My condolences to the entire Tucci family. I met Frank when he had a music store in Oaklyn NJ. I remember playing Steve Vai in his store with his son Chris (The Attitude Song) and Chris had a green Robin guitar. That led me to purchasing the other Robin guitar in the store (Robin Raider II) and eventually I ended up taking jazz guitar lessons with Frank. He was one of two guitar teachers whom taught me the most in my life and he even hired me to teach beginners on guitar at his store. It was the only job I ever had to this day that never felt like work. He definitely saw more in me than I did at the time and for that I will be forever grateful to him. I still have the Robin guitar and it is still my favorite guitar and I have owned it since 1987. May God bless him and his extended family and may he watch all over you from heaven. I just stumbled over this because my friend's uncle just passed away and I was looking for information on him.

My Man Pots and Pans", I heard you playing stairway to heaven and you never sounded so good. I've known our friend Frank since the late 70's when I worked for him at United Engineer's that was across from the Echelon Mall. From the 1st day we became friends (must have been an Italian thing). We opened The Mirage Casino in Vegas back in 89, fantastic trip. We had plans when Frank sorted out his health issues to go back to Vegas. Frank and I talked weekly and sometimes more than once. We always talked about old jobs, family and life. Frank loved his family, Lynn was the apple of his eye. Always saying how much he appreciated her help. Frank's son in law Chris which he loved equally would come to Frank's house and take care of his weekly pills. Frank said if I needed anthing Chris would be there in 5 minutes. Frank said he could not have a better son in law than Chris. He appreciated everything you two did for him. He loved the Thursday evening grocery shopping but I think he loved the resturants after shopping the most. Grandchildren, Gianna and Dominic... your Grandfather just loved the both of you very much. Gianna, your Grandfather just loved being at your wedding. He said he had a blast. He sent me a picture of the both of you at your wedding. He loved that you are a entrepreneur in the real-estate market. Dominic, your Grandfather said you are going to be a great guitarist. I think he will live inside you everytime you play. So tonight Celebrate his life as I will. I miss my Buddy already. I will see you down the road. A true friend is never truly gone. Their spirit lives on in the memories of those who loved them.

Frank and I have been co-workers, friends, and at times hell raisers together over the years. At times he was more like an older brother and I loved him. I will miss our phone calls and I am heart broken not to have been able to visit him before this turn in his health. To Franks daughter Lynn and her husband Chris and his son Chris my sincere condolences. He love you very much and appreciated all that you have done to assist him these past years. He was always proudly talking about his grand kids and loved them dearly too. Over the years I admit to being a bit of a groupie showing up at Franks gigs when he was playing in Philadelphia or in our local bar behind the Colonnade where we both lived for awhile. Our time working in Puerto Rico was another great time together. Frank would love to play the slot machines at either of the two hotel casinos we stay near. One time he hit the slots for several hundred dollars and took the entire team of us out for drinks. It ended up with many of us getting thrown in the pool at the outdoor bar. He was always generous and its been my honor to have known him and to be able to call him my friend. Rest in Peace Guitar Man. Until we meet again!!!
