Frank Frontino, 84, a retired U.S. Air Force SAC, Senior Master Sergeant, passed away October 6, 2021, at his home where he was cared for by his loving family.
Frank was born in Richwood, West Virginia to parents, Frank Frontino Sr. and Elvera Lapa-Frontino. He joined the Air Force and became skilled as an expert Instrument Technician. His tours of duty took him to military bases in the U.S., Europe, and Southeast Asia. While stationed in France and visiting the Emerald Isle, Ireland, he met and married Sylvia Isaacson of Dublin. His military career took their growing family to New York, England, and Texas where they raised five children, finally settling in Fort Worth. Retiring with twenty-one years of service with the Air Force, he joined Miller Brewing Company as an Instrumentation and Controls Specialist until retirement.
Frank was an avid golfer and spent countless days on the golf course into his 70s and ventured on many senior tournaments with his military buddies to some favorite places like Las Vegas and Florida. He enjoyed the camaraderie of socializing at the VFW and American Legion, the preferred 19th-hole! Frank and his friends made happy memories cooking breakfasts and any number of celebrations with their wives and families that will forever be remembered.
