Born to Italian immigrants from Cuneo, Italy, June 20,1923 in Chowchilla, CA. Frank raised his family in San Jose after serving as a Sgt. in the U.S. Army during WWII.Servicing many old time San Jose markets, he owned and operated Day and Night Refrigeration Service, and later owned several small businesses before retiring to northern California. Eventually he returned to San Jose in 2005. Frankie loved his family, along with his passion for opera, boxing, fishing and the SF 49ers. His glass was always half full in life, for simple pleasures he enjoyed. We were blessed to have him for so many good years.
