Frank was my boss at MSHA in Pittsburgh in the 70's when I was just a teenager - he held court over we young girls and we loved him dearly - I have since learned that not every boss is the kind of man he was - intelligent, giving, compassionate, very funny and just an all around great man. I was just thinking about him the other day and decided to google his name. So sorry to see that he had passed. My condolences to his beloved Shirley (he spoke of her so often with such affection) and his children and grandchildren. Just wanted you to know that he made such a positive impact on my life. RIP
Dear Shirley and Families, I'am so sorry for the loss of Frank. He would always bring a smile to my face when the two of you would come to the Legion for a fishfry. He will be missed. May God Bless you all.
Shirley, et al: first of all, what a wonderful picture of Dad! Second, and most important, is that I hope all of you know how much you mean to me. The days spent at your home in Dale City, Virginia, were some of the best (and funniest) of my life. I am so glad that we have kept in touch over the years. If there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to give me a call. We can all cherish those wonderful memories of a life well-lived, and a heart well-loved. He will be missed, and undoubtedly by more than you may ever know.
Gramps, we know you will always be looking down on us always. You were the solid foundation in our family. We always looked to you for guidance, strength, and wisdom. I feel honored to call myself your granddaughter, your lil TAZ. I love you and know that I am blessed with many years of fond memories of you. You will always be in my heart...
Dear George,I want you to know that I am thinking of you with heartfelt thoughts for the loss of your dad.It's been a long time(49 yrs!),but the memories will never cease. Sent with love to all,"Sunny"
Although we lived far apart from each other, you were always one of my fave uncles. I was not aware of your many life achievements until I read your obit. Congrats on a life well-lived ... you will be missed.
You were the Father of my Aunt. I dont beilieve o ever met you bit that means nothing because you are family. Family means good times, love and understanding. You will have a special place in my heart because you are family. Look down and console your loved ones. And my prayers to all family who are grieving. You are loved and will be missed. Farewell sir!
There are very few families that take in strangers as loved ones. Uncle Frank was the head of this kind of family. Never once did I feel like I didn't belong and my kids laugh and remember the good times shared with Uncle Frank, Aunt Shirley and the Delimba's. You will be missed Uncle Frank, and never forgotten.
Papa Frank, you are dearly missed. You were a wonderful man and you will always hold a place in our hearts. We love you so much and we will NEVER EVER forget you. We will cherish the memories we have with you forever. The boys and I miss you so much!!! XOXO
Love you, Grandpa. I will cherish the memories and look back on all the time we had together. It is hard to think right now that 37 years of memories will have to last me the rest of my life... I lost my grandfather, cheerleader, friend and hero. Not a day will go by that you won't be missed. Give everyone up there a hug and kiss for me. I will see you again ;) xoxo Peepers
