Frank is survived by his beloved wife of 59 years Margie Ruggirello. His children are Tony Ruggirello and Kris of Manteca and Cathy McAllster of Stockton.

Frank owned and operated Frank’s Arco in Manteca for over 20 years. Some of his interests were fishing and working in his garden. He was very well known around the neighborhood for his fresh home-grown tomatoes, lettuce, and fava beans. Frank was a true family man; he devoted special quality time to his wife, children and grandchildren. To remember Frank is to remember him as a reserved man who meant the world to his family.
