Frank Joseph Perrone Jr., 78, passed away peacefully in his sleep on January 28th, 2022 at his residence in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

Frank was born on November 1st, 1943 in Yonkers, New York. Frank was in the commercial refrigeration business where he loved serving his community and building relationships. Early in life, Frank brought three beautiful daughters into the world and almost two decades later, two sons followed. After 41 years being self-employed, he kept busy driving school busses until he moved to Colorado where he served as an Ambulance Driver with South Fork Fire Rescue until his health declined and he moved back home.

Frank “Pop” was known as a kind and gentle man who was always working and always on the move. He made lifelong friends and was an amazing dad, brother, uncle, and friend. He was loved so much and could always find the right words to make you smile.

He is survived by his three daughters Patti Ann Perrone-Mazza, and Frankie Ann Perrone, Barbara Ann Perrone-McCluskey (Michael); his two sons Michael Perrone and Anthony Perrone; his grandchildren William Kelly, John Mazza, Maggie McCluskey, Nova Bell and step-grandsons Duke and Rowdy Hannah; his sister Patti Perrone-Alterio and brother Joseph Perrone and many nieces and nephews.

Frank is predeceased by his parents, Frank & Angie Perrone.

  1. CandleImageI love you Dad… May your eternal light shine on all of us, and may you rest in peace forever in gods arms! Say hi to Nanny and pups and mommy for me! I love you

  2. CandleImageHey Dad,
    I wanted to share one of the greatest complements you and i have ever received together.
    The morning you passed just so happened to be my Boss “Bill Range” 38th Birthday, same age as me. He had called to let me know not to worry about work and to just take care of Business. Now this is the guy I’ve always told you about and how working for him reminds me of working for you. We go above and beyond to get the job done rite every time. Simply, exceeding expectations.

    About an hour later I received a text message from Bill Stating,

    “Michael,
    You are one of the special ones…consumed with passion but a kind heart. One of the hardest working people that I have ever met. You have all the qualities that make a great person inside and out, those that are lucky enough to call you a friend are better people just because of your unbelievable kind and caring nature. Hold you head high my friend these are all things that were ingrained in you at a young age. Your father had to be a hell of a guy to raise you the way he did.

    I know I told you all this on the phone, but I wanted to put it into writing so if you are ever having a bad day and don’t want to talk to anyone you can pull this up and read it.”

    …at that moment i realized you will forever be immortalized.
    Dad,
    I wanted to share this with you because it all stared with you. Your reflection shines brighter than a glistening diamond.

    Thank you so much for being such a great teacher to not only Anthony and I but to each and every one of our friends and family.

    I Love and Miss you so much!

    Your son,
    Michael Anthony Perrone

  3. Dad
    When Anthony called me the morning you passed I thought he was calling to say hi but that is surely not the way it went to say I was shocked I just screamed I still can’t believe it. You where doing do good. You called me the night before but I missed the call a part of me wish I didn’t.but the other part of me is glad because now I have you voice forever. I will miss your laugh your smile and most of all your sense of humor. Loving you forever
    Your youngest daughter
    Barbara

  6. CandleImageGod created us to live with knowing one day when He decides, we will cease to exist to live on this earth. Because He created us to live, He gives us an opportunity to keep living forever eternally in Heaven with Him. Butch keep telling those funny stories and keep an eye on your family. D

  7. My Dear Brother,
    Today I had to say goodbye to you. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. My heart is broken. I can’t believe my life without you. All I want to do is cry in disbelief. I love you so much. Your sister Patti.
