Francis “Frank” Michael Mastromano, 91, of Livingston, died November 13, 2018, at The Villa senior care facility in Florham Park. He was born and raised in Guttenberg, New Jersey, and graduated Weehawken High School in 1945. After graduation he enlisted in the US Navy and served a year during WWII. He was recalled in 1951 during the Korean Conflict and served a short time. Frank graduated from Seton Hall University with a B.S. degree and went on to earn his Master’s degree from the NYU School of Business. In 1965, he married Karen Lynn Belcher of Kearny, New Jersey. They bought a home in Livingston, where they continued to reside. He began working with the RCA Records Division in New York City, transferred to Rockaway, New Jersey, as Plant Controller, and was later promoted to Manager of Information Systems (M.I.S.). He left RCA in 1974 to work for the Technicon Corporation in Tarrytown, New York, as Director of M.I.S., and was promoted to Vice President of M.I.S. He retired from Technicon in 1989. Frank joined the National Association of Accountants in 1958, becoming President of the Morristown Chapter in 1965, and also serving as a National Director. He received the Gold Medal Award for a technical manuscript that was published in the monthly NAA Journal. From his 20s on, Frank was an avid golfer who enjoyed playing, watching and talking about golf. As a homeowner, he became interested in gardening and was very handy around the house. He could fix everything, build anything, and over the years managed to amass an extensive tool and replacement parts collection that his wife has no idea what to do with! After retiring, Frank joined the New Jersey State Chrysanthemum Society, a garden club dedicated to growing and exhibiting “football” type mums. He performed many functions to support and promote the organization in local, state and national shows. Whatever Frank got involved with – he was all in. He stayed actively in touch with his boyhood kindergarten friends and their families. He volunteered at St. Raphael’s Catholic Church supporting the business office operations and serving on the finance committee. He was loving, patient, loyal, and generous with his time and knowledge. He had a great sense of humor, enjoyed good food and good times, truly cared for other people, and doted on the family pet cats. Preceded in death by his mother, Rose; his father, Salvatore; and two younger sisters, Rosemarie and Ann Mastromano. Frank is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Karen. Per Frank’s wishes, no visitations or funeral services were held. He was cremated and the ashes placed in the family mausoleum. He was respected and loved by many and will be greatly missed.
