I worked with Frank during my 20+ years at District 70. He was a great man, supervisor, and friend. My family and I want to send our condolences to the Bartolo family.

Frank Bartolo was one of the most genuine, honest, hard working employees District 70 ever had! He was a gentleman, a loving husband, nurturing father, and community role model. Though it has been some time since I have seen Mr. Bartolo, I have such fond memories of him as a fellow District 70 employee. Yes, a remarkable man, Frank Bartolo!!! I pray that the memories of the good times with family give all comfort in the days ahead. May God hold all of you tightly in His hands and may you be comforted knowing that heaven is rejoicing with the arrival of another faithful soul! God Bless all of you!

My deepest sympathy to the Bartolo family. Frank was a very kind man. He is now at peace & longer in any pain.
My dad (Gene Salvo) & Frank were friends since childhood. Frank would call / visit my dad to see how he was doing, these last few years. Frank's thoughtfulness meant a great deal to my dad & me. Now the two of them can spent their time, in heaven, talking about "old days".
My prayers & thoughts are with all of you at this sad time. Keep all your special memories close to your heart to help you through this difficult time.
My deepest sympathy.

I want to extend my condolences to the
Bartolo family and to the Moscos...I remember what a lovely family that Bartolos were when their children were very small. I have kept in touch through the Moscos over the years. God bless each of you and bring you peace. Brigid Flanagan

My condolences to the Bartolo family. I can remember being a young kid and Frank coming by to see my grandparents. He was always very nice and a gentleman and greatly respected. He will truly be missed.
