Obituary of Frank Zsoldos

On Thursday April 16, 2020 Frank Zsoldos passed away at the age of 95. He joins his wife Eileen, his two sisters Lilian and Irene as well as his childhood friend Ezio in heaven.

Frank was born in Manhattan in January 1925. He was a WWII veteran.

He attended Queens College majoring in Chemistry. He married his wife Eileen and had two children when he moved from NYC to Denville, NJ. He lost his wife two years later. He continued to persevere and raise his children with unwavering devotion in a time when being a “single dad” was unheard of.

He was an avid gardener. He spent hours working tirelessly in his garden. However, Orchids were his favorite hobby giving them constant care. He even took to growing them in homemade greenhouses.

He discovered a second passion in being a dancer. He met Ginny, his companion of 30+ years, at a square dance and instantly became partners for th\e rest of his life. He and Ginny went dancing at every opportunity possible and loved a good party. He was so elegant that often people mistook the pair for professional dancers. He danced right up until the very end.

His heart was so big that he took Ginny’s children as well as his son-in-law under his wing to teach and guide them through life as he did his own children.

He was able to achieve his greatest dream of becoming a world traveler. He traveled most of Europe including his ancestral homeland of Hungary. He visited exotic places such as the Amazon rainforest, Machu Picchu, China, the USSR, and Cuba. He was able to the visit all if not most of the wonders of the world fulfilling his childhood dream.

He was a constant flirt with the ladies but always in the most respectful way. He won the hearts of the nurses who cared for him towards the end. He will be missed by all those who knew him.

He is survived by his son Frank, his daughter Eileen, and her husband Doug. His life-long companion Ginny and her children Melissa, Robby, and Cindy.
