Frank Owens of Tinton Falls passed away Sunday, February 24, at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank after a brief illness.  He was 91.  Frank was born in New York and attended high school there.  He served in the United States Merchant Marines and the United States Army Air Force. He retired from the United States Army Reserves as a Command Sgt. Major, 5th BN, 5th FA.

After working many years with the Consolidated Edison Company, he progressed through the ranks until he was elected as a business agent for the Utility Workers Union of America Local 1-2.  Frank continued his career path with the Union retiring in 1985 as the AFLCIO - National Union’s Executive Vice President.  Upon his retirement, the Union said this about Frank:

“When Frank retired from union business, he decided immediately that he wouldn’t spend his days sitting in front of the television or hanging around the bingo halls. So he showed up at the doorstep of the U.S. Army Garrison Information Centrum at Fort Monmouth in New Jersey, saying something to the effect, ‘Here I am. I would like to be a volunteer. Use me for whatever you’d like.’  Eighteen months later Frank has his helping hand in just about everything, working closely with military personnel and civilians at Fort Monmouth.  His experience as a union leader and advocate for the underdog, coupled with his creativity and innovative ideas, has proven to be a tremendous asset to the army garrison information centrum - as he helps people resolve all sorts of problems.”  Frank explained that by using his experience and many years as a shop steward and union officer - when he fought for workers’ rights, settled labor and management disputes, challenged health benefits and insurance companies - he was able to help many military families resolve their problems.

Thomas Michael Saporito (93) of Tinton Falls, New Jersey, rejoined for all Eternity his beloved wife of 60 years Fran, on February 18, 2019 surrounded by his children peacefully in his home.  Born in Brooklyn, he was the son of the late Rose (Noto) and Joseph Saporito. Tom changed the lives of those whom he touched as a husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother, uncle, friend and neighbor.

As a veteran of "The Greatest Generation," Tom served our country during WWII in the Pacific, on the naval aircraft carrier USS Bennington. After managing the family business manufacturing ladies’ coats, he then joined the New York City Police Department (with his claim to fame of delivering 4 babies while on the job) until his retirement in 1979, after which time he worked in executive security for M&T Bank.
