Obituary of Frank Ferdinand Paoleschi

Frank Paoleschi, 79, of DeLand, Florida passed away on January 31, 2020. Frank was a loving father (and father in law), brother, uncle, brother in law and friend to all he knew. Frank was born in 1940 in Union City, New Jersey. In 1946, his parents (Ferdinand and Josephine) and sister (Carole) moved from New Jersey to San Bernardino, California and then returned to North Bergen, New Jersey in 1952. Frank graduated from Union Hill high school and then joined the Army and was stationed at Fort Totten, NJ where he met his beautiful wife Johanna Paoleschi. Frank and Johanna married in October 1966 and lived in Bogota, New Jersey then moved to Teaneck, New Jersey where Audra (their only child) was born. They moved to Lincroft, New Jersey in 1978. Frank was an entrepreneur and opened Garden State Reprographics in Middlesex and then owned and operated a restaurant in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. Frank spent the rest of his career in the car business until he retired in 2004. As a family they traveled annually to New Smyrna Beach as Frank’s parents were snowbirds. Frank’s in laws (Mike and Margie) also spent a lot of time in Florida as well. During one of their visits Frank and Johanna found a home they both loved in (Delightful) DeLand. They purchased the home in 1992 and moved to Florida in 1997. Frank was predeceased by his beautiful wife Johnanna Paoleschi (2003) and his parents Josephine (1985) and Ferdinand (1993).
