Whether you knew him as Frank, Frankie D, Zio Frank, or Mr. D, any memory of him instantly puts a smile in your heart and on your face. Frank had a natural and effortless ability to make every moment fun. He was always ready for an opportunity to be with friends and family. It didn't matter if it was stories over an espresso, meeting up for dinner, or dancing all night; Frank would always bring his smile and charm. Frank was dedicated to his family. Beyond his children and grandchildren, he had many nieces and nephews and was sure to find time for everyone. He was a constant source of support and love for all of us. He always delivered flowers on the holidays, fresh vegetables all summer long, a few minutes to make sure you were "tutto posto."
Frank loved life and truly lived every single day. You never knew where you were going to see him, but when you did, you were greeted with a smile and a hug.
The next time you have an espresso, or a drink with friends, raise your glass, smile, and toast Frank DiSalvo. Era uno su un milione.
