He is also survived by his brother Michael Allen Bordelon (Darlene), sister in laws, Celeste Tate Mathas (Barry) and Marlene Tate Griffin (John) and bother in laws, Raymond Edler and Christopher Tate.

Frank attended Redemptorist High School and the University of Southwestern Louisiana where he not only played football, but developed many lifelong friendships that he held so close to his heart. He was the co-owner/operator of Liuzza's Restaurant & Bar along with his brother. He so enjoyed running the business with his wife, son and grandsons. It was here at the neighborhood restaurant where Frank found his calling. His jovial and affectionate personality became the hallmark of the spirit of Liuzza's.
