Obituary of Frank M. Laudati

Frank M. Laudati Pine Bush, NY Francis (Frank) Laudati, 70, of Pine Bush, NY, peacefully passed away on March 24, 2021. Frank was born on April 27, 1950 to Theresa Daniello and Michael Laudati in the bustling city of Brooklyn, NY. After he graduated from New Utrecht High School he decided to serve his county and enlisted in the Army, later he continued in his public service and joined the NYPD until he retired in 1996 as a sergeant. One of his most prideful accomplishments was continuing his education and receiving a bachelor degree from New York Institute of Technology, while protecting the streets of NY and raising his growing family. Frank was also passionate about his faith and was proud that in his entire life he only missed Mass three times. He worked hard on sharing his mission and, not only encouraged some adult friends to receive their sacraments, a few special people he stood by as they received their First Holy Communion and were confirmed. He was the sponsor for more confirmation candidates then can be remembered. Hand in hand with his faith was the love of his family. While in high school , he met Loretta Tullo. Frank and Loretta went on to have four children, Anthony, Christine, Raymond and Theresa . As his family grew so did his sense of pride. They went on to welcome fourteen grandchildren. Frank retired in 1996 after 23 years in law enforcement. While retired, he had time to pursue his love of family, spending time with Loretta, and traveling to see distant relatives. He always found time to pass by a casino for his wife. One of Frank's favorite past times was telling stories of Loretta's gambling prowess. Whether a race track or a casino, they stood side by side and shared the joy of a "big win". As the kids grew out of the house Frank and Loretta decided to adopt another family, which became his passion until his dying day. They first took in Smokee and then Spooky a short time later. These two adorable chihuahuas added Frankee soon after, and family number two was complete. In 2020 Smokee passed peacefully in Frank's arms and is resting peacefully in Pine Bush, NY. Francis was predeceased by his loving wife, Loretta, his son Raymond and his four legged “Marine” Smokee. He is survived by his three children, Anthony and his wife Laurie of Walden, NY, Christine and her companion, William of Fort Meyers Florida, Theresa and her husband Greg, as well as, his adored Grandchildren Tyler, Alexis, Kristine, Paul, Emily, Kristoffer, Ryan, Joseph, Anjalyna, Ryan, Daniel, Victoria, Loghan and Joshua.
