Frankie was 86 years young. He passed peacefully at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital on February 26, 2021.
He was a proud coal miner in number 12 Colliery. He was always there with a helping hand for his family, friends and neighbours. He loved his family dearly and would often say I love all my kids the same. He enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting. He loved telling jokes and playing jokes on his family and friends. He also loved music and played several interments. He was a coal miner so he played hard, drank hard and loved hard. He went above and beyond in decorating for Christmas and Halloween and other occasions. He always tried to make holidays special for his family and friends. His favorite TV shows were the Price is Right and Dr. Pill. His door was always open for friends and family for a good game of Tarbish as long as he won.
