Yo Frankies here!

Frank William Anfuso or also known as, “Scatsy” “The Fuse” or “Frankie”, 77, of Bethlehem, passed away on March 8, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was the loving husband of 19 years to Karalee “Hink” (Hinkle) Anfuso.

Born on March 8, 1946, he was the son of the late Jennie (Shopek) and Frank Phillip Anfuso.

Frank was a master fabricator and an engine and chassis builder. He was also a former co-owner of Highway Auto Body in Bethlehem. He was the former president of the Bath Firehouse in the 90s. Frank was also a member of the West Side Republican Club of Bethlehem, the Bath Republican Association, and the United Racing Club.

Frankie had numerous enjoyments--- he had a special love for fishing, especially on the Salmon River with his son-in-law. His enjoyments included racing, one of his favorite spots to race was at Williams Grove Speedway and he also enjoyed watching racing at Bridgeport Speedway. Franks enjoyments also included taking weekly casino trips, partying with his friends, and golfinghe got his first hole- in-one a few years ago at Willow Brook. Frank was a great dancer and loved the outdoors.

When it came to filters, Frank didnt have any especially when it came to sharing his wild stories with his daughters and grandchildren. He lived life to the fullest and nothing slowed him down.

In addition to his wife, Karalee, Frank will be dearly missed by his sister, Rosemary Anfuso-Koehler, of Bath; two daughters, Traci Anfuso and her husband, John Young, of Whitehall, and Sheri Anfuso and her husband, Eric Dunstan, of Whitehall; two granddaughters, Nicole Lee Nicholas and her husband, Christopher Fritzinger, of Whitehall and Skye Marie Dunstan, of Whitehall; great-grandchildren, Gianna June Anfuso, Dahlia June Fritzinger, and Stone Fuse Fritzinger, all of Whitehall. Frank will be dearly missed by his beloved doggie, “Peanut Marie Anfuso” who he read “Once Upon a Time” stories to every night.

He will also be lovingly remembered by his brother from another mother, Charlie Massey; the sons he never had, Sean and Sam Campbell; the racing son he never had, Dan the Man Massey; and his godson, Timothy William Hogue.

Franks family would like to give a special thank you to the Collins Family and the OBT---his home away from the shop, where he always had a great steak meal.

Franks family would also like to thank Dr. Jane Garnjost from Bushkill Practice Center or “personal specialist” as Frank would call her and a special thank you to Dr. Nikonj T. Patelfor his patience, compassion, and kindness. They would also like to thank the entire St. Lukes team.

He always said, “checking out is easy, staying alive is whats hard", and “when my time is up, wave the checkered flag, the race is over.”

A private family viewing will be held at the convenience of the family.

There will be a celebration of life at a later date, please contact the family for details.
