Frank was born in NYC on July 17, 1920. He grew up in the Bronx and loved to tell tales of the “old days”. How when he was five the most common mode of transportation was still horse and buggy. As a teenager he learned to drive and had to dodge trolley cars. His favorite story was how he met his wife for the very first time on 33rd Street across from the Empire State Building. As he would say she “put him in another world” and that feeling never changed. After a few brief months of marriage Frank entered WWII in service of his country. After returning from the war Frank pursued a career in Displays Carpentry, raised a family and moved them to Rockland County, NY where he lived until he retired to Cocoa, FL.

People knew Frank for his kind gentle nature and quick smile. He enjoyed life, was always up to having fun and did so right to the very end. Those who knew him loved him and those who loved him will miss him.
