Also surviving are six grandchildren, Tara, Desiree, Kaylin, Harlie, Kyle, Frankie: five great-grandchildren and a sister, Rose Fisher of Lancaster. He was preceded in death by four sisters and one brother.

The family would like to thank the staff, especially the Orange Team, of Hospice & Community Care for the excellent care that was given during Frank’s illness.

Family and friends will be received on Monday, December 27, 2021 from 10-11AM at Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 441 N.

Condolences to the Family

Carla, Dave, Clarissa and Kendall,  I was sorry to read about your Dad’s passing. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen him and all of you but I remember coming down to your house in Conestoga to play with Clarissa and he used to kid around with all of us.  My sympathies to you all.

Carla and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your father Frank’s passing.  Be assured that this newest Angel was welcomed with open arms, into his heavenly home.  
Take care of each other.  Your Dad will always be with you if you hold him in your heart.

Carla, David, Clarissa, and Kendall, I was saddened to hear of your dads passing. He was a longtime friend of my dads (Chet Platt) and the rest of our family. I have many fond memories of visiting your house when you lived near Highville (I think that is where it was). I ran into your dad several times over the past 20 years and it was always fun to talk of the old days. I will always remember his smiling face and fun personality. I’m sure him and my dad are up to their usual “heavenly” hyjinks and making Heaven a little more funnier.

Sorry for your loss.
