Frank J. Rock of Red Bank passed away on December 2, 2021 at the age of 90. Born in Jersey City, Frank joined the Marines after high school and had a career as a Port Authority policeman, retiring as a Captain after 20 years. He was a director of security for Engelhard and later, a realtor in South Carolina.

Frank was a proud alumnus of Seton Hall University. He took classes at night to obtain his degree, forever exercising an incredible work ethic.

Throughout his life, Frank lived in Saddle Brook, East Hanover, and Rumson, NJ. He also lived in Seneca, SC for many years before returning to the Red Bank area. He spent his final days at Sunrise of Shrewsbury.

Frank was predeceased by all three of his siblings, Anne, Michael and Patricia. His beloved wife of 51 years, Kathleen, passed in 2005. He is survived by his daughter Madeline and her husband Tom; his daughter Patricia and her husband Bruce; his daughter Katie and her husband Rodney; his grandchildren Brian, Katelin, Tom, Eric, Kelliann, Stephen and Michael; his four great grandchildren; and his long-time companion and best friend, Joan.

If a man’s worth is measured by how much he is loved, he died the richest man in town.

Visitation will be Sunday, December 5th from 3 to 5 pm, with military honors at 5, at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad Street, Red Bank, NJ.  Burial will be private.
