With Love, To Frank,
" There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed,
Some forever, not for better, some have gone & some remain.
All these places had their moments, with lovers & friends
I still can recall, some are dead & some are living,
In my life I loved them all..."
These are the words that describe my friend Frank.
I met Frank 10 years ago.
Frank was not only another DJ friend of mine.
Frank was my teacher, my mentor, my partner,
And he was my best friend.
When I first met Frank his knowledge of music
"Blew me away"
He has been a musician for years...
In the early 60's Frank was in a band called the
He was so good that
In 1965 he received a letter from the original band
Asking not to use their name.
Music was a big part of Frank's life.
In his many years as a teacher & guidance counselor,
You would always see music memorabilia in his office,
Wall to wall especially Beatles. He loved Buddy Holly,
The day the music died, “Tommy & the Tulips, (doing
a version of Mr. Blue), just to name a few.”
"In my Life I've loved them all"
Frank was the embodiment of love...
A faithful and dedicated Husband for 30 years,
A wonderful Father to his girls Lisa & Katie and
his son Michael.
A true friend.
Whether you needed a song for an upcoming event,
A piece of equipment in the middle of the night,
Or simply just some company...Frank was there...
In fact Frank was always there when you needed him.
Frank never yelled...Frank never raised his voice...
Frank never gossiped...And if a subject were too
controversial, Frank would simply stop talking or
He would change the subject.
Frank loved his work.
Scotia - Glenville High School will never be the same.
Frank had a positive effect on people.
As a guidance counselor, as your teacher,
as a Father or as your friend
Frank touched you with his heart.

In Loving Memory of Frank Ciniglia
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an Afterglow
of smiles when the day is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways
of happy times
and laughing times
and bright sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun of happy memories
that I leave behind when the day is done.
Thank You Frank

too soon. Know that you have made a difference in this world,

From a friend
I attended Frank's wake. I met him at a Disc Jockey convention
in Atlantic City a few years ago, and we kept in touch through
Pasta Nights, and email. He was such a nice guy.
From a friend
"...We are very sad to hear the news about Frank..."

From a friend, for Frank,
A lot of people normally assume I
know a gazillion things about music
since I do radio as well as mobile, but Frank's knowledge used to blow me
He was always curious about my associations with some of the artists
I've played on the air over the years and then finally, I told him,
" Frank, You've seen more of these guys than I have ".
He truly loved music and while I
think Oldies were his favorite
given his generation, he seemed to like all kinds. I will miss him.
From a Friend
I am so saddened to hear of the
loss of Frank Ciniglia of Hot Trax DJ Service.
Over these last 20 years Frank had often been the DJ that was playing
at many of the parties that I was also contracted to "Zing" at. He always
greeted me with a friendly demeanor. I would usually need to use his
sound system and as time went on, he knew when he saw me arriving to
surprise the guest of honor and knew just what to do.
To the Relatives
and Friends of Frank,
I have been out of the wedding
video business for
about seven years now. When I received the CDWA email
about Frank's passing I knew right away who he was.
We only worked together at two or three weddings in
the early 90's but I remember Frank as a very
thoughtful and kind person who enjoyed entertaining
and giving people a wonderful time. I am sure
everyone close to him and his many friends can always
take a moment to enjoy his memory every time they think
about his kindness.
