Obituary of Frank Sorrentino
Frank Michael Sorrentino, 77, of Jackson Heights, New York, passed away in Whippany, New Jersey, with his family by his side on March 5, 2022.
Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Frank then settled in Jackson Heights, where he resided for over thirty years.
Frank graduated from Saint Simon Stock Roman Catholic High School in 1962. He started his career as a Junior Bank Teller for Ninth Federal Savings, then enlisted in the United States Air Force. Frank proudly served from 1963-1967 during the Vietnam War as an Airman, 3rd Class, working as a Supply Specialist.
After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Frank returned to banking in the roles of Customer Service Representative and Teller with Bankers Trust and Manufacturers Hanover in New York for sixteen years. He then shared his winning smile and courteous nature as Door Concierge at Harridge House in Manhattan (Wallack Management) for twenty-three years, before retiring in 2006.
Frank was devoted to Our Lord and the Blessed Mother, dedicating much of his life to daily Mass, prayer, and personal ministry to others. He was a faithful parishioner of Saint Joan of Arc Roman Catholic Church in Jackson Heights, and a frequent worshiper at Blessed Sacrament, Corpus Christi, Our Lady of Fatima, and other Catholic Churches and shrines in his area. He was active in prayer groups, taught religious education, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus. Many religious organizations were blessed with his generous donations in support of their work.
Frank is survived by his caring sister, Josephine Corso, of Merritt Island, Florida, and cherished nieces, Lisa Swanson, of Morris Plains, New Jersey, and Christine Seger, of Merritt Island, Florida. Frank is predeceased by his beloved parents, Joseph and Messalina Sorrentino, formerly of Bronx, New York, and devoted brother, Nicholas Sorrentino, formerly of San Jose, California.
