In addition to his parents, Frank was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 60 years, Josephine (Tomei), and his brothers, Andrew, Joseph, John, Lewis, Henry, and Albert. He is survived by his sisters, Mary (John) Vukman and Ann Pavell; niece, Virginia Babb; nephew, Chuck (Chris) Hudkins; as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to both the Gardens of Western Reserve and Hospice of Summa for the excellent care given to Frank.
