Frank was a sweetheart of a man, kind and generous and always a joy to be with. I hit the jackpot when I got him for my father-in-law! I feel blessed to have had him in my life. Frank was a true gentleman, and a gentle man. He holds a place in my heart forever.
P.S. We Know That Ryan is welcoming his Grandfather to place very specially prepared for him....Sue&Bob

I remember looking over at my Uncle Frank while my father and him were watching tv on Perry street in Belleville. When I looked at Uncle Frank and I looked at those other guys on tv, I scratched my head and wondered why my Uncle Frank wasn't a movie star! Great guy. I hope he runs into my Father, Tom Sr. two Vets, same war.......Love Charlie+Alicelynne
Frank was raised by his mother in Belleville, N.J., after his father, Antonio, a World War I U.S. Army infantryman, died several years after the war as a result of combat injury -- he and his unit were caught in a mustard gas attack. The mustard gas slowly destroyed Antonio's lungs; he suffered for several years before passing. Frank, despite this difficult beginning, grew into a man of great character. Throughout his life, he was proud of his service to this nation as a U.S. Marine in WWII's Pacific Theater.
I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Frank's passing. I will always remember him as a caring Uncle, calm and reasoned. My thoughts, prayers and love are with you Aunt Mary, Frankie, Janet and your entire family. I am sure Uncle Frank is resting in peace.
We will miss Uncle Frank very much. He was the most patient & kind man. I will always cherish memories of him letting my brother & I steer the boat through the tall grasses! Give my mom a kiss, love you! Daria Coccaro
My father was one of the most gentle souls, a man remember by all who knew him as just that. I was fortunate to have my dad for ninety years and also very grateful to have spent the last month taking care of him till he passed. I have cherished memories that will carry me the rest of my life. I know the angles came to get you and heaven is a better place because you are there now. Bobby and I have and will always love you so much.
Sorry to hear that Frank passed away. He was a good friend and neighbor . We sure do miss you guys. Mary we love you.

My father was an incredibly decent, sweet and caring man. He worked so hard to give me and my sister the best. Saying goodbye after visits during the last five or so years, he and I would hug, and each of us would get teary eyed. Going to miss him so much.
I didn't know Frank but he was a Marine and that makes him my brother.
My condolences to the family
