Francis Sobocinski

Francis Sobocinski, age 80, of New Castle, DE went home to be with the Lord on October 3, 2013. He proudly served his country in the United States Army. Frank was a member of Our Lady of Fatima Parish. He was a loyal fan to the Phillies and the Ravens, especially after Joe Flacco joined the team. He was loved for his great sense of humor by all. Frank cherished the times spent with family, especially his trips to White House Beach where he enjoyed boating, crabbing, fishing and having a beer with his beloved wife, cioci and uncle and later with his children and their families. His greatest pride was being a Dziadzi to his grandkids and smiling with them through all of their accomplishments, big and small.

Frank is survived by his wife of 59 years, Dorothy; 1 son, Edward Sobocinski and wife Sandra; 2 daughters, Patricia Piovoso and husband James; Jacqueline Huxtable and husband Barton; grandchildren: Vincent, Richie, Judy, Lisa, and Greg.
