    Frank Thomas Morello was born in Philadelphia on June 25, 1929, the oldest of three children to Antonio and Jenny. During the Korean War he was drafted into the Armed Forces but prior to being deployed sustained an injury that mercifully kept him stateside. A few years later he met and married Nina Cavallaro and together they moved into a new townhome on Algard Street in Northeast Philadelphia, where they would live for over 40 years. Frank worked for the naval shipyard and various government contractors in Philadelphia, retiring in the early 1990s to spend more time with his family. In 2005, Frank and Nina moved to their final destination: Naples, Florida, where they could be closer to their children and grandchildren.

    Frank was preceded in death by his daughter Jenifer Ann, his sister Marie, and Nina, his beloved wife of nearly 60 years, whose loss he never stopped grieving. He is survived by a brother, Salvatore (Chris); a son, Thomas (Denise); ten grandchildren: Thomas, Michael, Brianna, Matthew, Josiah, Daniel, Eva, Monica, Samuel, and Christina; and three great-grandchildren: Esther, Samson, and Hannah.

    Frank, or “Poppy”, will be greatly missed by those who knew him. Though gruff and wry on the outside, he was a devoted and loving grandfather who loved spending time with his grandkids and was always visibly proud of them. Poppy was always up for a game of cards, dominoes, or bocce, or just a simple walk to a nearby park. He possessed a vast knowledge of actors and actresses in all genres from the Golden Era of Hollywood and was particularly fond of westerns. He leaves behind many happy and fond memories. Poppy will always have a place in our hearts and his passing leaves a void that will be felt for a long time.
