Dear Vasta family - I am so sorry to learn of the passing of “Uncle Frank”. My college room mate and best friend Bob Vasta and I have many wonderful memories of Uncle Frank and Aunt Rose. While in Croton for Mr Vasta’s (Sal) funeral in Nov 2017 it was wonderful to see Uncle Frank and speak with him. He looked fabulous and I am shocked and saddened to learn the Lord has taken him from us. My wife Pat and I pray that he is right now with Aunt Rose, brother Sal and Aunt Josie, and we pray for peace and blessing for the entire Vasta family, one of the greatest families in America.

My fondest memory of Uncle Frank is how he lived life. In general. Always that smile of his, that positive attitude, his kindness. He was a true Christian gentleman who lived out his faith in every thing he did. Will miss him but know through our faith that we will see each other again . May he rest in peace.
