Frank was an only child, but had 9 children of his own. He retired from the CTA. Not only was he an avid bowler, but he loved hockey and the Chicago Blackhawks the most. He definitely had Southside pride as a White Sox fan, living close to the stadium. A Bears fan, too, of course!. He was very passionate about always watching the games on TV.  He recorded every Jeopardy episode and knew the answers before the contestants. He enjoyed a little coffee with his sugar! He loved God and never missed a weekly mass. He was a great man and grandfather who always made his grandchildren feel loved, even though some lived 175 miles away. He will be missed by all who knew him
