Frank J. Smith, Sr.

April 26, 1949 - October 21, 2021

ANDOVER – Frank J. Smith, Sr. 72, passed away on Thursday (October 21, 2021) at Jones Memorial Hospital as a result of Covid-19.

Frank was born in Hornell on April 26, 1949 to Frank and Jean (Ellis) Smith. He attended Alfred State College and worked his entire life in construction.

Along with his companion LeDorna D. Monahan, Frank is survived by his mother Jean, and step-father Mike Vockovic, who raised him after the death of his father;  his four children, Jolene (Donald) Green of Virginia, Jamie Smith of Wellsville and Frank J. Smith and Cody Smith both of Andover; his siblings, Dan (Julie) Smith of Alfred Station, Sharon Quintas of Alfred, and Carol Cull of Texas; grandchildren, Trenton Green, Carter Green, Rylan Green, Hudson Green, Dahlia Green, Baylen Green, Oden Green, Vella Green, Ash Green, Elbie Green, Aubree Monroe, and Makalia Monroe; and his mother-in-law, Carol Monahan of Hornell, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Frank was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Leslie Monahan.

Frank’s ride of choice was Harley-Davidson and he was exhilarated by a nice long ride. He enjoyed browsing classic car and truck shows and shooting the breeze with friends.

He and LeDorna celebrated 39 years of a wonderful life together. They enjoyed many experiences and especially loved the simple things of life. They had great fun hitting flea markets in the summer time and hosting their family cook outs. The holidays were very special due to the great family gatherings. And they simply enjoyed rock music as a mutual pastime.

A Celebration of Life will be scheduled for a later date.  Arrangements are under the direction of Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Andover. Online condolences may be offered at www.baker-swan.com. © 2021 Baker-Swan Funeral Home.

A Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a later date.
