Frank, as he was known to his friends, was a Brooklyn native and married Joan Marie in 1957. They settled in Patchogue for their 58 years of marriage following his appointment to a research post at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Joan passed in 2016. Frank is survived by his three children, Robert, Brian and Lois; his sister, Marie; and his four beloved grandchildren, Christopher, Alex, Rory and Hope; as well as a host of others to whom his loss will be keenly felt. Frank was a member of the Patchogue Bay Power Squadron since 1983. He owned a 38-foot Bayliner, which he sold to another squadron family, and had seven merit marks.
