Frank was very resourceful and believed in building lasting relationships. FMJ lived his life on his own terms without regrets. Those who were close to him saw his passion in action and how his big heart seemed to fill the room. Frank was born on February 21,1929 in Oak Park, Il. to Mihalj and Anna (Hadera). Along with his younger brother, Joseph they lived in the Holy Trinity Croatian Parish in the Pilsen neighborhood.  

In 1956, Frank married Isabelle 'Issy' Zapolsky (who was widowed) and become a stepdad to Nadine and the twins, Tom & Edward. Soon to arrive, Catherine and Michael. This blended family grew up in their West Lawn home in which Frank remained until his passing. After 32 years of marriage, Issy passed in 1987 and Tom passed in February 2021. His career as a Machinist started at the Gross Printing Company in 1947. Moving to the first printing press for Wall Street Journal and later Oak Forest Hospital retiring from the Chicago Police Department in 1993. Later in life, he reunited with a fellow Harrison High School alumni, Marie Culjak McGuckin and for the next 30 years their shared love of music, attending many opera and tamburitza performances and just as many social and business meetings.

Over the years, dozens of organizations prospered from Frank's dedication and loyalty. With the Boys Scouts of America, as proud Union member of IAMAW for 74 years, serving as Adjutant for American Legion Pilsen Post #825, Board Member of National Federation of Croatian Americans (NFCA) and President of the Croatian Fraternal Union (CFU) Sloboda Lodge 32 to name a few. Frank attended every music festival, convention and meeting possible bringing his sense of duty, passion for fraternalism and friendship. He enjoyed visiting with old friends and making new ones.  Generations knew Frank and he would share stories of their parents or grandparents with the youngest.  He shared his good fortune with many. Those he met received a token of good luck in the way of gold coins (Teaching along the way: Coins are minted at two locations - Denver and Pennsylvania). His extra special, one-of-a-kind gift was a two-dollar bill whose serial numbers matched your age or birth year. It was his own way of honoring your celebration.

Frank showed us all how to live life to the fullest.

Ligaya was preceded in death by her husband, David Rezek.  She was also preceded in death by one brother and one sister.  Also known as Pat, she is survived by her 3 “pogi” brothers.  

Ligaya was a strong woman who bore 11 children, one died at birth.  She has 29 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.  She is known as “Tita Pat” by her numerous nieces and nephews.

Ligaya graduated summa cum laude from the University of the Philippines, Los Banos, where she met her first husband, Herminio Solis.   Ligaya was a grade school teacher in the Philippines in Santo Tomas, Davao del Norte for many years.   She remarried in 1970 and immigrated to America in 1972. 

She is well loved by her faith community with strong ties to Maryknoll.  She provided much positive energy while working for CBI and the University of Chicago Hospital.  She loved singing and dancing, and along with her late husband, was an avid bridge player. 

Ligaya battled Parkinson’s disease for 25 years and it was her strong faith to God that got her through it all, especially the last two challenging years.  Her caregivers loved her like a Mom.  Her warm, beautiful soul was an inspiration to all that knew her and to all that know of her.  Above all, her delicious homemade cooking always brought friends and family together.  She is in a much better place now but will be dearly missed by all.

James was a wonderful husband and father. He brought laughter to all with his slapstick humor and would light up when a grandchild would present him with a corny joke. He loved to socialize with anyone he came across. Cab drivers, waitresses and doormen could not escape his genuine conversation and interest in their lives.  An avid Sox fan who enjoyed watching his Uncle Ignatius throw out the first pitch!   Extremely proud of his Irish heritage, watching a Notre Dame game was a treat. James was a kind and gentle soul and we will miss the twinkle in his eye for ever and always.
