To the Martino Family, I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I got to know Frank from selling tile to him, very early in my career. Mr. Martino was a class act all the way, and a Legend in the tile and terrazzo business. I always appreciated his professionalism and great character. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May he rest in peace.

“Frankie!”, as my Dad would always yell whenever he saw him. It would bring a huge smile to Frank’s face. They were best of friends when I was a kid, starting a tile company together, working out of town to support their families. Last I saw Mr Martino was at my Dads service two years ago. Bet my Dad is yelling “ Frankie” when he walks through those gates!! Best friends in the Best place ever! God Bless all of you! Amy Uplinger and family
