My memories of my cousin Frank are mostly from when I was young and at "the shore." Christel and family, I am so sorry for your loss and will hold you all in prayer as you grieve Frank's passing.

To my Darling Husband of 56 years what a journey we went thru. From your being a small boat builder to owning and operating a marina on the Magothy River in Maryland.
You have always been there for me and our four children….teaching all of us how to run a business, answer the phone, handle the gas dock and the customers. You also taught us fun things to do such as fishing, crabbing, water skiing and scuba diving. You taught the boys about rebuilding and fixing engines on boats, on cars and teaching Richard how to do the finishing work on the cabinets you built.
We all helped build our house here in Florida and we all learned from that experience.
You were the craftsman…designing and building the beautiful cabinets and furniture in our home as well as in other homes surrounding us.
My darling Frank, I Miss you and Love you so much. Be at Peace my Darling. The Lord is with you.

My Dad loved his family and he taught us well. I learned everything from running a business to building a house, how to change a tire and fun things too like skiing, fishing and scuba diving. We did everything together as a family. I would not be the strong independent person I am today without him and my mom.
He also taught us about faith and god which is why this is a celebration of his life and journey into heaven. He prayed the rosary daily and was a devout Christian. We will miss him greatly but we will see him again should we be blessed to enter into heaven. Love you Dad, see you soon!!

The greatest Poppop! Was always there for us grandkids! My favorite was sitting down watch old western shows and movies. They always caught my attention. Sometimes we didn’t have to talk but just sit there and watch those shows and eat sour dough hard pretzels! When I was younger he would give us kisses goodbye but rub his whiskers/beard all over our face. What we like to call is a “whisker kiss”. That was Matthews (great grandson) favorite too! The days going in the wood shop to watch you work and see all the amazing projects you were working on.....I love you.. You will be missed but NEVER forgotten !
