Frank Michael Fazio of Weirton, WV., passed away peacefully with his family at his side at Liza’s Place in Wheeling on Wednesday, March 10, 2021. He was 91 years old. Frank was born on Wednesday, October 2, 1929, in Holliday’s Cove, WV, to Carmen and Mary Marsona Fazio.

He was fully engaged as a frequent and loyal member continuing his board duties until he was eighty-nine years old.

Fazio, on October 14, 2008, and his son Michael Fazio. Left behind to cherish his memory is his daughter Josephine (Dennis) Hughes of Bellaire, OH., sister Catherine Colbert of New York, grandchildren Kristopher (Akiko) French of Japan, Kelly (Greg) Novak of Dillonvale, OH., Megan (Josh) Weber of Columbus, OH., Taylor Hughes of Neffs, OH., eight great-grandchildren, nephews, Mark (Theresa) Sample, Kevin Sample and special friend, Don Kennedy.
