Obituary of Frank Eugene Danese

Please share a memory of Frank to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Frank E. Danese, 66

Frank was born on July 13, 1955 in Orange, NJ to the late Mr. Louis and Christina Danese. Frank was a Sheetmetal worker and an amazing Craftsman. He had true hands of GOLD. 

A Memorial Mass will be held on Friday, September 3, 2021 at 10AM at Our lady Of Lourdes Church, 1 Eagle Rock Avenue, West Orange, NJ 07052.

Frank was a devoted Catholic and a member of The Knights of Columbus at Our Lady a Lourdes Church in West Orange, NJ. His most important and greatest accomplishment was the love he shared with his family.  

He is survived by his beloved wife Debbi D’aloia Danese of over 43 years; his children Frank Jr. and Zlata Danese, Erica and Michael Companion, and Ashley and JoJo Santino. He was blessed with six beautiful grandchildren to shine his light down upon: Nico John, Lia Rosa, Avery Ryan, Sophia Rose, Mason Anthony, and Josie Rain. They all were his pride and joy. 

He also left behind his sisters MaryLynn and her husband Eddie Koch and Diana with her late husband Alan Cohen. Predeceased by his father-in-law and mother-in-law John Sr. and Rose D’aloia.  Also, leaving behind his brothers-in-law John D’aloia Jr. and partner Dorthey, Anthony D’aloia and wife Vison, and his sister-in-law Anna with her late husband Blue Lovett. Followed by several loving nieces, a nephew, and numerus good friends. That were always there for him. 

We can’t name all his qualities, but his quick wit and sense humor were just a few. He was the life of the party, Nico’s biggest fan, and always put a smile on someone’s face, even on their worst days. He was a good listener, a shoulder to lean on, and a voice of reason even though he never followed his own advice. He had a big heart, would give you the shirt off his back, and always willing to lean a helping hand. If you ever had the pleasure to meet Frank, you were the lucky one. 

He will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him and life will never be the same without him.
