Obituary: Frank Pasqua

Frank Pasqua, a resident of Menlo Park since 1961, died April 1 at home. He was 87.

Mr. Pasqua worked as a recovery room technician at Sequoia Hospital from 1961 until 1989, when he retired.

He met his wife, Connie, when she was on a visit home to Sicily, where Mr. Pasqua lived at the time, according to their son, Joe. "They fell in love and were married. Dad followed mom back to the United States (in the Boston area) in 1956."

Mr. Pasqua was an avid gardener "who grew enough fruits and vegetables to feed the entire extended family," his son said. "Pears, apples, oranges, prickly pears, strawberries, lemons, lettuce, green beans, tomatoes, squash, and much more."

Mr. Pasqua is survived by his wife Connie; daughter Margaret; son Joe; two brothers; two grandchildren; and a large extended family in the Bay Area and in Sicily.

A funeral Mass and a rosary service have been held.

Donations in Mr. Pasqua's name may be made to the American Cancer Society or Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
