Obituary of Frank S Capitano Sr.

Frank Salvador Capitano Sr. of Saint Petersburg, Florida passed away peacefully December 28th, 2019 at the age of 71. He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on July 7th 1948 and moved to Tampa, Florida as a young child. Frank is preceded in death by his father and mother Sam and Josephine Capitano of Tampa, Florida. He is survived by his five children, Donna Lobelle of New Port Richey, Frankie Capitano of Port Richey, Tammy Feliciano of Seffner, Nicholas Capitano of Saint Petersburg, and Jennifer Smith of Riverview. He is also survived by his brother Sammy Capitano (Rita), and sister Angie Fernandez (Tony) both of Tampa; former wives, Pennie Bongiorno of Hudson and Kathy Capitano of Indian Rocks Beach, and loving partner, Judy Robertson of South Pasadena. Also, his five grandchildren, Courtney Colossa, Kagan Smith, and Cambree Smith of Riverview and Tommy and Christopher Feliciano of Seffner, as well as great-grandchildren, five nieces, and many friends. Frank was a dedicated youth baseball and football coach and devoted his life to coaching and mentoring kids in the Tampa Bay area for over 50 years. He was an excellent pitching coach and made sure his players were taught the proper mechanics so as not to injure their young arms. He was one of the original founders and volunteers of the Dixie Junior Rebels in Pinellas Park Florida and an active and dedicated volunteer and coach at Northwest Little League in St. Petersburg Florida, holding many positions on the board over the years. Frank was so many things to so many people; a proud and caring father, papa, husband, brother, coach, and friend. He will be remembered for his dedication to the Tampa Bay youth and his passionate coaching style. Frank was a great man and will be deeply missed by his loving family and friends! Services will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, January 5th, 2020 at 2:00 pm with the memorial service starting at 3:00 pm.
