Frank William Tellerico born on November 12, 1942 transitioned peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family in Farmington Hills, Michigan on January 21, 2023 after nearly a seventeen year journey with Parkinson’s Disease.
Frank was born in Detroit, Michigan to Anthony and Sarah Tellerico. He graduated from St. Alphonsus Catholic School in 1961, then he continued his education at Ferris State University. After two years he returned home to begin a prosperous, fulfilling and life long career in his family business as a Locksmith at Cass Lock Company in Detroit, Michigan.
In 1963, Frank met the love of his life Gail Ann Lawrie on a blind date. Frank and Gail married in 1966 and enjoyed fifty-six years of marital bliss. They went on to have four beautiful children, Christopher Tellerico (Denise Tellerico), Stacy Prangely (Marc Prangley), Bridgett Tellerico and Carrie Tellerico.
Frank had an undeniable passion and true love for his family, boats, gadgets, dogs and the cottage in St. Clair Beach, Ontario Canada. For over fifty year, the cottage was truly a second home for Frank. During his youth he would empty out his work van to cross the border to be with his family.
Frank’s legacy lives on through his four wonderful grandchildren Eleanore Tellerico, Brodie Prangley, Jackson Tellerico and Blake Prangley. Frank leaves to cherish his memories best friends and brother and sister-in-law David and Nancy Lawrie, his loving niece Maeve Lawrie, nephews Reed Lawrie (Meghan Lawrie), Adam Lawrie (Lindsay Lawrie), and Connor Lawrie (Kelsey Lawrie) and his great-nieces and nephews who brought countless smiles.
