Frank was a graduate of Mt. Pleasant High School where he played on the high school hockey team. He loved sports, Italian food and dry jokes. He was a caring and compassionate man who loved his family more than anything else. Frank also loved Rico, his beautiful little Chihuahua. He was funny, had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes and stories. Many times, when telling his stories, he’d hear chorus’ of “We’ve heard that one before Frank” after which everyone would laugh. Frank was beloved by his family and will remain forever in our hearts
