Francesco "Frank" Farfalla, 85, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018, at Hospice Alliance Hospice House, surrounded by his loving family, after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Born in Sambiase, Italy, on Sept. 24, 1932, he was the son of the late Nicola and Innocenza Farfalla.

On June 26, 1955, he married Giovannina Vescio in Italy. The following year they moved to Kenosha to make their home.

Frank was employed by American Brass and retired after 38 years. He also worked at Ruffalo Painting Company. His hobbies included gardening, hunting, and making his own sausage, cheese, and wine.

He is further survived by many nieces and nephews from Australia and Canada; other relatives; and many friends.

He was preceded in death by three brothers, Gesualdo, Salvatore, and Pasquale Farfalla.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Hospice Alliance for the compassionate care they provided Frank.
