A Friend to All
Frank A. Fosco, age 54, passed peacefully on January 23, 2014, to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was surrounded with the love of his family, his devoted and loving wife, Laura, and son, Frankie, at his home.
Frank was born in Erie on June 26, 1959, the son of Dolores DiCarlo Fosco and the late John Fosco. He graduated from Academy High School. Frank worked at Tony's Auto since the age of twelve, took over the family business, and changed the name to Frank's Auto and 4 Wheel Drive. He never missed a day of work. He was self- employed for 36 years, and ran the business with his brother Danny.
Besides his mother, Frank is survived by Laura Virgilio Fosco, his wife of 31 years, and his son Frankie, Frankie's girlfriend Christina Duris; five brothers, John, Gerald, Thomas, Danny (Michelle), and Joseph (Darlane) Fosco, his sisters-in-law Deborah (Paul) Bender, Pauline Fosco, Cheryl Morgan, Karen Virgilio, Jennifer (Tim) Beveridge, and brother-in-law, Nick Virgilio. Frank's abundant love and welcoming advice to his many nieces and nephews will be missed by: Cindy, Sarah, and Lauren Fosco, Kelly Haffey, Bruce Morgan, Amber and Aubrey Humennyj, Angela Ignasiak, Kayla and Erica Virgilio, Timmy and Jessica Beveridge, Jason, Heather, Kylie, John, Dan, Joe, Lucas, and Nicholas Fosco. His many great-nieces and nephews will deeply miss him. His presence will be sadly missed by the family pets, Rocky, Rudy, Dozer, and Savior.
Frank was a member of Sacred Heart Church and served as a Eucharist minister. Frank's service to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ shined through his passion for helping others, finding the good in all, and being thankful for every day that was given to him. Frank had an unceasing love of others and an ability to celebrate every day. In his passing days, friends described Frank as godfather, idol, hero, strong, gentle, generous, role model, unconditional love, my rock, and angel. Some of Frank's favorites were the "board meetings" on Friday, at the garage with his close and dear friends, being our "grill master," entertaining by the pool, and landscaping his beautiful yard. Frank will be remembered as a loving and devoted husband and father, a friend to all, and the heart of our family. Frank was a gift from God and we were very blessed to have him.
