Father Frank laid to rest

PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - One of Palm Beach County's longest serving priests was laid to rest Wednesday.

He joined the Diocese of Palm Beach when it was formed in 1984.

His mission was to serve the poor. He started a food pantry and was preparing to make those meals, when he passed away in his home on May 12th.

He was 79.
