October 19 1941
August 13, 2023
It is with a heavy heart and profound respect that we gather to remember and honor the life of Mr. Frank Saccomanno. At the age of 81, Frank departed from this world peacefully on Sunday, August 13, 2023, in the embrace of his Spring Glen home, amidst the love of his cherished family.
On October 19, 1941, the world was graced with Frank’s presence, born in Price, Utah to Ernest Saccomanno and Gladys Kenner. His journey of love began when he vowed his commitment to Lee Rasmussen, his true love and life partner, in Elko, NV on November 2, 1963.
Spring Glen, Utah, is where Frank’s roots lie deep. Here, working alongside his father on their family farm, he cultivated not just the land but a remarkable work ethic — an ethic he lovingly instilled in the generations that followed. His dedication to his nation called him to serve in the military as an MP in The Presidio of San Francisco. Later, he returned to his beloved Spring Glen and dedicated years to the Utah Power & Light at the Carbon Plant.
Always a pillar of strength, Frank ensured his children pursued education, supporting their collegiate dreams wholeheartedly. In retirement, he played a crucial role in modernizing Spring Glen’s irrigation as the president of the Spring Glen Canal Company. His days were filled with passion for his farm, the beautiful garden he nurtured alongside his wife, and the ever-entertaining skirmishes with the local deer. Despite the challenges — including a severe farming accident in 2015 — Frank’s resilience and zest for life shone through, proving his indomitable spirit.
To many, Frank was a beacon of humor, intelligence, and wit. His welcoming smile made everyone feel cherished and valued. At the heart of his universe was his beloved family — the shared dinners, festive holidays, adventurous camping trips, and lively game nights.
He leaves behind a legacy through his wife, Lee Saccomanno; children Natalie, Lisa, Frank, and Bernedette; grandchildren Frank A., Isaac E., Abbie, and Jared J.; his sister, Erna Lee Porter; as well as a host of brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He joins in eternal peace his treasured parents, siblings Mary Ann Biljanic and Frances Hanson, as well as his dear friend and cousin, Hughy Saccomanno.
We will come together to celebrate Frank’s remarkable journey on Saturday, August 19, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. at Mitchell Funeral Home in Price. Family and friends are invited to share memories and condolences an hour before the service. His earthly body will find rest at Price City Cemetery, Price, Utah.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Saccomanno family. We also extend our gratitude to Dr. Etzel and the team at Castleview Hospital for their unwavering care and support during Frank’s time there. May we all find solace in the memories shared and the love that Frank brought into each of our lives.
