Frank A. Densevich, 84, of Bellefonte, passed away Wednesday. He was born in Atlantic City, N.J., and raised in Altoona. Frank attended Altoona Catholic Higher College, exactly where he played football and created life-extended close friends.

In 1960, though enrolled in the U.S. Army, he married Judy A. Notari and created a dwelling in Staten Island, N.Y. Soon after a handful of quick years they moved to Vineland, N.J., and raised their kids.

Frank was the manager of Kress Division Retailers and later worked in adult education. Though in Vineland, he was an active member of the Saint Isadore’s Catholic Church. He was also a member of the Vineland Jaycees, an elected member of the Vineland City Council and a fourth degree Knight.

He enjoyed becoming a state swimming referee and attending all of his daughters’ events. Frank and Judy spent various hours volunteering. As an active member of the Penn State South Jersey Shore Club, they would raise cash for numerous scholarships to Penn State University.

Upon retirement, he and Judy moved to Bellefonte, and became avid PSU season ticket holders for a lot of diverse sports. Frank joined the St. John’s Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus and was a member of Bellefonte Arranging Board. He also volunteered at Penn State All Sports Museum. He volunteered a lot of hours to fundraisers and was in particular loyal to the “Soup and Salad” fundraiser that has now been named just after his wife, Judy. He was an avid and active member of the NRA. Frank believed in providing back to his neighborhood quietly and with no acknowledgment.
