Frank's Story

Text size

Frank Thomas Sesto, 91, of Roy, UT, died of heart failure on January 1, 2018 at McKay Dee Hospital. Frank was born on August 8, 1926 in Emporium, PA to Antonio Sesto and Maria Ritrovata; and had two daughters, Kathy Adams (deceased) and Kim Jackson of Smithfield, UT, with his first wife, Faith Bettis. Three additional children, Toni (Richard) Holmes of Costa Rica, Frank (Annmarie) Sesto, Jr. of Angola, NY and Tracey (David) Farr of Clinton, UT were born to Frank and his second wife, Shirley May Ellsworth, to whom he was sealed in the Logan, Utah L.D.S. Temple on September 26, 1960.
Born to Italian immigrants, Frank was a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and served in many different capacities within the Church. By occupation, he was a highly talented and sought-after carpenter and millwright. One of the things of which he was most proud is the fact that he was the last person to work on the Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Station, which, after Frank completed the "punch list" he was assigned, officially opened in 1961, and continues to operate to the present day. He would go on to establish his own contracting company, worked for the City of Niagara Falls, New York for approximately thirty years, and retired from W.D. Hassett, Inc. around 1991. Having served during World War II, he was also a proud veteran of the United States Army.
Frank was an avid sports fan, closely following the Buffalo Bills, the Buffalo Sabres and the Utah Jazz. As patriarch of a large family, one of his favorite pastimes was spending time with his numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. All that knew Frank loved him, and he will be dearly missed.
An informal gathering of family and friends will be held from 6-8 PM on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Myers Mortuary, 5865 South 1900 West, Roy, UT. A brief, informal burial ceremony will be held at Roy City Cemetery at 11:00 AM the following day. In lieu of sending flowers, attendees are encouraged to wear attire representing one of Frank's favorite sports teams. He is the quintessential Bills fan, and will forever be the team's proud "12th man." Go Bills!
