Born in Fontanafredda, Pordenone, Italy, August 13, 1940, Frank passed away at Fellburn Care Centre on January 29, 2018 after a recurrence of prostate cancer. Frank was a proud member of the Teamsters Local 213 and was well known in the trucking community, often working with City of Vancouver crews. Frank was also well known in the Italian community, frequently found at the Italian Cultural Centre and very active with the local chapter of the Alpini. Frank arrived in Vancouver in 1967 and met and married his true love, Silvanna De Pieri. Her death in 1989 was difficult for Frank and he never remarried. He remained close to his in-laws. Frank was predeceased by his parents, his siblings Gian Luigi and Gianna, and his in-laws, Giuseppe, Onorina and Gino. He is survived by sister-in-law Angela in Italy and nephew Roland (Carmen) in Switzerland and God-daughter Julia of Vancouver.
