Messages of Condolence

  1. We are so sad to hear about Mr. Pavone’s passing, but surely Mrs. P was waiting for him! We hope you’ll find solace in knowing they are together again.

  2. Frank was a pleasure to be with, a kind gentleman that never failed to lift spirits and offer encouragement. Though we grieve his passing his presence in spirit and memories will surely be with us in our hearts for ever.

  3. Reality set in when I saw Frank’s photograph in the obituary. What a great picture of a great guy – my best friend. We talked daily for the past few years. I will miss those conversations. Most of all I will miss the hours we spent every week. Memories of those fun times will always bring me joy.
    I know he is where he wanted to be – he is safely home. And, while we are sad, he is rejoicing. Good job Frank – you finished the race!

  4. A Wonderfully Blessed Gentleman.
    So kind and caring in life and now
    into the next life again with Joyce!
    Knowing they are now together in
    God’s hands I hope will bring you
    Peace in your heart! ❤❤

  5. Dear Uncle Frank, I know your with Aunt Joyce…so you are happy and content.
    I enjoyed working together with you when I was in college, I have a lot of fond memories…
    To Brad, Brent Becky & Blythe my heartfelt condolences to all of you. I know it’s been quite awhile since we seen each other but you are all in my thoughts.
    God Bless

  6. I will miss my neighbor very much! Such a kind man, always ready to lend a hand or an ear, he was my favorite neighbor !!! We chatted many times about many thing’s . RIP my friend, I know Joyce was waiting for you !

  7. Dear Ones, The news of your dear Dad’s passing is so bittersweet, as we realize he is now Home, in Eternity with His Lord and his beloved Joyce whom he has missed so much. Yet, for you and all who had the distinct privilege to have had Frank’s love and devotion as a Dad and good friend over all the years, he will be very missed. This man was truly “one in a million”, a legend, a genuine gift, an exemplar “man of Faith” whose firm foundation was in the Lord and his treasured Catholic Faith.
    Always ready to share a laugh, and never afraid to laugh at himself, Frank was both entertaining and eager to be entertained. Frank possessed poise and polish, an ideal gentleman, and a gentle man.
    To think of Joyce, you thought of Frank, and vice versa. What a team! What Soul mates! God blessed their marriage, and now, for sure, rewards them with Life Eternal in the Perfect Joy of their Heavenly Home.
    God bless each of you with lasting, tender memories which will bring you peace and acceptance and smiles.
    All our love,
    Gary & Jayne Thompson

  8. Mr. Pavone was such a good person, and a true pleasure to get to know over the last year and a half. Anytime spent with him he was sharing his music, or talking about his family and grandchildren. He had such a kind heart and I will never forget him. I will keep his dear friends and family in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

  9. What can we say about Frank …., the best…We really enjoyed the lunches we spent together downtown talking old times, the parties, the memories. A great phone companion for Dave… always lifted his spirits…. Will miss your positive attitude and love for your family. Say hi to Joyce. Love Kathie and Dave Srodek

  10. Uncle Frank was an amazing man, dad, grandpa and godfather. My fondest memory was him taking very special care of my beloved stuff animal when he cleaned him when he was at my parents house in the late 80s. I loved meeting for Chinese and Italian food family dinner dates. He was so happy, smiley, and kind. You will be missed here, but am so happy you will get to be with Joyce again.
    We love you
    Lindsay, Ryan, Maura, and Stan
