Cyril F. "Frank" Reesby, age 79, of Erie, passed away on Friday, June 13, 2014, at Manchester Commons.
He was born in Kent, England, on November 8, 1934, son of the late Cyril and Muriel Hills-Reesby.
Frank immigrated to the United States with his family in 1969, to work for The American Sterilizer Company. His career took him all over the world, with two of his and Maureen's favorite stops being Thailand and Switzerland. He enjoyed bowling, and was very proud of his yard, as he loved gardening. After retiring from Midmark Corporation, he enjoyed traveling with Maureen in their RV.
He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 57 years, Maureen Jordan-Reesby, in 2013, and a sister, June Cross.
He is survived by a daughter, Deborah Mogel (James) of Erie, two sons, Antony Reesby (Diane) of Austintown, Ohio and Andrew Reesby (Shana) of Bradford, Ohio, three grandchildren, Michael and Jamie Mogel of Erie, Pa., and Skylar Reesby of Bradford, Ohio, and four great-grandchildren, Jayla, Darren, Jordan and Leon, all of Erie, Pa., and many nieces and nephews in England.
