Obituary

Frank Anthony LaSala passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at Samaritan Hospice in Mt. Holly,NJ.

Frank was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois. He graduated from Rockford East High School in 1965 and was drafted into the U.S Army in 1966. Frank proudly served his country in Vietnam where he was awarded both the Purple Heart and Bronze Star.

After serving in the U.S.Army for three years, Frank was fortunate to work at Detroit Diesel Allison, a division of General Motors, for over 40 years until his retirement. He had many great experiences traveling around the country and making many friends along the way.

Frank was born with gas and oil in his veins having an incredible passion for car restoration since his youth. Over the years, he restored several cars with passion and precision. He could always be found in the garage with a wrench in his hand and a giant smile on his face.

Frank is survived and celebrated by his wife of 53 years Cynthia, his two sons Benjamin and Anthony, his five beautiful grandchildren who he loved and adored Alexis, Nickolas, Zoe, Camryn and Anthony along with his two wonderful daughter-in-laws Christine and Tara.

Frank touched many people with his generosity and kindness. He will be remembered fondly for his bravery, infectious smile, and passion for life.

Due to COVID restrictions the family has chosen to celebrate Frank’s life privately. In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations can be made in Frank’s name to the following institutions which provided him tremendous support during his five year health battle:

Jefferson University Hospital
American Red Cross
Samaritan Hospice

To my dad,

In the end all we have our memories. Things become meaningless and only the people you touch remain. I can say I have many memories with you and many stories to tell. We were different people and sometimes did not understand each other but you always accepted me for who I was. You supported me through everything; from my craziness in childhood through to my adulthood(which is also a bit crazy - that never went away). You were always a phone call away, as long as mom gave you the phone. We talked about work, cars, politics, sports, kids, etc.

You were your own version of the Renaissance man. You engaged in life in all aspects. You supported and loved your family, found success in your career and enjoyed your hobbies. You taught me to work with my hands and gave me the confidence to try things that maybe were a bit scary for an IT guy.

I will always remember the times we had together but most importantly the lessons you taught me through your actions. You were always kind, generous and grateful. You saw value in things that were broken and neglected. You always taught the family to be happy with what we had and keep moving forward to be better everyday. You never gave up even when it was difficult and painful for you which put your bravery on full display.

I am sad that you are gone but grateful you are at peace now . You will always be with me.


I know you are looking down on the entire family and we are all going to make you proud and carry on your legacy and appreciate everything your gave to us.

I will always remember Frank. He was an amazing man and a courageous fighter. He loved life and he loved his family. I feel that it was an honor to know him and to fight along side him as long as I did. He will be sorely missed

Best Factory rep and gentleman I ever work with, his advice always worked. He'd say in my military mind I can hear as I write. What a coach he was always in control with a smile. God Bless you Frank-THANK YOU
