Age 47, of Mt. Lebanon PA passed peacefully with his family by his side on Saturday May 13, 2023 after a 6 month battle with cancer. Loving husband of 19 years of Deborah (Fassler) Gill; beloved father of Micah, Mollie and Charles Gill; cherished son of Francis G. Gill Sr. and Christina (Gillot) Gill; brother of Amber Ameredes (Harry) and Adam Gill (Heather); son-in-law of Andrea Fassler (the late Michael); and brother-in-law of Steven Fassler (Anne), Sally Dornaus (David), and Elizabeth Fassler (Dan). Frank is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and other extended family and friends.
Frank grew up in South Park, PA , graduated high school in 1993, attended Penn State University, and in 1997 earned a BS in Business Logistics. He began work with Price Waterhouse and had a successful career as an IT Consultant specializing in SAP implementations for large enterprises including Gillette, Ford Motor Co, Johnson and Johnson and most recently the Department of the Navy. He quickly became an expert in his field but more importantly earned the respect and admiration of his peers, colleagues and clients.
It was at his first assignment at PW where he met the love of his life Deb. They had so much in common, quickly became best friends, and that friendship became the foundation of an incredible marriage that provided them with three of the most beautiful children. Their interests in golfing, skiing, cooking and traveling became so wonderfully woven into their family's lifestyle.
While in high school, Frank played soccer and also enjoyed skiing with his high school ski club, ice skating at South Park's ice rink, and playing golf at the local course. Frank was the ultimate volunteer as a parent serving as a soccer coach and a baseball coach, but became best known for coaching youth hockey while also becoming a Board member of the Mt Lebanon Hockey Association. He loved the "Hornets" and they all loved and admired him, too. He also played in an adult hockey league for a number of years fulfilling his passion for the game as a coach, board member, fan and as a player.
Frank will be most remembered as being one of the nicest, kindest, most caring and thoughtful person one would ever know. He was so well respected and admired by anyone and everyone who had the good fortune of knowing him. His smile will never be forgotten.
