AUSTINTOWN There will be a memorial Mass at noon on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, at St. Charles Borromeo Church in Boardman for Frank T. Minenok Jr., 64, who passed away Wednesday morning, Nov. 13, at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Frank was born Sept. 10, 1949, in Youngstown, the son of Frank T. Sr. and Florence (Salvatore) Minenok.
He was a retired Youngstown City Police Officer, most recently worked for Falcon Transport Company and was the owner/operator of Franks Lawn and Landscaping Company. Frank courageously served his country with the U.S. Navy.
Frank will always be loved and remembered by his parents of Youngstown; his wife, the former Carole Saculla, whom he married Nov. 1, 1985; daughter, Carrie Minenok of Little Hocking; son, Frank T. Minenok III of Austintown; six siblings, Judith (David) Brownstein of Buffalo, N.Y., Joan Yanchick of New Middletown, Jane Minenok of Austintown, Joy Minenok of Canfield, Russell (Deborah) Minenok of Boardman and Patrick (Roberta) Minenok of New Castle, Pa.; mother-in-law, Frances Saculla of Canfield; two brothers-in-law, Bill (Cindy) Saculla of Florida and A.J. (Cheryl) Saculla of Poland; a sister-in-law, Melissa (Donald) Rich of Canfield; 23 loving nieces and nephews; and 11 great-nieces and nephews, who adored him and he loved as if they were his own.
Frank was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Frank Saculla and brother-in-law John Yanchick.
Frank was a lover of music, books, long car rides, and the water. These enjoyments were only magnified when shared with his family, his wife, Carole Baby, daughter Bear, son Cheech, and his dogs, Roxy, Midnight and Blue Max. His special names for those closest to him, just emphasized their endearment to him.
Friends may call on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, from 10 a.m. to noon at St. Charles Church prior to the Mass.
The Rossi Brothers and Lellio Funeral Home, 4442 South Ave. in Boardman has been bestowed the honor and privilege of handling the arrangements for Frank.
