Francis J. “Frank” Cerone, age 68, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at his home. He was born on January 2, 1952 in Albany, NY to the late Vito and Gladys (Dillenbeck) Cerone.
Following his graduation from Colonie High School, Frank joined the United States Marine Corps. After his return from the military, Frank held various jobs, working in produce, driving trucks and most recently enjoying retirement with his family.
Frank was an all-American man. He loved his country, he loved sports, and he adored his family. Whether he was rooting for the Chicago Bulls or Pittsburgh Steelers, there was always a sports game on the television. During his free time, he enjoyed golfing with friends. He also shared his love of baseball with his family, having coached his son’s little league team in Burnt Hills, and attending his grandchildren’s softball games.
Frank is survived by his loving children Hilary (Rich Wescott) Cerone, Katie (George) Riley, and Nicholas (Carley) Cerone; dear grandchildren Kaydence, Skye, Hailee and Kynsleigh and his former wife Julie Cerone. Frank will also be missed by many extended family members and friends.
Along with his parents, Frank is predeceased by his sisters Madeline Orlando and Donna Williams.
