loss and a great person," said family friend Bill McIntyre.

After his football career, Cornish was a stockbroker for Wachovia Securities and involved in numerous charities.

"The Bruin family sends our deepest, heartfelt sympathy to the Cornish family," said UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel. "I was a coach when he was a player, and he was just a gifted guy. Frank was a great guy in the locker room and a huge personality and a fun guy to be around."
