My condolences to Frank Jr and the rest of Franks children. I worked for Frank at Franks Pizza for several years while putting myself through college. I will never forget those great times and Frank and his mom and Kay Powers working the kitchen. Playing Bocce ball and horse shoes and just generally having a great time. It never seemed like work, just like a big family affair having fun and keeping things light and easy. I also recall having our pre south side irish parade party and breakfasts in the back garage. To Frank Jr, had a great time playing on the teams with you as well.

I always called Frank's Pizza, the ultimate sports bar-sand volleyball, shoes, bocce, pool table, and a clubhouse (many parties). Frank always had the best pizza. My condolences to all the immediate family and Suzy, whom my wife, Karen and I enjoyed working with at ADP. Ed Mulvihill
