Frank A. Shaginaw, of Shaler, PA, passed away peacefully after a long illness on May 10, 2020. He was 88. He is survived by his loving wife of over 59 years, Rose Ann (Crease), his three sons, Frank Jr. (Leslie Snyder) of West Deer Township, PA, Tom (Kelly) of Burnt Hills, NY, and Mark (Bridget) of Harwick, PA, grandchildren, Christopher, Brian, Morgan, Erin, Matthew, Maxwell, Alexander, Amanda and Emily, and “furry daughters”, Cinnamon and Ginger. Born in Etna to the late Frank and Barbara (Hrbolic) Shaginaw, Frank grew up in a large family. His early years were shaped by life in a US mill town in the Great Depression and WWII. After graduating Etna High School, he joined Bell Telephone (later AT&T), where he worked until his retirement in 1985, progressing through roles of increasing responsibility from being a lineman to managing a teletype organization as the digital age dawned. Throughout his career, he pursued continuing education, advancing his understanding of electronics, operations and leadership. Frank was a proud veteran. His time aboard ship, in the US Coast Guard, suited him and grew his penchant for purpose, order, and intention. A life-long Pittsburgh resident, Frank had a sharp, inquisitive mind, and a wry sense of humor. He was a voracious reader of news. Frank enjoyed the logic challenges of card games and crossword puzzles, and music ranging from tamburitza to Dave Brubeck. A longtime member of the Croatian Fraternal Union, Frank embraced his Croatian heritage. In retirement, Frank was happiest when he was on his front porch, chatting with family and neighbors, and simply enjoying the beauty of a warm day. In Frank’s final years, he was comforted by his extended family, especially his niece, Daneen Cristiano, who provided immeasurable support and guidance. The family thanks the staff of Amber Woods at Harmar Village and Heartland Hospice for their care for Frank at the end of his life. Their commitment during this global pandemic is heroic. There will be no services. The family encourages all who knew him to take a moment to cherish the people in their lives. Contributions, in Frank’s name may be made to The Humane Society (at www.humanesociety.org). Arrangements made by the Bock Funeral Home, LTD., Glenshaw.
