Frankie was a remarkable young man.
St. Bede the Venerable Grade School honored Frankie with the "Green and Gold Award," for Outstanding Sportsmanship and Leadership, and an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award signed by the President of the United States. In junior year at Holy Ghost Prep, he was given an award, "Determination in the Face of Difficulty" and was cited as a Courageous Athlete. In senior year, he received the Dr. Provan Award for Leadership. Mostly though, Frankie was a person of heart. He loved his family.
Graduating from Fairfield University, Frankie was chosen to deliver the Valedictory Address at graduation exercises in Connecticut. Frankie was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Sigma Nu, the National Jesuit Honor Society. He was captain of the crew team and committed to community service. He served as Eucharistic Minister.
He understood that God had blessed him richly and that it was his privilege and responsibility to share God's love. In the Valedictory Address that Frankie had prepared to deliver this weekend, he intended to say , "We must...Have compassion or heart for others, and ...compliment this with action by enthusiastically participating in the world's events....Now is our opportunity to live out our education, promote positive change and act in the world to make it a better place."
Recalling the retreats he had participated in with his father at Malvern, Frankie concluded his Valedictory Address by sharing the prayer that brings to a close every Malvern retreat: "Prosit," a Latin word praising God that means, "May it be for your benefit."
