Obituary: Frank E. Sudell, 89, from Greenwich



Longtime Greenwich resident Frank E. Sudell died on March 10, one week away from his 90th birthday. Frank attended Greenwich High School ’49 where he wrote in football, basketball and baseball.

After graduating from GHS, he immediately enlisted in the Air Force and attended RadioSchool to become a radio technician. After leaving the Air Force as a First Lieutenant, he worked for Post Road Iron Works and then served his community as a Greenwich Police Officer for six years.

Soon after, he met his 59-year-old wife, Dorothy, at the AMF. Frank then embarked on a new career as a car salesman with Pray Automobile and Toyota of Greenwich for more than 50 years. This career has allowed his charismatic personality to shine by meeting new people every day.

Frank was a faithful servant of the Lord and a man of great faith. He has served as Eucharistic minister and reader at the Church of the Sacred Heart in Port Chester and at St. Paul’s Parish in Greenwich. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus in Greenwich and was honored by the Greenwich Old Timers’ Athletic Association.

Frank enjoyed fly fishing very much traveling in Quebec, Montana and, of course, the Housatonic Rivers, often as much as he could. Saltwater fishing was another hobby he enjoyed with his family, in addition to playing YMCA racquetball, fast softball, golf and shuffleboard. He never did anything halfway that included his love of cooking; he was always the life of the party and quick with his jokes.

Frank has been married for 59 years to his sweetheart “Dottie”. Together they raised 3 children, welcomed 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren into the world. You would always see him at lacrosse, football, baseball, field hockey, golf, and youth bowling, high schools and colleges. Always with a video camera in hand and leading the cheers with a smile. He was very proud of each of his grandchildren and felt so blessed to be a part of their lives.

Frank was predeceased by his parents Helen Honulik Colucci and Michael Sudell and his beloved grandson Steven Sudell. He is survived by his wife Dottie, his daughters Charlene MacDonald (Brian) and Debbie Dunster (Will) and his son Paul (Amy). And also by his grandchildren Jimmy Dunster (Dani), Colin Dunster (Sally), Shawn Dunster, Derek, Anne Dunster, Tyler and his great grandchildren Dillon, Skylar and Hudson.

He will be remembered by his family, friends and family of all ages for his outgoing personality and “gift of chatter” as well as his sense of humor and his many jokes, songs and understudies.
