To all the Parzchs and the extended families - we were shocked and saddened by Frankie's sudden passing. Please know that you are not alone in your grief and we hope that, in time, the pain will lessen. We have had the pleasure of getting to know Frankie at Gail's annual Thanksgiving bash, when the whole family descends at her house in SC. Our last memory of Frankie is hanging out in the living room at Gail's after stuffing our faces and chatting about - you guessed it - racing. Rest In Peace, Frankie.

Frank - I will be forever grateful that you came back into my sister MaryLou's life almost 8 years ago. You made her feel treasured. You were one of the good guys. You came into Colleen's life and filled a void. You constantly gave of yourself - over and over again. I ache for them and your family and friends. All will miss you terribly - see you in heaven.

I have tried to express my grief, but there are no words. I can only express my gratitude! Frankie was so much more to us than part of our racing family. He truly was family. He started racing with us in 1994 and he chose to permanently join our family soon after. He literally moved into our home. There wasn't a special event or weekend getaway without Frankie. When Danielle was born she was blessed to have two amazing men in her life on a daily basis. Frankie was her second dad, her God Father, her uncle, her big brother, and her playmate all rolled into one. He truly would do anything for anybody, he was that kind of guy, but he would move Heaven and Earth for Danielle if he could. She is the daughter he never had. He worked with us Monday-Saturday, but Sunday was "Danielle's Day" He would spend the whole day with her. (Sometimes we were invited to tag along, sometimes not.) Danielle's kindergarten teacher, wanted to know who the infamous "Frankie" was and requested to meet him. I vividly remember Frankie sitting in that tiny chair nervously shaking with sweaty palms, being lectured to about the fact that children need rules and boundaries and special "Danielle Days" where Danielle can do anything she wants and have anything she wants just was not in her best interest. Frankie respectfully disagreed with her. Frankie always gave with his whole being. Every day he lived with positivity, purpose, and passion. He was always learning and growing. We are truly honored that Frankie chose us to be his family and share his love with us every day, 24/7, 365. I give thanks to his mother for raising such a caring, kind, gentle, giving, loving man and I thank his other family for sharing him with us. I know our world was so much brighter with him in it. His passing has left a void we will never be able to fill. We are so blessed to have bountiful memories. I can never say it enough, THANK YOU, FRANKIE! WE LOVE YOU AND WILL FOREVER MISS YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH!

Uncle Frankie, my Godfather, i still can’t believe the phone call i got last night/this morning. I saw you last week and we talked about graduation, senior year, and the races i would be going to see if i ended up in certain places. We talked about your kickboxing workouts and my boxing workouts and about how good you felt. I got to test the torque of a vehicle with you at your shop and see the complexity of putting a racing vehicle back together. I’m so grateful to have seen you one last time and I’ll see you again some day. Finally relaxation for the hardest worker i know, i love you.

My uncle Frankie, I honestly don’t know the words to say. I learned to live my best life the happiest way possible and I learned that from watching you. You have been at everything every event or family gathering. You made sure never to miss it and for that I am so grateful. I love you and will miss you beyond measure. Stay with us always and keep laughing. The biggest hugs and kisses.

I had the pleasure of working with Frankie and his Dad, George for many years at Regional Scaffolding. We were not just co-workers, we became family. Not everyone is lucky to work at a place where your CO-workers become your friends and family. I was. So many great memories from Henry working in Frankie’s pit crew. Many trips, lots of laughs , always a great time. We cherish those times and while we missed Frankie when he moved we knew he was leaving to do what he loved and to be with his family. His infectious smile is what we will hold in our hearts. His friendship can never be replaced. Rest In Peace our friend. Give your Dad a kiss for us. Gone too soon. ❤️❤️

Although we did not spend our entire lives together as we were separated by time and distance, I have often thought of Frankie and our days running around Greenpoint and Woodcliff Park. Those great and not sometimes not so great (we got in trouble) memories will always be with me. I offer my condolences and I will keep Frankie and his family in my thoughts and prayers.

I had the pleasure of working with Frank as his piano teacher for the past 3 years. During that time we became friends. Frankie was a dedicated student working around his rigorous work/ travel schedule. He came a long way since our first lesson. I'm proud to have been along with him on his musical journey. I will miss our time together and offer my heartfelt condolences to family and friends..(still in shock)..
