Francis T. Kruzinski
December 4, 1964 - April 28, 2023
Francis T. Kruzinski, 58, passed away on HIS TERMS, comfortably and surrounded by love from his “Nisey”, children and grandchildren on April 28, 2023.
Throughout his life, Frank was called by many names, such as: “Shrek”/ “Spanky”, “Daddy”, “Papou”/ “Pop Pop”, “Frenchy” and “Polish Eagle, Ol’ 579”. Despite the title you gave him, each version of him contained one characteristic: his STRONG HEART.
Born and raised in Bridesburg, Frank put his strong heart to work by touching the lives of many- especially in Bridesburg, through his positions in the Bridesburg Town Watch and 15th District P.D.A.C. , and his own business FTK LAWN CARE. The many who truly knew Frank well, knew that if you asked his favorite memory in was sure to be a wild tale including his “Nisey”, and kids and took place in the deep dark backwoods of Forksville, PA. He had a special love for his grandbabies, pup “D” and the Philadelphia Eagles. Neighbors of the area may also recall Frank as the man from back in the day who bled over the radio stations and T.V.’s yelling things like “This is Ol’ Mud Puppy! 579! Bam, Bam, Bam!” when he’d indulge in his CB hobby, talking to his pals on Channel 27.
Francis is survived by his life partner and best friend- Denise Amoratis, children- Stephanie Rose (Daniel), Francis Thomas (Courtney), Lisa Marie (Todd) and Athena Lee, and grandchildren- Todd Jr., Ethan, Ashton, Nathan, Natalie, Maycol, Anastasia and Mackenzie. He will also be deeply missed by siblings- Ben, Mary and Joseph.
Frank’s family takes comfort in knowing that he is now reunited in eternal peace with his late parents- John Kruzinski and Rose O’Hara, late brothers- John “Hoagie Man” and Thomas, and late grandbaby, Angel.
Francis’ family invites all family, friends and those of the community to celebrate the life of “Big Frank” and his strong heart on May 9, 2023 from 9-11 AM at Slabinski’s Funeral Home. The children request that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to help in settling Frank’s final costs.
