Frank Joseph Angotti
Frank Joseph Angotti, 97, of Weston, passed away surrounded by loving family and under the compassionate care of Seller's Care Home in Jane Lew on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
He was born in Clarksburg on November 20, 1921, a son of the late Thomas and Mary Folio Angotti, who immigrated from San Giovanni, Fore, Italy.
After Frank graduated from St. Patrick's High School he joined the United States Army and took part in World War II. Following wartime he attended West Virginia University on the G-I Bill and graduated with a degree from the Business and Economics College.
In 1949 Frank put his business degree to good use. He bought the poolroom he worked in as a boy and named it Angotti's. Frank owned and operated Angotti's for 54 years. While he operated Angotti's, Frank began working for the WV State Road Commission Department of Highways District 7 as a comptroller in 1969.
On January 8, 1950, Frank married the love of his life, Olga M. Corcovilos and they began creating their life together. They shared 42 wonderful years of marriage and the joys of raising their five girls before her passing on February 13, 1992.
In addition to his parents and wife, Frank was preceded in death by five siblings: Michael Angotti, John Angotti, Flora Farnsworth, Marie Wakim and Thomas Angotti; and one son-in-law, David Williams.
Frank is survived by five daughters: Mary Anna Angotti Weber and husband, Gary, of Noblesville, IN, Constance Angotti Williams of Morgantown, Sylvia Hayhurst and husband, Terry, of Farmington, Teresa Angotti and husband, Reginald Hawver, of Weston, and Lisa Angotti of Heber, UT; six grandchildren: Gary L. Weber II, Brian Williams, Dr. Michael Williams, Kathleen Marie Baily, Emily Hawver and Ethan Hawver; six great-grandchildren: Nicholas, Alex, Ava, Sophia Grace, Isabella and Aria; several nieces and nephews; one sister-in-law, Violet L. Angotti of Weston; and special caregivers: Sherri Sellers, Linda Heater and Connie Riffle.
Frank was a member of the Republican Committee of Lewis County, Lewis County VFW, American Legion and was the oldest surviving life-long member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. He had much recognition for his accomplishments throughout his life. Frank received a medal from the French Ambassador for participation in D-Day at Normandy, was Republican of the Year in Lewis County and most recently the 2019 Grand Parade Marshall of the West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival.
Frank will always be remembered as outgoing and friendly. No one was a stranger to him, only an opportunity to make a new friend. His amusing sense of humor and his delightful gift of conversation on any subject brought entertainment to everyone who knew him.
