In recent years, he worked on a variety of projects and became acquainted with countless merchants in the San Diego county area.

Condolences for the family of “Frank Thomas Pagano”

Condolence from Rod Matthews on January 22nd, 2013 10:05 am

Frank and I have been friends for over 10 years. Throughout our professional and personal relationship I have known him to be very thoughtful, utterly selfless, and extremely outgoing. He had a zeal for life unmatched by many. I am deeply saddened by his loss and will miss him greatly.

To the family, I know that Frank was a man of faith by the many conversations we had regarding the importance of leaning on God as a source of strength in daily walk through life. Now is certainly the time to look to God to provide you comfort and healing in your time of bereavement. My family and I will be praying with you and will stand with you throughout this trying time. Please do not hesitate to contact us for anything.

Sabrina and Angela, don’t know if you remember me but worked with you at ccc. I was saddned to hear of your loss and my thoughts are with you. I know what you are experiencing right now just having gone through it myself and the only wisdom I can give is that however and what you feel is normal. Take peace in the memories you have of your dad. My thoughts to the rest of your family as well.

I am sorry for your loss. As a family, you do not know me, but I feel like I know you because of how much Frank spoke of you all.

I have known Frank for about 4.5 years. In that time he has been my customer, my vendor, a marketing partner, and most importantly – a Godly friend. If you know Frank, you know his heart. I was impressed how he could share his faith in his daily business interactions and offer an opportunity to open a discussion of Christ as well as not offend a non-believer.

He was so pround of his FAMILY – and I mean all of you. From the appreciation for his wife, the love and joy of his girls, and of course he loved his mom.
My staff knew him as “One Hour Frank” because I could not get on a phone call with Frank and hangup within an hour.
I will miss him and hope you know his impact in the professional circles he touched.

Frank and I were the two biggest co-toters of lumber on two housebuilds South of the Border in my one year in worship and service in Ramona. His heart was bigger than his smile. I can see him smile now, over the canal and border we can see, with Jesus, keeping his promise: “In my Father’s house are many rooms: I prepared a place for you.”

Condolence from David Mills on January 23rd, 2013 8:32 pm

I will miss you deeply, to me you were always the big brother that I wanted and try to be like with my brother. I admired your wisdom, and your ability to succeed in all your endeavors. You know it was really cool to see you kick your heels up and cut loose with us, and to see the joy on your face playing with Johnny, I’m sure He will now have the best memories any child could have of his great Uncle. I also want it to be known that he loves you so much that he has new Teddy Bear named Frankie. I will miss you and miss our conversations, keeping you in my prayers. I Love Ya Bro. Dave

Condolence from Shepard Mais on January 24th, 2013 3:07 pm

I am deeply grieved when I think of your loss. Frank was a wonderful friend, good gym partner and awesome networker. We both once had businesses in Chula Vista. He would always offer to help me connect with people and willing to share his knowledge and belief. Even though we often saw many things differently we manage to have a great relationship. May the sympathy of those who care make the sorrow of your heart less difficult to bear. I will never forget the friendliness and kindness Frank extended to me.
