Frank was a loving person who was generous of heart to the ones he loved. His laughter and mischievous sense of humor was infectious. Frank was a painter and handyman by trade. He was passionate about fishing and enjoyed sharing the water with someone he cared about. Frank was a simple man who lived a simple life. The best part of Frank was that he put others needs before his own, often helping others before he would help himself. Frank touched the lives of all who truly knew him and was a shining light in the hearts of those who loved him. His mother, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends will forever hold him dear in their hearts.
May he forever rest in the arms of God’s loving embrace.
