Francesco Costa left us on June 27, 2021. He was born in Eritrea, Africa and raised in Messina, Sicily before immigrating to the US as a young teen.

Frank was proud of his service in the US Army where he was a Military Policeman.

After gaining citizenship, and starting a family, Frank, a/k/a “Bari” was the proud owner of Bari Pizzeria for 34 years. The customers from the neighborhood became his extended family and it brought great pleasure to him to tell stories and serve multi-generations. He was often giving advice even when not asked.

Frank’s greatest love was his children and grandchildren. He was a devoted father to his son Sebastian Costa (Carteret) and daughter Angelina Costa Frankovic (Little Silver). There was no greater love shown to his grandchildren than Nonno, PopPop could give. He is survived by his children, his adored grandchildren Jack, Anna and Francesca Frankovic and Adrian and Francesco DeJesus and his sister Santina Lombardo.

Frank was an exceptional man, hardworking and generous to others. He will be deeply missed by many friends and family.

Visitation will be Thursday, July 1st from 5 to 8 pm at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank, New Jersey. Entombment will be private.
