W. Frank Molinari

March 24, 1927 — July 24, 2021

W. Frank Molinari, 94, of Northampton, died at home on July 24, 2021. He was born in Plainfield, NJ on March 24, 1927; son of the late Esterino and Teresa (Lionetti) Molinari. Frank is survived by his devoted wife, Patricia (DeAngelis) Molinari. They shared 67 wonderful years of marriage together.

Frank will be lovingly remembered as an easygoing, kind and generous man with a delightful sense of humor. He enjoyed golfing and fishing in his free time. Frank was always a volunteer to eat Patricias baking and the two traveled to their home in Jekyll Island, GA for the winter every year. Frank received the most joy in his life by spending time with his family; especially his grandchildren who he loved dearly.

Frank proudly served in the US Navy during WWII in the Pacific Theatre. He retired from Merck & Co. where he worked in the Quality Control Dept.

Frank will be profoundly missed by his wife, Patricia; children: Francis Molinari (Cheryl Ann); Mark Molinari; Milissa Burke (Paul); his brother, Esterino Molinari; sister, Rose Marie Mastroianni; nine grandchildren; and five great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his brothers: George, Charles, and Santos.
