Born in Hazleton, he was the son of the late Louise Marsit Zagorskie and the late Charles Zagorskie.

A 1961 graduate of Hazleton High School, he excelled as a three-sport athlete competing in football, basketball and baseball.

After graduating from the Pennsylvania Police Academy, Frank was an officer in Avondale, Kennett Square, and New Garden Township. Always the civil servant, Frank served on the board of supervisors for New Garden Township while working as road master for the township, retiring in 2004.

Frank enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, boating, fishing, hunting and golfing. A longtime member of the Italian American Citizens’ League in Kennett Square, and FOP of Chester County, he will be missed by many. Those that had the immense pleasure of knowing Frank, know what it’s like to have an honest, hardworking friend, with a big heart- that always knew what to say to put a smile on your face.
