I remember Francis from bingo at St. Francis many years ago. His family lived two houses over from our house on Bigler Avenue (all long gone now). My mother is also very saddened because she had spoken to Francis some months ago. We always smiled at his booming voice and his kidding at bingo.

Dearest Jan,
Visits to 518 Ogden Ave. to see my parents hold many cherished memories. Among them were times with your mom and dad. His joy filled greeting, advice on an outdoor project like the time I undertook constructing the front porch steps, and best of all times spent harmonizing around the piano are a few that come to mind. He will be greatly missed. Deepest sympathy.

Yacabucci Family - Frank was a great friend to our family when we lived in Clearfield in the late 1990's. Always enjoyed his visits when we moved to York and later Lewisburg. Our parents enjoyed getting to know him also. We'll always remember his love for his family, his church, singing, good music, Penn State and more. Rejoicing he is with Carmen in the eternal presence of Jesus!
Our deepest sympathy and prayers for comfort. Brian & Joanne Vasey and family
