On October 7, 2023, age 69, longtime Haddonfield and West Windsor resident; Beloved husband of the late Tracy Stiefel; Loving father of Frank J. IV (Holly) of Portland, OR and William of Laramie, WY; Cherished son of Frank J. II and Genevieve; Dear brother of Christine, Virginia, Jeanne, and Joanne. Frank spent every day in service to his family, friends, and community. He cared deeply for those he knew well, while consistently opening his doors to those he met along the way.
Frank’s storied career in the pharmaceutical industry connected him to lifelong friends, colleagues, and his wife Tracy. He was known and respected across the industry and around the world for his sharp mind, big heart, and generous mentorship. Outside of work, he volunteered with Meals on Wheels and supported the Hands Together charity. Wherever he saw an opportunity to help, Frank stepped up to the plate, working hard without question. Before launching his professional career, he graduated from Davidson College, where he remained a proud and active alumnus throughout his life.
Frank had an intrinsic love of sports, especially the game of golf, and he shared this love with his family and friends. He rooted on his Yankees and Giants while nurturing and supporting the athletic pursuits of his children. His work and spirit of exploration led him around the world, cultivating a global perspective and enthusiasm for new places. Never shy to crack a joke, or share a smile, Frank could brighten any room. He was well-loved for his wit and intelligence. The music never stopped for Frank and he continued to see his favorite artists perform live throughout his life. His heart was most full when together with family and friends, his beloved dogs, sharing a day on the beach, or sitting down to a delicious meal. He would have sacrificed anything for those he loved. His loyalty and commitment knew no bounds. Frank’s soul held faith in God and he remained wholly grateful for the beauty he found on earth.
Frank’s family will receive friends on Thursday, October 26th, 9:30-10:45 AM at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior, Wood Lane & Wayne Ave., Haddonfield, NJ; where his Service will follow at 11 AM. Interment, private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in honor of Frank may be made to The Humane Society of the United States.
