He served as an officer in the U.S. Navy in 1944. He was a Lieutenant in the Syracuse City Fire Department retiring in 1969 after 22 years and is one of the oldest surviving members. He was a gentle, humble and generous father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who instilled many invaluable lessons in all of us. Frank was a devoted husband of 66 wonderful years of marriage to his wife Edie who predeceased him in 2016. Frank and Edie were pioneers in the Tupperware organization. They joined the company in 1953 and became franchise owners of E-Z Distributors Inc. from 1958-1996. Frank, along with his wife Edie, built a beautiful legacy together and inspired the lives of too many to count both in business and out. Frank cared deeply for his family, church, and community. He was honored to receive along with his wife Edie, the Immaculata Award in the church and the Ad Astra Award in business. He encouraged entrepreneurship and helped build business dreams. He contributed to the building of the St. Margaret’s Church, was a long-standing member of the Third Base organization, and supported many other local and national charities. Frank had a strong faith and strong work ethic. His faith shined like the season of Christmas and he will be missed tremendously.
