FRANK DAVIDOCK Frank T. Davidock, 64, of Sellersville, peacefully passed away in his sleep July, 29, 2012. He was the loving husband of Sharon (Shive) Davidock for 41 years. Frank was born in Ringtown, October 3, 1947, a son of the late Frank and Helen (Goyda) Davidock. Raised in Perkasie, he graduated from Pennridge High School in 1965. After completing a machining apprenticeship, he worked as a Machinist/Programmer at Pennfield Precision Inc. for 35 years and part-time at Geitz Machine for two years. Everyone knew Frank had a passion for music - especially, polkas. He played the accordion for over 55 years. In 1971 Frank started the band "The Occasions" which entertained for over 40 years. In his retirement, Frank also played solo as "Frank D on his Keys," and performed from Philadelphia to the Lehigh Valley. He loved entertaining. He brought joy to many and treasured the dancing, singing, and smiles he received in return. Frank imparted this passion for music to his children and grandchildren. One of Frank's lifelong hobbies and obsessions was trains. Every vacation had at least one train related adventure. To the grandchildren, no trip to Nana and Pop's house was complete without playing with the basement layout that rivaled some professional ones. Frank was an active parishioner at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church in Sellersville serving as an Usher, Lector, and Eucharistic Minister. Additionally, he was active in the Knights of Columbus for over 30 years serving as Membership Director, Deputy Grand Knight, and four separate terms as Grand Knight. Surviving with his wife are three sons, Steven Scott and his wife, Karen, of McMurray, Drew Alan and his wife, Teri, of Newton, NJ, and Peter John of Perkasie; daughter Lisa Ann and her husband, Jon Sensinger, of East Greenville; three grandchildren Emilia, Benjamin, and Shane; sister, Karen Shumihluk, of Kennedyville, MD; his "precious girls", dogs Casey and Winnie; and six grand-dogs.
