Frank Edmond Devine

November 15, 1952March 7, 2019

Frank Edmond Devine, age 66, of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, passed away while vacationing in Treasure Island, Florida on Thursday March 7th, 2019, with the woman he loved sharing his life with, Gloria (McDade) DiOrio. Frank was born November 15th, 1952 in Salem, Ohio, the son of Nola J. (Riddle) Cooper of Salem, and the late Frank Edwin Devine. He was a graduate of Salem Senior High School, and lived and worked in Salem for most of his adult life, with over 30 years’ experience working at Salem Blanking Division of Master Parts, finishing his career there as the shop foreman. Frank’s life was not defined by his education or his career. His life is best defined by the way he connected with people, and the way other people felt about him. Growing up his friends and family knew him as Tadpole, and would still occasionally address him by that name when they would see him around town. He was a member of several social clubs in Salem, including the Eagles, Amvets, and the Italian Club where he used to gather with friends for a cold beer on a night out. When he wasn’t meeting up with friends on a Friday or Saturday night, you could find him by his pool or out by the lake, ready to cook out for anyone who wanted to join the party. Frank’s smile was infectious and you knew you were in for a good time when you were with him. Frank was preceded in death by his Father, Frank Edwin Devine, by a younger brother, James M. Devine, and by his Step-Father, Leo F. Cooper. He is survived by his beloved mother, Nola J. Cooper, three sisters, Gina (Mark) Heim of Staunton, Virginia, Pauline J. Devine, and Mary Devine both of Salem, and a brother, Roger Devine of Salem. Frank also has 3 sons, Todd (CJ) Devine of Youngstown, Brad (Beth) Devine of Leetonia, and Phillip T. Devine of Salem. He also has two step sons from a previous marriage, Jason and Brandon (Michelle) Smith both of Salem, who he treated like his own for more than 18 years of their lives. Three grandchildren share his last name, but he was like a grandfather to 8 more little ones from his close bond with the McDade family and the Smiths. He also had several cousins, nieces, and nephews who will miss him dearly. Frank’s wishes were to be cremated. Friends and family will be received at a date to be determined with a brief memorial service to follow. In memoriam, please consider a donation to the National Kidney Foundation.

Although we didn’t know each other long, I feel like I’ve known you for a lifetime based on the memories shared by others. From the moment we met, you were kind and welcoming. Thank you. I will never forget how excited Cason always was when talking about “Bubba & Frank”. I know you will be missed by so many. Rest In Peace.

Frank was one of the most genuine, kind, and loving people I know, and was such a perfect companion for my Aunt Gloria. My heart hurts. You will be deeply missed.
