Frank's greatest joy was his family. He was proud of his children and grandchildren and was looking forward to being a great-grandfather in the next few days.

After his return from the service, he continued with his interest in radio and television repair. He went on to pursue his passion for photography by developing his own photos and repairing cameras.
Frank went on to start his own business before marrying his wife, Luisa D'Angelo, in Introdacqua, Italy in 1957. They started a family in Mount Vernon and made their move to Greenwich in 1967 where he began working for Color Tech TV in Cos Cob. Frank was a well-respected technician in the community for many years and was the first authorized VCR serviceman in Fairfield county.
