I met Frank at a Notre Dame send-off in 1976, before my freshman year and his first year in Law School. I had considered attending U. of Scranton (as he did) & saw his name as an Award Winner in some of U of S's literature. I introduced myself and asked if he was the same man about whom I'd read. He seemed very surprised but at the same time pleased that I had read, remembered and mentioned it. He and I shared several meals in the South Dining Hall. I Always enjoyed our conversations, very much so. I was extremely impressed with his Intelligence. And he even introduced me to some of his Law School classmates. When I was there, LS students didn't tend to interact with undergrads, but Frank ALWAYS made me feel more than welcome. I was deeply saddened when I heard of his passing, but will always remember him for the Great Guy I came to know him to be. I feel honored to have known him, and hope Faith, Strength & Courage will soon see his Loved Ones through this Most Difficult Time.

I was privileged to know Frank when we worked together at Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis. He was an outstanding lawyer and a great example to his colleagues of all ages. Frank always had perceptive insights which were often expressed with great wit and good humor. He could always be relied upon to look at a situation with genuine humanity and sympathy for others. It was not possible to know him without respecting his intellect and his courage to persevere and overcome the difficulties that a cruel disease placed in his path. May Frank rest in peace and in the comforting arms of God.

Frank was a great friend, an interesting and remarkable story-teller, an eternal optimist, and the most selfless person I have known. What was most remarkable about him was his humility. He never told stories about himself, but always about others: first of all, his family; then friends, professional colleagues, college and law school classmates, and of course, historical figures. His generous donations to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at St. Thomas More Church helped literally thousands of the poor in South Jersey, who would not have received assistance otherwise; especially over the past year when the pandemic made their lives even more difficult. This was the effect Frank had through his donations: Cathedral Kitchen: Helped them to provide meals for people in need in Camden and to continue the job-training program to get people out of the cycle of poverty. Purchased a washer and dryer, so those same impoverished individuals and families, have a place to wash their clothes. Purchased computers for the culinary arts program so graduates could compose resumes and search and find permanent employment. Joseph’s House: Supported this facility that opens its doors to the homeless, in order to provide temporary shelter. Holy Name School: Helped partially defray the cost of tuition for several elementary school children, which gave them an alternative to the public school system in Camden. Helped fund Thanksgiving meals each year for over 100 families served by the school, as well as elderly and disabled individuals who lived alone. Food Banks: Helped support several other food banks in South Jersey, which had a much more extensive reach than we could do on our own. Food Deliveries: Enabled us to maintain a food pantry, from which we could deliver bags of food on a regular basis to the poor in the Parish. Rent and Utilities: Helped prevent evictions and loss of heat and electricity when people were at their most vulnerable. Above all, he helped save lives and made all of us who knew him, better individuals. That is Frank’s legacy. It is something we should all strive to achieve. Sincerely, Paul Rossi
