Frank J. Pastore, 77, passed away surrounded by his loved ones, on Sunday, January 31, 2016. Born in Ballston Spa, NY on July 23, 1938, he was the son of Ralph and Frances Pastore.
Frank was a true family man who was never so happy as when he had his wife, children and grandchildren gathered around him. He was proud of the fact that he lived his life in Ballston Spa where he had met many friends throughout his life and successful career with Prudential Insurance. One of his passions was a love for cars, which he was able to celebrate volunteering at Saratoga Automobile Museum.
Frank is predeceased by his parents Frances and Ralph Pastore. He is survived by his wife Carolyn (Mone) of Ballston Spa, his son and daughter-in-law Rob and Cyndi of Saratoga, his daughter Michelle Kiah of Wilbraham, his son and daughter-in-law Steve and Collette of Gansevoort and his sister Marie Hettrich of Ballston Spa. He has six loving grandchildren, Robert, Matthew, Emily, and Christina Pastore, and Ryan and Ross Kiah.
Funeral services will be held 9:30am Thursday, February 4, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Milton Avenue, Ballston Spa where a mass of Christian burial will be celebrated. Burial will follow in St. Peter’s Cemetery, Saratoga Springs. Relatives and friends are invited to call on Wednesday, February 3, from 5pm to 7pm at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street, Ballston Spa.
Frank and his family would be honored if, in lieu of flowers, donations would be made to the Hortense and Louis Rubin Dialysis Center of Saratoga, NY where he received excellent care and loving kindness. The family would also like to thank the staff at Saratoga Hospital. The nurses there described Frank as always having a wonderful sense of humor. They could not have been more caring to Frank and his family during this difficult time.
