Frank A. Bologna

Frank A. Bologna, age 92, died in Bridgeport Hospital on February 16, 2024, surrounded by his loving family.

Frank was a longtime resident of Trumbull. He worked for many years at Bridgeport Machines/Textron in Bridgeport and at Monroe Elementary School in Monroe.

Frank was an optimist who had a zest for life and lived by his saying, “Every day is a holiday.” He loved and valued quality time with his family; Italian dinners with his family were his favorite. His Italian sauce was magnificent and his grandchildren always wanted him to make his delicious spaghetti.

Frank would light up a room with his presence. His positive energy brought out the best in people. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed making people laugh with his jokes. Happiness and laughter was always part of his day.

The outdoors and nature brought Frank a lot of joy. He loved going to the local parks with his daughter, Joy. He had a deep appreciation for all types of music and he loved to sing, dance, and whistle.
