Frankie worked and retired from Super Salvage, Inc., as a crane operator, having worked on many construction sites throughout Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
A native Washingtonian, Frankie loved the Washington Football Team - formerly known as the Redskins. He enjoyed fishing and eating whatever his Mother cooked on his numerous visits to Saluda. Frankie had an awesome sense of humor and enjoyed making his family and friends laugh. He enjoyed music, especially, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and Al Green.
