Francis "Frank" A. Ressa

Francis A. "Frank" Ressa, 79, of Southington and formerly of Schenectady, NY, passed away peacefully at Hartford Hospital on Sunday, February 27, 2022 after a long struggle with heart disease. He had been the loving husband of Yvonne (Colino) Ressa for nearly 54 years. 

Frank was born in Schenectady, NY to the late Vincenzo and Mary (Pasquarella) Ressa. He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force from 1964 -1967 during the Vietnam War, finishing his tour at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines.  Frank worked as database administrator and retired from NASDAQ. He loved to travel and watch all sports, especially the NY Giants and NY Yankees and could be described as a "walking sports Almanac."
