Obituary of Frankie Nunez Sr.
Frankie Nunez Sr was born August 24, 1941 in Lares, Puerto Rico. He passed away with his 2 loving sons, Frankie Jr. & Johnny, present on March 29, 2023. Frankie lived with Julia Nunez for over 50 years in the Fordham Road section of the Bronx.
Frankie was predeceased by his parents, Sinforoso (Father) & Eduvijes (Mother) and 2 sisters, Patria & Primtiva/Prima.
Frankie was a hard worker throughout his life and always provided for his family. He was a roofer, salesman (sometimes street vendor), construction worker and recently a security guard. Saying Frankie cared for others was an understatement. Frankie was somewhat of a "green thumb" helping turn a dog fighting parcel in the back of his apartment to a community garden on Davidson Ave. It was dubbed "Operation Green Thumb" and he was very proud of it. Frankie loved Elvis Presley and always had a pair of sunglasses and hairbrush/comb so he could be as cool as Elvis. Frankie loved Julia and their 2 sons and always was there as a strong male role model.
Frankie came from a large family of 10 brothers & sisters, their husbands & wives, numerous cousins, nieces/nephews and he truly loved them all. When Frankie came to visit you, he had a knack of making himself comfortable. A cold Cerveza (beer) was normally in hand and probably his favorite, Budweiser.
Frankie is survived by Julia, their 2 sons (Frankie Jr & Johnny), 4 sisters (Cruz/Cuchi, Gloria/Gory, Maria & Juanita), 3 Brothers (Efrain, Cresencio/Chito & Lorenzo/Lencho), numerous cousins/nieces & nephews and a wonderful group of friends.
Frankie will truly be missed by all who knew him.
