Keller Jr Fam Tree on ancestry
Francis J. "Frank" Cirino Virginia Beach - We celebrate the long and amazing life of Senior Chief Builder 
Francis J. "Frank" Cirino, USN (Ret), 96, of Virginia Beach. He passed on Monday, May 23, 2016 in the 
arms of his adoring wife of nearly 75 years, Dorothy (Dottie). Born on November 7, 1919 in Wilmington, DE 
Frank was one of four sons and one daughter born to Francesco and Teresa Cirino who were Italian 
immigrants. The family moved to Philadelphia where his father opened a barbershop and Frank learned one 
of his many trades. Frank served in the Navy with distinction for 28 years as an engineman, an aviation 
machinist and a Seabee and was involved in three wars World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. For his second 
career, Frank was a facilities manager for the Navy Resale System where he worked for 20 years. Frank 
and Dottie were able to live in such places as Taiwan and Guam while witnessing many of mankind's 
greatest accomplishments. After retiring from the Navy Exchange System, you could find Frank out 
bowling, playing golf or taking Dottie out to dinner. Until late last fall Frank along with some of his closest 
friends and his son-in-law could be found playing nine holes at the crack of dawn on Fridays at Bow Creek 
Golf Course. This loving husband and father is survived by his wife, Dottie, his daughter Pattie and son-in-
law Jack of Virginia Beach, Jack's sons John and Scott of Louisville and Scott's daughter Elizabeth of 
Noblesville, IN, his brother Ralph of Philadelphia, and his many nephews and nieces. A memorial service will 
be held at 10:00 a.m., June 3, 2016 at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, please 
send donations to the American Cancer Society, the Navy Memorial Foundation, or the CEC/Seabee 
Historical Foundation. Online condolences may be expressed at
