Frank Adamski was born in New Haven, Connecticut and was the second oldest son of Jan and Anna 'Rychlak' Adamczyk, who changed their surnames to Adamski before the family moved to Springfield, Massachusetts.
Frank attended local schools and was a star three sport athlete, - baseball, basketball and football with his name and performances regularly appearing in the local newspaper in Springfield. His mother maintained a large scrapbook of the newspaper articles documenting his sports accomplishments.
After graduating from school he went to work at a local clothing factory and helped support the family after the tragic death of his father, a drop forge worker, who died after a fall climbing the stairs returning home from a twelve hour work shift.
One afternoon in early August 1938, Frank went swimming at Congamond pond in Southwick, Massachusetts with a group of his friends. Unaccustomed to the area, and not realizing how shallow the dark water was, he dove in hitting a submerged rock fracturing the vertebrae in his neck. His friends pulled him from the water and left him lying on the shore as they ran for help.
He was hospitalized, but contracted pneumonia in a time prior to the development of penicillin treatments for bacterial infections, succumbing to the disease and died as his mother held him in her arms.
His funeral was held at Sacred Heart Church diagonally across the street from the family home on the corner of Chestnut Street and Patton Street.
Years later, his youngest brother, Anthony 'Tony', named his son after him.
Frank is sadly missed by his family and many friends. May he rest in heavenly peace.
