Most adored Nonno of Lisa and Dave Kowalyk, Julie and Billy Hall, Nicole Settimi, and Cathleen and Aaron Michon. Proud and cherished Nonno Frank of Anthony, Dylan, Sabrina, and Elena. Frank was born November 19, 1925 to Domenico and Assunta Settimi in Montefortino, Ascoli Piceno, Italy. Frank was oldest of 8 children; dear brother of Mario (deceased) and Maria Settimi, Giuseppe (deceased) and Rita Settimi (Italy), Laurina and Gino (deceased) Latini (Italy), Maria and Emilio (deceased) Cesarini, Pierina and Valentino (deceased) Pascucci, Ruggiero and Annie Settimi, Ottavio and Vincenza Settimi.

In 1950, Frank began his career with Steetley Industries, whilst building his family with Adelia and raising their adored children, Ann Marie and Perry.

We are blessed to have learned so many valuable lessons from Frank during his 93 years of life including how to pick apples the right way, to always wear a wide-brimmed hat in the sun, that dull forks are useless, to only eat corn if it’s fresh, to reuse your bread bags, and most of all to take good care of each other. We remember Frank as an independent, well-put together, warrior, who took his greatest pride in his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. We take comfort in knowing (as assured by his great granddaughter, Sabrina), that, although we cannot give him hugs and kisses now, Jesus will do it for us. Frank will be missed and forever loved by all those who had the pleasure to know him.
