Frank Louis Cimini, 87, died at his home August 27, 2012 after a lengthy illness. He served as a Radioman in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was born, raised and educated in Pittsfield. He came to New Orleans in 1963, fell in love with the city and never left. As a Proprietor of the Vieux Carre Restaurant formerly on Bourbon St., and more recently of Evelyn's Place on Chartres St., he was a beloved fixture in the French Quarter. He was as revered for his highly unbelievable, but always entertaining stories as he was for his gumbo and red beans and rice. Always a soft touch for those in need, he will be missed by those fortunate enough to have known him. Now, Mr. Frank will be kicking it up with the Heavenly Angels!
Son of the late Benedetto Cimini and Pellegrina Caropreso Cimini. He is survived by his daughter, Sandra Cimini, his brother Milo Cimini of Pittsfield, and his sister, Mrs. Jeanette Hamel of Scottsdale, Ariz.
He was predeceased by his companion Frances Evelyn Redman, his former wife Dolores Whitley, his sister Adeline Renzi and brothers Benedict, Louis and Arthur Cimini. He will be greatly missed by his many nephews, nieces and good friends.
