I did not know your brother, but I always saw him years ago at Towne Square Restaurant in Beaver. I’m very sorry that I never stopped to say “hello”. He always had a friendly face. You and your family have my sincerest sympathies. I am so sorry for your loss.

I first met Frank through our union local. He and I became walking buddies in the morning around the cemetery in Beaver. Later on we played racquetball at the Y in Chippewa on Monday nights. Afterwards it was to Sals for some food and libations. Always pleasant and cheerful , he will be missed.

We would like to send our deepest sympathies on hearing about the passing of Francis. Through many years, Francis stayed connected to the Selia family in Hahntown. We remember clearly the visits we had to "Aunt Mary's in Monaca" for the backyard picnics and other adventures. We also remember the summer stays of Francis and siblings in Hahntown and the back porch visits at Uncle Mike's and Aunt Martha's, Uncle Joe's and Aunt Edna's. Plus the exploits of the Sabella and Selia cousins. Because of Covid quarantine, we are not able to visit but we want you to know that we mourn the loss of Francis as we remember his friendliness and commitment to the larger family. Jerry and Jim Selia
