  1. Working with Frank was very special. His sense of humor, dedication, love of his work, and connection to all was spectacular.He was a terrific family man as well. These types of teacher/coaches don’t come around too often. He will be misses.

  2. Frank was a wonderful man. His love for his family is something they will have forever, and I hope will comfort them. As a brand new teacher, Frank’s kindness and humor meant a great deal to me. He made sure all the staff at Great Hollow were “taken care of� no one was a stranger. The wonderful time spent with him, Joanne and his family was fabulous. Frank embodied Great Hollow to me as a young teacher. He and my former husband played football together in high school, and had lots of war stories to share. Thank you, Frank for being the fine person you were. You will be missed, and fondly remembered.

  3. Frank was a very special man with many talents. I was privileged to be his co-worker for many years. His teaching and coaching skills were as unique as he was. He was the Mayor of Great Hollow, the lead teacher in the physical education department, the dance manager, the wine man, the soda man, ‘coach,’ ‘Mr. P.’ and to those of us who really knew him, beloved Frank. Over the years, people may have taken his position but NOONE ever took his place. He was an avid stamp collector, jelly maker, sauce maker, antique collector and dog lover. His love of his family was always at the forefront and he adored his wife, Joanne. My life is so much better because I knew Frank. He created special memories for all of those were in contact with him. Rest in peace big guy. You will always be loved and remembered. Connie Antonetti
