He leaves his pain behind but also the many who love him. A hard-working man who took care of his family. Resting deservedly now in peace in the arms of God. My condolences to the family.
So sorry for your loss.
Sending our deepest sympathy to the entire family. His father helped at Mahoning Valley Grange, Wilmington Grange & New Bedford Grange when we worked on getting toll calling to New Castle. A great family.
I will miss him dearly. I always enjoyed our talks. Rest in Peace Dad.
Dear Janice, So very sorry for your loss. Words can not express what the heart truly feels with such a loss. But I want you to remember God’s Word that tells us when we marry the two become one, and although the death of the body separates us physically but what God has joined by the Spirit to become one can never be taken from us who commit ourselves to each other before Jesus Christ. He’s as much a part of you now as he ever was and always will be. We keep you and yours close in our prayers during this time. Psalm 63:7-8. God Bless you and yours. Love, Connie and John Frochio.
