Frank J. Carilli, Jr., 76, of Conneaut Lake, died Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at Embassy of Park Avenue, Meadville.


He was born August 29, 1945 in Pittsburgh, a son of Frank J. Carilli, Sr. and Bernice Marley Carilli.  He married Judith Metts November 25, 1988.


Frank was a 1964 graduate of Chartiers Valley High School and was a Veteran of the Vietnam War, serving in the U.S. Army from 1965 to 1967 with the 101st Airborne Division.


Frank worked in various machine shops over the years.  He was a lifetime member of the VFW, enjoyed fishing, muscle cars, wintering in Florida, and was an avid Steelers fan.  He always had a joke to tell and a funny limerick to sing.
