Dearest Mrs. Secreto and family, sending my thoughts and prayers for you at this most difficult time. I remember Mr. Secreto helping me with insurance questions when he wasn’t even my insurance man. He was just so helpful from the kindness of his heart.
Sincerely,

My sympathy to Frank’s family on their loss.
Having worked with Frank at Belmont Tech. in the college’s early
days and later as agent for my insurer, I came to know and respect
him as a gentleman. Frank was always polite and courteous, in stressful
situations as well as lighthearted moments. We have lost a genuinely
good person, a gentleman.
May he rest in peace.

My prayers and sincerest condolences are my wish for Mr. Secreto and his family. He was an important contributor to my time as a student at Belmont Technical College in 1972 to 1974 and was one of the first people I visited during trips back to visit my parents. His influence in completing my degree program in Accounting helped me when I transitioned into a career in the hotel/travel industry and eventually into a position with a firm in the Chicago area.
May he rest in peace and be remembered for everything he did for those he came in contact with over the years.
