Frank Coppola, 86, of Kennebunkport, Maine passed away on December 5, 2019 at Southern Maine Medical Center surrounded by family members. Frank was born February 16, 1933 in Haverhill, MA, son of Frank J. Coppola and Nardina Salveggio.

Frank is survived by his wife Shirley L. French, children Susan Gray (Barbara Chase), Lisa Coppola (Thomas Stone), Frank Coppola (Julie Coppola) and Karen Johnston (Curt Johnston), sister Natalie DeCristofaro and the grandchildren he adored, Calvin Johnston, Bennett Stone, Ellie Johnston, and Lucy Stone. He is also survived by two nephews and their families, Michael DeCristofaro and John Coppola. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother John Coppola.

Frank graduated from Haverhill Trade School and was a veteran of the Korean War serving on a Naval Destroyer, the USS Hank. In 1956 he married Shirley and they shared 63 years of love and friendship, raising 4 children together. Frank was a self-employed businessman in Haverhill for many years and served on the City Planning Board.

Described as loyal and generous, he was an excellent cook who enjoyed preparing meals for large or small groups of friends and family. Frank loved to antique especially when he found a great deal, he was golf enthusiast and a sports car aficionado owning many corvettes over his lifetime. He has been a part of the Goose Rocks Beach, Maine summer community since 1950.

In his retirement Frank loved being at his home on Goose Rocks Beach during the warm weather and retreating to Briny Breezes Florida on the Intracoastal to escape the New England cold.

I will miss Frank and his dry humor. We had many good laughs together, he was a great customer that always wanted a "deal", it was fun to Jagger with him! We will miss him!

Rest in peace Frank
