Obituary of Francis Andrew Densevich

Frank A. Densevich was born on July 7, 1938 in Atlantic City, NJ and died March 15, 2023.

Raised in Altoona, he attended Altoona Catholic High School where he played football and made life-long friends. Enrolled in the US Army. In 1960, he married Judy A. Notari and made a home in Staten Island, NY. After a few short years they moved to Vineland, NJ and raised their children.

Frank was the manager of Kress department stores and later worked in adult education. While in Vineland he was an active member of the Saint Isadore's Catholic Church. He was a member of the Vineland Jaycees, an elected member of the Vineland City Council and a fourth degree Knight.

Frank enjoyed being a state swimming referee and attending all of his daughters' events. He and Judy spent numerous hours volunteering. As an active member of the Penn State South Jersey Shore Club, they would raise money for various scholarships to the Penn State University.

Upon retirement, he and Judy moved to Bellefonte, PA and became avid PSU season ticket holders for many different sports. He joined the St. John's Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus and was a member of Bellefonte planning board. He also volunteered at the Penn State All Sports Museum. He volunteered many hours to fundraisers and was especially loyal to the "soup and salad" fundraiser that has now been named after his wife, Judy. He was an avid and active member of the NRA. Frank believed in giving back to his community quietly and without acknowledgment. He lived his life as a loyal servant to God and church and loved his family deeply, loved his friends and loved this life.

He is survived by his daughters, Kim (Dan) Lessard, Dana Densevich; his grandchildren, Devin Lessard, Kelsey Lessard and Francis Mulligan; his sister, Anne Thompson; brother, John (Carol) Densevich; sister-in-law, Dorothy Densevich and many nieces, nephews, and godchildren.
