“My sentiments go out to the Lisi and Fuellhart families for their loss. Frank (Liberace) and I went to St. Pats and UHS together and many times rode the bus down town to get to UHS. We also had many a beer at the Hilltop, Zanzabar, Mickeys' and the Modena Bar and Grill. We had a lot of good times together. RIP Frank.”

“My sympathy to the Lisi family at this sad time. I graduated with Vince from high school. Frank worked with my cousin, John Oberman on the bus for the children with special needs. John always spoke very highly of Frank. May you always have great memories to fill your hearts in the days ahead. ”
