    In addition to being a devoted and active father Frankie was a devoted and active neighbor who cared enough about the neighborhood to attend the community and share his finding and feelings with those who did not. Good neighbors like that are appreciated and will be definitely missed. Leslie Mozon. 2 doors away.

    My Dad was a School Teacher, a Truck Driver, a Landscaper, a plant enthusiast, a Jeopardy wiz, a policy wonk, a news junkie, an opera and classical music appreciator, a history buff, a Coors drinker, a s**t talker, but the job he did best and worked hardest at was being my Dad. He made me read the classics, learn Spanish, do multiplication drills, understand Newtonian principles through science projects, led me to Transcendental Meditation, and helped me find my voice and my way through life. I am grateful for the 38 years he was Dad. Not a single day will pass when I won’t miss him, I was proud to be his daughter.
