Frank Saccomanno

October 19, 1941 ~ August 13, 2023
Our beloved husband, father, grandfather and longtime friend Frank Saccomanno, age 81, passed away peacefully August 13, 2023, in his home in Spring Glen surrounded by his loving family.
He was born October 19, 1941, in Price, Utah to Ernest Saccomanno and Gladys Kenner.  Frank was raised in Spring Glen, Utah, where he worked on the farm with his dad. There, he learned to be one of the hardest-working people around. He married his one true love and soul mate Lee Rasmussen in Elko, Nevada, November 2, 1963.
He passed down this work ethic to his children and grandchildren. He spent two years in the military as an MP in The Presidio of San Francisco, and later returned to Spring Glen, where he spent his career working for Utah Power and Light at the Carbon plant.
Frank worked hard to provide for his family and expected all his kids to go to college and supported them in this effort. When Frank retired, he was instrumental in bringing pressurized irrigation to Spring Glen as the president of The Spring Glen Canal Company. He worked tirelessly, but joyfully, on his beloved farm and with the help of his wife always had the most amazing garden, while continually fighting the deer invasion. Frank experienced a tragic farming accident in 2015 that he miraculously survived because of his strength and love of life and fought every day since to continue to live life to its fullest.
Frank was known for his quick wit, intelligence and humor. He loved life, and people always knew they were welcome because of the smile on his face. His wife and family were his true joy and love – he always enjoyed evening dinners at the kitchen table, holidays with his family, camping and playing games.
He is survived by his wife, Lee Saccomanno; daughter Natalie (Shannon) Saccomanno of Bayfield, Colorado; daughter Lisa (Scott) Milovich of Eugene, Oregon; son Frank (Judy) Saccomanno of Spring Glen; and daughter Bernedette Saccomanno of Denver, Colorado; grandchildren Frank A. Saccomanno, Isaac E. Milovich, Abbie Saccomanno and Jared J. Saccomanno; sister Erna Lee Porter and brother- and sister in-laws; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by his parents (whom he loved deeply and always talked about), siblings Mary Ann Biljanic and Frances Hanson, and friend and cousin Hughy Saccomanno.
