The family of Frank Tricoli announces with deep sadness his sudden and unexpected passing on Tuesday, January 17, 2023. Born and raised in Hoboken, he resided in Bayonne before relocating to Bayville several years ago.
Frank was employed as a truck driver with the Ryder Trucking Company in Carteret, a position held for over 35 years. With a driven desire to succeed in life, he modeled an outstanding work ethic which led him to succeed at a variety of self-taught skills including building homes and fixing cars. He had a talent for cooking and baking, and was especially known for his famous chicken cutlets which were always sure to be a hit!
Frank enjoyed life's simple pleasures such as fishing in his leisure time and watching his favorite TV programs, "Yellowstone" and "Breaking Bad". He was the ultimate jokester and a goofball at heart who never failed to make you laugh. Nothing brought Frank greater pride and joy than spending time with his family. He was a fiercely devoted father, grandfather, and protector whose love was unconditional and unwavering. He will be warmly remembered as a gentle soul as he always put others above himself through his selfless acts of kindness.
Frank will live on in the hearts of all who were privileged to know him.
Left to cherish his memory are his children, Valerie Ann, Gabriella Guzzi, Anna Maria Tricoli, and John Tricoli (Casey), his adored grandchildren, Tyler Martinez, Giana Martinez, Noah John Laul, Kara Tricoli, Arianna Fish-Tricoli, Bryce Tricoli, and Hayes Tricoli; sisters, Maureen Tricoli, Michele M. Tricoli, Christine V., and Wendy J. Tricoli-Mims (Daryl)
Relatives and friends are invited to attend visiting hours at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home, 20 E. 22nd St. on Sunday, January 22, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Cremation will be private.
