Frank S. Falaschi

Frank S. Falaschi, age 89, passed away Friday November 9, 2012, at his residence.  Frank was born in Racine on November 8, 1923, son of the late Alfred and Josephine (nee: Gallo) Falaschi.

Frank was employed with Western publishing for forty-three years until his retirement in 1986.  He was a member of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.  A man short in stature, but big in heart, Frank loved to sing and dance with Bernie, and go golfing, hunting and fishing with his sons, family and friends. He will be dearly missed.
