Let the memory of Frank be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Frank Ferrer, 94, born on October 30, 1922 and passed away on July 28, 2017. We will remember him forever.

Frank came into this world as a fighter & fought his last battle on July 28th, 2017. He met his future bride, Dora, in junior high school. They were married 10 days after graduation. Frank had enlisted in the Coast Guard due to WWII, & was stationed in New Bedford, MA. Dora left Tampa on a bus, with her mother, his mother & her maid of honor. They were married in New York City, while Frank was on leave. After the war, they eventually moved back to Tampa, where they raised their son, Frank Jr and daughter Darlene. Frank worked in the automobile business as a salesman, manager and owner of the Porsche & Audi dealership & then Datsun (Nissan) & MG dealership in Tampa. Frank & Dora loved to travel. They travelled across the country several times in a motorhome, selling the motorhome after each trip, for a profit (of course). They also loved to cruise, taking many cruises to the Carribbean and Mediterranean, where they visited Spain, Italy, Monaco and Nice. Even though Frank suffered from some cancer issues, he continued his fight to live life to the fullest. He is survived by his wife of 74 years, Dora, his daughter Darlene (Robert) Gravatt & niece, Zayda Leon. He was predeceased by his parents, Jose & Ana Maria Ferrer, his sister, Marita Leon and son Frank Jr.

Frank and I were the only two within our family.Hopefully, we may see each other again one day in that House, not made with hands, E.I.T.H. Rest in peace my Cousin & Brother."
