Frank was a member of Local 1010, S.O.A.R, Woodman of The World, and Post 369. Dad loved his football, polka's, and he loved to dance. A jack of all trades, he loved to help people. A mentor and well respected among the family, he would never refuse to lending a hand to anyone. Frank was a "Godfather " to all the family.
Best of all, my Dad enjoyed his J&B and he was content, a simple man.
My Dad always did it his way, Frank Sinatra “I Did It My Way".
He will truly be missed by all.
