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.

Memories Timeline


  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,

    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.
    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

  4. CandleImageI love you soo much. U are one of my favorite uncles and I believe you knew that! . I will miss u soooo much. May u rip. Enjoy your time w Nanny and Pops . Until we meet again ????????????????

  5. CandleImageSleep in Peace my dear sweet cousin. You are smart, funny, talented and have a beautiful soul. You will be missed.????????

  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.

    • Oh Patti, I am so heartbroken over this, I’m sure you understand. Too much death is happening in many families these days. It’s hard to handle such sadness, especially when it’s in your own family. I know now why you got back to me in messenger when you did. I am truly so sorry, I didn’t know at that time because I wasn’t informed. Now that I know can understand how you felt. I only wish I could HUG you and try to comfort you under these circumstances. Dealing with such a loss is not easy. It’s If there’s anything I can do let me know. Believe me, it’s going on twelve years now since I lost my best friend, love, soul mate and companion. I still cry thinking about him as if it happened yesterday. The love in your heart and all those great memories never go away. They stay with you forever. GOD bless and take care. I’m sure he’s in good hands. Vic and Frank will take good care of him. Vic is probably singing with that God given voice, while Frank is playing the drums and Butch/Frank Jr is playing the piano in heaven. GOD is watching and listening to their music with a big smile. All of you will always be in my daily thoughts. GOD Bless!

  8. CandleImageWhen I heard about Butchs’ passing from Patti, I wasn’t sure if I heard it right or had the wrong person on my messenger. Many people have similar names, however, I inquired about what I heard to Micheal and found the information was true and very real. I can’t believe he’s gone. He’s was so loved by everyone. Remembering how well he played the piano, made awesome spaghetti, and made a beautiful ring for me when Vic and I would visit his home in Georgia when Vic and I were managing Manufactured Home Community in Lithia Springs GA. Vic called him Butchie, he was so talented and always hospitable, so much fun to be with. A good and decent man he was. I can’t believe he’s gone. It’s December 2022 and I’m just hearing about this now. My whole hearted condolences reach out to everyone in the family, his friends and anyone who knew him. I read all your kind words and couldn’t stop crying. The tears blinded my eyes from reading but managed to to reach such beautiful words and giving the love and respect he so deserved. Now he’s gone from this world but will always be in our hearts and mind. He was special to all of us. When Vic passed, I was at a loss and devastated and now again after Vic, then his brother Frank and now Butch. I will love you all as well as our Loss forever. RIP Frank in heaven to be with family and friends who passed. We’ll all be in heaven one day. Lord, hear my prayer that you will take good care of our loved ones and unite them in heaven with you by their side. GOD be with you until eternity. ????????????????????⚱????????????
