Frank was born September 8, 1952 in Buffalo, New York the son of the late Frank Anthony and Martha (Panzarella) Luongo. On May 21, 1976 he married the former Debby Householder and they shared 42 years together.
Frank was a member of The Chapel and had been employed by Whirlpool Corporation, retiring after 31 years as the Director of Treasury Analysis. He was past treasurer of the Whirlpool Foundation, a founding member and treasurer of the Lakeshore Excellence Foundation. He volunteered for Habitat for Humanity. He lead Financial Peace University classes and loved helping people achieve financial independence.
Frank loved the Lord and desired to do His will, above all else. His faith was evident in all that he did, and he enjoyed sharing it. Next to the Lord, Frank’s greatest love was his wife, Debby, his children, and his grandchildren. His love for his grandchildren was obvious to all who knew them- his nephew said, “I haven’t seen many people be so full of joy as Uncle Frank was when he had a baby or toddler to hold.” His grandchildren would greet him with squeals of delight and often, the “Grandpa Cheer”.
Frank enjoyed golfing and shooting with his friends and was an accomplished woodworker. In short, Frank treasured his family and friends and considered them the greatest blessing in his life. There is no doubt in the minds of those who know and loved Frank that the Lord greeted him with the words “Well done My good and faithful servant”.
Survivors include his wife, Debby; five children: Angela (Jim Klausson) Luongo, Eric (Christine) Luongo, Michael Luongo, Rachel (Mathew) White, and Matthew (Michelle) Luongo; ten grandchildren; two brothers: Ed (Debbie) Luongo and David (Mary) Luongo; and a sister: Kathy (Bill) Thomas.
Frank was also preceded in death by an infant grandson – Isaac Shidler.
