Frank immigrated to the United States in 1951. He began his career as a tailor, mastering his craft. Frank then went to work for Castro Convertible where he perfected his art of upholstery. In 1976, Frank opened his family business DaSilva Upholstery, which he ran with his wife, Zita until their retirement in 1998. Frank was known for his quick-witted humor. Frank had the passion and ability to make anyone who met him smile. His hobbies were soccer, golf, gardening, investing, and especially family vacations.

On October 14, 1956, Frank married the love of his life Zita. They were married by his brother Rev. Antonio Teixeira at Our Lady of Fatima Shrine in Portugal.
