Frank moved into Lakeshore Senior Living soon after my father, Bill (Vito) Pellegrino, moved there. They seemed to have an immediate bond with each other. They sat at the same dining table with a great group of guys where they shared life stories and complained about pretty much everything. I joined this group several times when they played trivia. Their group name was the Brain Trust! When I visited, Frank would seek me out, calling me the daughter from Boston. My sisters said he’d ask about me. He was so sincere in sharing our grief after my father passed away last year. I made one last visit a few months later and made sure I spent time with Frank. He was truly a special man. My condolences to his family.

Frank became a very close friend essentially from the first day I met him in 1977. I was a newly appointed workers' compensation law judge (ALJ) in Detroit. Frank was an established ALJ who lived in Grosse Pointe. When I moved from Flint to Grosse Pointe with my wife, Barbara, and three kids under age 7, Frank was there for us. Frank introduced me to all of his close friends whom he had known since his college days. Frank's close friends became my close friends. There are so many Frank stories/events I would not know where to start, or where to end. I will share just one. When my father passed away in Alpena many years ago, Frank and two other dear friends drove up north to be with me when I really needed a close friend. That's what true friends do. My last communication to Frank was when I just sent him a St. Patrick's Day card and a modest Irish gift. As everyone knows, Frank was a fiercely proud Italian. The reason behind my sending the card and gift was related to the special personal relationship we had that I will not share. I was very fortunate to have Frank as a friend. I will miss him very much. May God bless you Frank.
