Born January 12, 1950

Passed March 5, 2022

Frank passed away unexpectedly Saturday March 5, 2022.

Born in Tampa, graduated Hillsborough High School, attended The University of Florida for a short time (always a dedicated Gator fan), transferred to The University of South Florida where he was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and earned a bachelor’s degree.

He spent decades in the jewelry business where he made and remained close to many of his dearest friends. He was quite a character with a unique sense of humor.

Survived by wife Mary, son, Anthony, daughter, Bethanie Rivera, grandchildren, Adriano Rosales, Nathaniel Rivera, Ioannis Rosales, and Francesca Rosales.

Our family has elected not to have a service choosing instead to celebrate Frank’s personality & humor privately.

In lieu of a service and because so many are in need, we encourage you to donate to your favorite charity in his memory. His favorites Autism Speaks and The Humane Society.

We are deeply toughed and grateful to all his friends, extended family and work families for your kind thoughts and prayers, they have meant a great deal to us.

Thank You!

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
