Obituary Condolences

Henry Frank Weeden TRENTON - Henry Frank Weeden, candle maker, sculptor and twice candidate for mayor of Trenton, NJ, passed away on Monday, October 7, 2013 from complications due to pancreatic cancer. He was 53 years old. Frank, as he was called by all who knew him, was born and raised in New York City. His education included the Lycee Francais, located in Manhattan, Beau Soleil in Villars-Sur-Ollon, Switzerland, the Hotchkiss School in Lakeview, CT, Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT and the Johnson Atelier in Princeton, NJ. Frank moved to Trenton in 1984 where he purchased a number of abandoned buildings which he renovated and rented for a number of years. In 1989 he acquired and operated a foundry for the casting of bronze sculptures of which Julian Schnabel was his principal account. In 1993, Frank founded Ana Design Corp. to manufacture a high quality candle with a stripe motif. In 2010 the Ana Candle website was changed to Five Stripes and began offering a full line of consumer products using the stripe motif. His concern for the economic and cultural needs of his adopted city led him to run for mayor of Trenton in both 2007 and 2011. Frank is survived by his mother, Vera K. Weeden of Lambertville, NJ; his father and step-mother Donald and Patricia Weeden of Danbury, CT; his three siblings Elizabeth Barek of Danbury, CT, Christina Roux of Seattle, WA and John Weeden of Santiago, Spain; his seven nieces and nephews and several step-siblings and their children. Memorial services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Frank's memory may be made to the Lustgarten Foundation at Lustgarten.org. Arrangements are under the direction of the Van Horn-McDonough Funeral Home, Lambertville, NJ 08530
