Frank beloved husband of Daria (née Bordoni), devoted father of Francesca Ricker (Justin) of Sudbury, Massachusetts and Whitney Arcaro of Manhattan, New York City, and doting popi of Kathryn and Campbell Ricker. Also survived by brothers Nicholas (Josephine) and Anthony and sisters Mary Ann and Linda; and brother-in-law of Pat and Marylyn Iavarone. Frank was wonderful uncle and godfather. And he truly was a special and loyal friend to so many — most of whom he has known and loved his entire life.
While Frank was the quintessential Philadelphia sports enthusiast, he always found a day at the races especially exciting.
Frank, though fully vaccinated, passed from complications due to COVID on January 14, 2022.
A celebration of Frank’s fulsome and spirited life is planned for the Spring. Donations in his memory and honor can be made to causes important to Frank and his family: St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital; The American Lung Association; or The St. Peter’s School of Society Hill, Philadelphia.
