Words are inadequate to express the emptiness we feel at the loss of our Uncle Frank. He was special in every way and will be greatly missed. We have nothing but great memories of our times together . I don’t think anyone who met him would not be impressed by his character and devotion to family. He was the real deal in every way. Not only was he a great uncle but also a great role model. Whenever I spoke to Uncle Frank he always seemed to have just the right words for every situation and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed help.He was just fun to be around and the kind of dad everyone wished they had.We know Uncle Frank is with The Lord and is free from pain. We will all be together again one day for a great family reunion. Our prayers go out to our Aunt Phyllis and all our family during this difficult time. I remember what Uncle a Frank would always say when we were saying goodbye “Take er easy.” He will always be in our hearts and his spirit will live on. With all our love, Rich and Carmella Circell,Christine Aglira, and Frank and Tara Marullo. You were special to us all and dearly loved.
My Uncle June had a gentle, generous, compassionate spirit, with a heart as big as a Lancaster County cornfield. He was a friend to everyone he met, whether it be someone he knew, or a passer by at the grocery store. Making people feel loved and special were only a few of his many enduring virtues. He always had a smile and a kind word or a story to share. He loved his children and his grandchildren, more than life itself. The joy they brought him, and the pride he held for them was immeasurable. My Aunt Phyll was the love of his life. Their hearts and their lives were truly joined as one, in their love and commitment to each other. Uncle June never gave up through his illness. He fought through his pain valiantly, never complaining, never feeling sorry for himself. He lived his life to the fullest right up to the near end. My aunt and cousins (his children), and his grandchildren held a constant vigil at his bedside. They would reminisce about all the good times they’d shared, they would read to him, hold his hand in theirs, comforting him physically and emotionally with their loving presence. One of the last things I tearfully whispered to my uncle was, “Even when we are no longer together, you will always be with me”. Each time I buy a dozen eggs or corn on the cob, when I hear a polka or Bobby Vinton on the radio, each and every day I will think of him. Each time I lend a hand to a person in need, or share a smile or a kind word with another human being, it will be because my beloved Uncle June is with me.
So beautifully said Anita. Uncle June and Aunt Phyllis were most kind to me and allowed me to spend summers with them after dad passed on. I know it’s been over a year but I didn’t know. My thoughts and love to everyone.

We were deeply saddened by the passing of PopPop. We feel blessed by the short time we knew this endearing grandpa. He was a very talented wood worker and tool/leather maker. His carvings and work was beyond perfect and truly amazing. We loved hearing his experiences in the army and how he met his wife MomMom (Phyllis). He was salt of the earth and such a good person. We will miss seeing you PopPop when visiting Josh, Mickey and Emma in PA. You were the best and we loved you. Chris and Ron
