Frank Verno, Jr. was born to his parents Frank & Caroline Verno, April 12, 1956 in Rochester, NY. His family made their home in Gates NY on Appian Way. Frank was a graduate of Gates Chili High School.
It was during a photography class in high school that Frank's life would be forever changed. It was here at the age of 16 that he met the love of his life Susan Hilt. The two were married at the age of 20 and have been in love ever since.
Frank was devoted to his family. There were five very happy days in his life, the first was his marriage to Susan, the next two were his daughters, Lisa & Kara's wedding day and finally the two days that his grandkids were born. The grandkids called him grandpa nugget because once or twice a week he would just show up at the house with McDonald's Happy Meals.
He enjoyed spending times at the casinos, watching Survivor & Big Brother on TV and listening to the Beatles, Bruno Mars and 70's music.
Frank had a very easy going personality, very little would rattle him. He will be remembered by those who loved him as: reliable, even tempered, patient, good listener, hardworking, a good man and that he truly enjoyed the simple things in life. He wil be missed by all who knew and loved him.
