Frank Triglia, 86, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, April 3, 2011 in Manteca surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Stockton on January 17, 1925. In heaven he joins his parents: Tranquil and Vada Triglia; his adored wife of 43 years Rosemary, his daughter Kathe Frisk and his brother Al Triglia.

He leaves behind his children: Mary Pettis and husband Robert of Manteca, Barbara Reges and husband Bob of MD, and Frank J. Triglia Jr. and wife Lisa of Manteca. He was blessed with 9 grandchildren; John, Katrina, David, Levi, Nathan, Rick, Rosemary, Alexis, and Matthew along with 6 great grandchildren: Jacob, Tyler, Madalyn, Kaitlyn, Kelsey, and baby Donald. He leaves his 6 siblings; Sister Mary Elise, John, Mary, Carmel, Joseph, and Daniel.

Frank was a WWII veteran. He served with the US Army HAM division in Europe. He was a mechanic by trade and he retired from Sharpe Army Depot after 30 years of service.  He and his wife Rosemary also owned and operated the Manteca Creamery for eight years from 1957 till 1965.

Frank was a devout member of St. Anthony’s church.  He served as president of the Young Men’s Institute from 1955 till 1956.  He actively participated in the development and building of the new St. Anthony’s Church and School.

He enjoyed watching the San Francisco 49ers and was especially thrilled to witness the end of the torture as the San Francisco Giants won the 2010 World Series!  But the real highlight for him was cheering for his beloved grandchildren as they participated in all their activities. They could always count on “Granpaw” to be their #1 Fan.

Frank will be remembered as a kind and generous man. He was a devoted husband, loving father, amazing grandfather, and a true friend.  He had an absolute faith in God, which guided him for the many years of his life. He will be dearly missed by so many.
