We were so sad to hear of Frankie's passing. He truly was one of the kindest, gentle and caring man we ever had the pleasure to know. He was very special to all of us. We often talked about him being the last of the Trimboli "carport gang" and all the laughs those guys had retelling the same stories over & over. Our thoughts & prayers are with you all. May you find comfort in all your beautiful memories.

Aunt Betty, Pam and JoAnn thinking of you all. He was such a wonderful and special man. Always a smile whenever I saw him. Only 8 years older than my mom she always told me how he was more like a big brother than an uncle to her. She always lit up just thinking about him. Loved him dearly. Love and prayers for you.
