AVIS DE DÉCÈS

Frank Neil Fleischer

10 mai 193810 septembre 2021

Frank N. Fleischer from Longboat Key, Fla. died on Sept. 10, 2021, from leukemia. He was 83.

Frank was born in 1938 in Portland, the son of Max Fleischer and Sadye Fleischer (Jacobson). As a child during World War II, Frank recalled that he had to keep the shades down because of a German submarine off the coast of Portland and that his mother collected excess cooking fat to help the army produce explosives. Frank graduated from Deering High School, where he first recognized that his leadership skills surpassed his athletic skills (he was manager of the football team).

Frank graduated from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1960, where he was president of the Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity. In 1965, Frank graduated from Boston University Law School. While at BU, he met his wife Barbara Chapper of Swampscott, Mass., on a blind date. They were married on August 25, 1963.

Frank was a nationally recognized corporate lawyer, specializing in municipal bonds and corporate securities. Frank began his career at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C., where he also attended Georgetown University Law Center for his LL.M. in Taxation, and then joined Boston’s Nutter, McClennen and Fish. In 1971, Frank made the change from big law firm life and New England winters and moved to Tampa, Fla. to join what would become the law firm of Schifino and Fleischer. Frank and his partner and friend Bill Schifino represented a number of prominent clients, including Tech Data, Raymond James, the Tampa International Airport Aviation Authority. Before retiring in 2016, Frank was a partner at Gray Robinson, where he led their public finance practice and pioneered working from home in both Longboat Key, Fla. and Raymond.

Frank had an exemplary record of public service. He was on the Board of Directors at Tampa General Hospital for over a decade and Board Chair for two years. During his retirement, he dedicated his time to nonprofit Board work, which included being Board Chair at Senior Friendship Centers, a founding Board member at CenterPlace Health (a Federally Qualified Health Center with five locations in Sarasota), and a member of the Finance Committee of Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

In addition to his nonprofit work, Frank enjoyed swimming in Sebago Lake, visits with his four grandchildren, and meals out with Barbara and friends (where he could be counted on to request tables away from the kitchen, slow service, burnt toast, and burning hot soup). Frank and Barbara also enjoyed traveling and Sarasota’s many performing arts.

Frank is survived by his beloved wife, Barbara; his children Stefanie (Alex) Seldin and David (Verónica); grandchildren Max, Lily, John and Mateo; and sister, Nancy Bellew.

My sincere condolences to the entire Fleischer family on your loss. I worked with Frank for 4+ years on the Finance Committee of Sarasota Memorial Hospital when I was a Board Member. Frank was both extremely smart and well versed in all things finance. He was also kind, caring and always looked out for the best interests of the greater Sarasota community. I will miss him for sure. What a great man!
