Fuchs, Frank

Frank Fuchs of New City, New York, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend, peacefully passed away at home on May 2, 2021. His final days were spent surrounded by his loving family, which he held so dear. He is preceded in death by his much-loved wife Nancy (McConnell). He is survived by his cherished children, Frank (Maureen), Garnerville, NY, Kathleen (Anthony), Vienna, VA, Daniel (Debora), Delaware, OH, Bonnie, Phoenixville, PA, and Jennifer (Kevin), Pearl River, NY; and beloved grandchildren, Matty, Stephanie, Patrick, Tony, Michael, Christine, Daniel, Grace, Gabriella, Olivia, and Kevin. He is also survived by his dear sisters, Agnes Mulroy and Lillian Moore and is preceded in death by his sister Anne Doyle. Frank was born in New York, New York on September 2, 1937 to Frank and Hannah (Donovan) Fuchs. Frank grew up in the Bronx, NY. He married his childhood sweetheart, Nancy, on Governor's Island in 1957. In 1962, they moved to Rockland County where they raised their family. Frank worked hard all of his life, he worked for the NYC Iron Workers, Murray’s Trucking Company, and the Town of Clarkstown, making lifelong connections along the way. As soccer became an integral part of his son’s lives, he played an important role in the day-to-day operations of the local soccer club the Rockland Rowdies. “Doc” Fuchs was a mentor and father figure to many, developing long lasting bonds throughout the soccer community and beyond. Frank and Nancy spent their later days visiting, building dollhouses for their granddaughters, and enjoying beach vacations with their entire family. After Nancy passed, daily dinners with “the boys” (Frankie & Pat) were treasured. Frank was a gentle caring soul who never met a stranger. He taught us what it means to be a wonderful father, grandfather, and friend. Frank will long be remembered for his fighting spirit and love of his family and friends. We take comfort in knowing he is reunited with his true love. Family will receive friends on Thursday, May 6, 2021 from 4-8pm at Higgins Funeral Home, 321 S. Main Street, New City, NY. A Funeral Mass will be held at 10am Friday, May 7, 2021 at St. Augustine's Church. Interment will follow at St. Anthony's Cemetery.

Mark and I send our prayers to the Fuchs family. Governor's Island is familiar to me. My dad worked there on the base. Going to work with dad was always a pleasure because we got to take the ferry.

We will be sending you all comfort and strength during this time.
