Francis Balistreri Obituary

Hunstville, AL - Francis Patrick Balistreri, affectionately known as Frank to his friends and family, left us on January 13, 2024, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Born on Valentine's Day 1967 in Troy, New York, Frank carried the spirit of love throughout his life, touching the hearts of those around him with his humor, friendliness, and loving nature. His final days were spent in Huntsville, Alabama, where he continued to share his warmth and laughter with those he cherished.

Frank was a proud graduate of Tamarac High School's Class of 1985.  After high school, Frank pursued a life rich in experiences and relationships rather than formal higher education. He found joy in the simple pleasures of life, such as fishing, exploring swap meets, and spending quality time with his friends. Among those friends, Greg Minor stood out as his best friend, a brother in all but blood, with whom countless memories were created and cherished. 

He was the son of the late Francis J. Balistreri and Eileen E. (Barr) Balistreri, who instilled in him the values of family and kindness. His brother, James G. Balistreri, predeceased him, but he is survived by his brother, Mark (Lisa) J. Balistreri, and several nieces and nephews.

His departure leaves a void in the lives of those who knew him, but his memory will continue to inspire smiles and warmth in the hearts of his family and friends. Frank's journey through life was a reminder that the most profound legacies are not built on material accomplishments but on the love and laughter we share with others.

In lieu of flowers or donations, Frank’s family and friends ask that you reach out to those family and friends you have lost touch with and mend any fences that need mending.

A private service will be held in Huntsville, Alabama, at Frank’s request.
