  • Dear Lisa and Andy,

    We have known Frank since moving to Marion and later had the privilege of meeting you, Lisa. Frank was always laughing and saying something funny and was a real salesman with that personality. Like a lot of other people, we were shocked to hear of his passing. During the coming days we pray you and Andy will find the special memories you have of him will sustain you. We ask Gods blessings that he will hover near you and Andy during this most difficult time.

    All our love and prayers,

  • I have known Frankie for over 45 years. Always have considered him a friend. Once I moved out of state we didn’t visit much over the years, however this past fall we got together and had a wonderful visit. I was looking forward to our next visit and I still am. May you rest and be with the lord.

    Your friend,

  • Lisa & Andy,
    I wasn’t aware of Frank’s passing until today. He was a pillar of the St. Mary community and will be sorely missed. 5:00 Mass will have a large hole in it now. His shoes will be hard to fill.
    Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this extremely difficult time. God bless you and watch over you in the days ahead.
