In addition, he leaves behind very special and treasured nieces and nephews, Rebecca DiSciacca and her husband Kevin Johnson of Hartford, and Jack DiSciacca and his fiancée Renee Sher of Redwood City, CA. He loved them unconditionally. Frank grew up in West Greenwich, RI. He obtained his pilot’s license at 17.
