He was educated in Little Falls schools and was a veteran of the Korean Conflict, having served in the United States Army in Germany. On April 16, 1955, in St. Mary's Church, Little Falls, he was united in marriage to the former Patricia A. O'Hara; the couple sharing 58 years of commitment, love and mutual respect.
    Frank worked for over 40 years as a tool and dye maker for General Electric, Utica. He was a member of the Ilion Elks Lodge and Holy Family Parish, Little Falls. Frank was passionate about life, horses, wildlife and the love for his family.
