We were looking forward to honoring Frank for his service on our 21 June Honor Flight trip for WWII and Korean War veterans. Frank had selected that trip (in February when I talked with him) because it was his birthday month!
Our condolences to Frank's family and friends - we didn't realize until yesterday at the Orientation for the Flight, that Frank had passed away! He had put his application in last April with us and was offered 3 trips last fall - but was too busy with his beloved Ital Amer Club to go then:) We missed getting to meet another great American hero!

I will miss you Frank. You were the heart and soul of the Italian American Club. I am trying to grant your wish of a shelf and candles under the memorial wall. I admired your honesty and dedication to the club. I wish there was more people like you. I am so glad I got to spend time with you at the Italian Club. My sympathies to your family. Love you and Miss you dear friend.
George and I are saddened at the death of Frank. We both thought so much of him, he was an interesting man whom we enjoyed being with. We are sad for his family and his dear friend, Madellina.
Keep us all in prayer, and God Bless.
As a former member of the IACSB, I worked and socialized with Frank on numerous occasions. One of my fondest memories is Tuesday Bingo - and Frank's hat! He was devoted to the Club and will be missed. Ciao, Frank!!!
I remember many good times and conversations with Frank in the "lab" at Harris. Frank was always reliable and a friend.
Mr. Cona was an original in the very best sense. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the USS Worcester reunions while attending with my father who served with Mr. Cona. I always looked forward to seeing him at the reunions and will miss him greatly.
Frank was a very loving and giving person. He now has his reward in heaven with the Saints.
