Obituary

Obituary for Frank Andreoli Jr.

Frank was born July 5th, 1935 in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was the fifth of Frank and Divina (Fortino) Andreoli’s nine children. He graduated from Mary D. Bradford Senior High school in June of 1954. Shortly after graduation Frank enlisted in the US Army from where he attended West Point, and was stationed in Germany until his discharge in 1957. Upon returning home Frank left Wisconsin with his best friend Steven Riva and drove to California where he began working for the Union Bank Loan Department.

It was while in Southern California that he met Justine “Teena” Zawisa who would forever change his life. They fell in love and were married October 24th 1964 in Detroit, Michigan, Teena’s home town. They returned to Los Angeles, California where they began their 55 year journey of married life filled with four beloved children: Lisa Marie, Steven Anthony, Nicole Justine, and Dominique Suzette.

During his life Frank had been a soldier, a banker, TV technician, real-estate agent, and builder, but didn’t measure his success by these roles. Frank always considered his most important vocations to be father and husband. He was humble and understood he was not perfect, but worked every day to be better than the day before.

Fishing was one of his lifelong passions. He learned to fish as a child and became so good at it that his mother told him that he would have to clean his own fish if he brought any more home as she’d had enough. What he enjoyed most about fishing were quiet hours passed with his closest friends and family. It connected him to his brothers as they were growing up along Lake Michigan and to his family and friends throughout his adult life. He had varying levels of success passing this passion down to his children and later to his ultimate joy in life --his grandchildren.

The best part of his life was yet to come and began with the birth of his first grandchild, Nicholas Vasconi. His love for being a grandfather continued to grow with each additional grandchild: Olivia McKelvey, Aidan Vasconi, Evan McKelvey, Trevor Lyndon, Maria Vasconi, Austen Andreoli, Owen McKelvey, Adam Lyndon, and finally Elyse Vasconi. These were the treasures closest to his heart. Nothing was more important to him than spending time with his grandchildren and watching them spend time with each other.



Frank’s special gifts from God were his sense of humor; his refusal to see anything less than the absolute best in everyone; and his ability to instill in his children an understanding of the joy and importance of family. We would be missing something important if we failed to celebrate the love that he brought to all of us who were so blessed to share this life with him.

Memorial Contributions may be made to the Capuchin Fathers of Detroit at 1820 Mt Elliott St, Detroit, MI 48207.
