Frank is survived by his wife Angela, sons, Peter (Jennifer), Austin (Linda), Richard (Lisa) and Paul (Tracey), his grandchildren, Mark, Justine, Christopher, Kevin, Ryan, Alyssa, Gavin and Megan. Frank is also survived by his brother Gabriel (Gilda) and sister-in-law Nancy Porco as well as a large extended family. Frank was predeceased by his parents, brother Tony, and sister Rosina. Frank was born in Cellara, Cosenza, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1948. He worked at McGavin's Foods for 40 years retiring in 1992. Frank enjoyed gardening, watching wrestling, hockey and football (especially the Maple Leafs and Blue Bombers) and weekly outings with the YMCA St. Vital Seniors Group. Frank's greatest pleasure was spending time with his children and grandchildren especially at the Sunday gatherings for pasta. Pallbearers will be Douglas Jones, Sal Maida, Will Woytowich, Will Baetsen, Mark Scaletta and Frank Porco. Special thanks to staff on the fifth floor and Palliative Care at the St. Boniface General Hospital for all their kind and compassionate support.
