In loving memory of our father, Frank Thomas Signorelli, who passed away on April 5, 2024 at age 88. He was the devoted husband of Rose Maria (Fabiano) Signorelli, served in the national guard and the armed forces with an honorable discharge in 1963, graduating from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1965. Frank worked as an industrial engineer for Western Electric / AT&T for 38 years. Frank also loved his garden, was an avid bocce player, and a skilled stained-glass craftsman.

Frank was born to Thomas and Clementine Signorelli (deceased) on August 31st, 1935 in Jersey City, New Jersey. Growing up, Frank loved to roller skate, draw, and enjoy beach weekends in Asbury Park with his family, including his brother, Joseph Signorelli and his sister, Diana Poulos.

He is survived by his loving wife Rose Maria, brother Joseph and sister Diana, daughters, Suzann (Paul) Brucato and Adrienne (Antonio) Robertiello, grandchildren, John and Maria Brucato and Marco, Olivia, and Lucia Robertiello, and his great granddaughter Gianna Brucato. He is deeply missed by all who knew him.

In cherished memory of Frank, a master of the craft, whose hands were skilled at fixing broken pipes, creaky doors, and cars, creating stained glass art, and tending gardens. With every tool in his arsenal and a heart full of generosity, he dedicated his life to the art of restoration, bringing light to darkened room and nurturing landscapes.

As we mourn the loss of our beloved handyman, let us honor his memory by embracing the spirit of repair and illuminating others’ lives, that defined his existence. Let us pick up the hammer and wrench, not just to mend leaky faucets and faulty wiring, but also to mend the brokenness that surrounds us—be it a broken fence, a flickering light, a neglected flowerbed, a broken spirit, or relationship. In the quiet moments of reflection, may we find inspiration in the legacy of service left behind by Frank. Let us remember the joy he found in rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty, tackling challenges with determination, grace, and generosity.

In his honor, let us come together to repair not only the physical aspects of our world but also the threads that connect us as human beings. Let us extend a helping hand to those in need, offering our skills and our hearts in service to others.

Though he may no longer walk among us, the echo of his hammer, the hum of his drill, the light from his designs, and the sound of flowing water upon his garden will forever resonate in our hearts. Rest peacefully, dear Frank, knowing your legacy of love and giving will always be cherished.
