Francisco Zayas Jr.

Francisco “Frank” Zayas passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 16, 2024 after a strong battle with cancer. Loved by many and survived by his devoted wife Debbie Zayas of many years. Together they had one son Matthew with a son Michael and daughter Doris from a very early relationship in his younger years.  He is survived by his sisters Evelyn and Migdalia with a younger brother John who predeceased him.  He had 7 grandchildren, Lorenzo, Parker, Miles, Hayley, Anthony, Lisa and April.

His favorite past time was his love of old cars, riding his Harley, fishing, camping, cooking, eating seafood and also had a great passion for any type of music which included singing karaoke at home.  He was born with a wrench in his hand as far back as his wife remembers and was his family's personal mechanic.  Always a positive thinker which helped him fight his cancer.

Frank will be greatly missed by all who know and loved him.  His words to live by were “Live & Let Live”.
