Andrew Frank was born Andrew Ippolito, to an Italian immigrant family. His family's last name was changed to Frank, when they moved to New Castle, PA. Andy was versed in Italian and English. He was raised on a farm, where he learned hard work and determination. Upon reaching adulthood, he courted and married Irene Lasky. For a time, they moved to Detroit, MI to look for work. Soon they returned to New Castle, PA. Andy and Irene opened a restaurant called the 5 cent Lunch. Their only child was born in 1930: Thelma. When Irene developed tuberculosis in the early 1930's, the restaurant was closed by the Health Dept. Irene went to a tuberculosis sanitarium. Andy had to look for other work. During the depression years, he worked for WPA. Andy purchased land and built a little house for his family. He connected a pipe to a spring for running water; heat was provided by a coal stove. He was able to buy a truck and a bulldozer so he could work in landscaping and grading. He retired in 1970. Andy loved ponies and horses and raised them on his farm. He also raised bees and chickens. He owned a race horse named Noble Beauty and enjoyed the horse races at the track. He adopted orphaned racoons and took care of them until his death. Andy passed away from a massive heart attack.

Hobbies: hunting, horse racing, fishing, barbequeing, and planting a vegetable garden.
