Frank Stephen Bozza, avid golfer, sports enthusiast, voracious reader and dog lover, died on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.
Born in Greenwich, Frank graduated from Greenwich High School in 1959 having lettered in four varsity sports: football, swimming, hockey and baseball. He went on to graduate from Villanova University and then to work for more than 20 years at Neptune World Wide Moving before starting his own business, K & K Moving Services of Greenwich.
He especially enjoyed his time with friends, whether he was golfing at the Griff, boating on the Sound, skiing in Vermont, or relaxing with a cold Budweiser on his deck.Frank was preceded in death by his sister Carol, his mother and father Dorothy and Frank Bozza, and his beloved and “perfect” golden retriever, Bogey.
Frank would like to thank his ex-wife, Ann Penny (Ralph Penny) for giving him two wonderful daughters – Kristen Bozza (Larry Gellman) of Tucson, Arizona and Dr. Kerry Bozza Funkhouser (Kurt Funkhouser) of Hailey, Idaho. Frank leaves behind his best friend and companion, Barbara Keller of Middletown, Rhode Island and her wonderful family, including her three children and in particular, her sister or “doc” Nancy.
Together for over 20 years, Frank wished to thank Barbara for the laughter and love, and for standing by him at the end. Lastly, both Frank and his family would like to thank the staff at the Bendheim Cancer Center at Greenwich Hospital for their skilled care and kindness while he was there.
