    So sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. He was such a sweet man. Enjoyed visiting with him at the Polish picnics in the past. I know how devoted you and your sister were to him for the last several years. May all your precious memories comfort you during this time. Thoughts and prayers, my friend.

  3. Michael & Fran,

    I’ll never forget that Uncle Frank didn’t treat me like a little kid growing up….even though I was one. His kindness was endless. He always had a positive outlook on life. He and Aunt Zosia were very impactful on my memories growing up. While our family size shrinks as time goes by I am reminded of how luck I am to be part of it.

    God Bless!

  5. Francie and Michael,

    We share in your loss. Your father was like a second father to me and my sisters. He was never negative always positive. Big shoulders to lean on when we needed him. Rest in peace Uncle Frank, our thoughts and prayers are with you. When you see our mother and father tell them we are doing well. GOD SPEED! You have a lot of relatives that are waiting your arrival. Love Sylvia and Dick

  7. Mike & Fran, I am so glad I was able to meet your Dad at the Polish picnic last yr. May you both have peace knowing that our Father in heaven will care for him now. In a world like we live in now, the care and love you had for your Dad was inspiring. Dennis

  8. So many wonderful things can be said about Uncle Frank, that I would not know where to begin. He loved people and he was always ready to share his home and his “sausage” with his friends and family. He was clever. He had a solution for life’s most frustrating challenges. Many of his inventions are still to be found in his house. Growing up, I could still hear the polish music being played on his radio in the kitchen where he would be cooking something good. He was strong and always had an opinion about all things. I never wanted to argue with Uncle Frank because he would always win, although I loved the debates. Toward the end, he depended on Francie and Micheal for their strength and support and they gave back with their time and love to keep him in his “palace”

    I will miss you.

    your soul like your Dad did…what a great legacy he leaves with the family and

    friends and we will never forget his outlook on life and will miss hearing

    about all the interesting things he would tell us when we did get to see him

    and cannot forget how you both did an exceptional job in making your Dad and

    Moms life a little bit easier by just being there for them….Lots of hugs and

    prayers to your family from your life time friends…Ron and Patty

  11. Tina & Jack Wells…So sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. I will always remember dancing with him at the Polish picnic. He was a great guy and glad he passed those sweet qualities to his son. Take comfort in knowing you and your sister took such good care of him and prepared all those great Polish dishes he enjoyed. Love you, Tina

  13. So very sorry to hear of Mr. Broskys’ passing. I did not get to meet him until he was in his nineties and on one of what had to be one of his darkest days, but you would never have guessed it listening to him or seeing that smile light up the room, Heaven was obviously missing one Angel. Sincerely, Charles W Biewen

  15. Michael and Francine, It’s been a long time since I’ve seen either of you but Mark and I visited Uncle Frank and Aunt Zosia more recently and he just happened to have fresh polish sausage ready for us. The visit rekindled fond memories of visits to Weirton and reinforced my affection for them. My condolences to you with love.
