Frank Salvatore Minozzi / November 14, 2013

Frank Salvatore Minozzi, age, 75, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013 at this home in Varina, surrounded by his loving family, his wife and three daughters.

Frank, affectionately and often-called Butch, will be remembered for his loving and compassionate personality, endless energy and quick wit.

Born in Utica, N.Y., he was the son of the late Frank Minozzi and Anna Longo Lebert. With strong family ties, Butch was proud of his Italian heritage and held special childhood memories of his maternal grandparents, Frank and Lena Longo and his godparents George of Mary Inserra as well as aunts and many cousins.

A graduate of John Marshall High School in Richmond, in 1959, he was employed by the US Postal Service from 1966 to 1992. After retiring from the post office, he served as the marketing/sales territory manager for Capitol News Agency.

He is survived by his wife, Mary Chambers Hodnett Minozzi, three daughters, Kim, Minozzi, Kelly Minozzi and Mary Glenn Minozzi, grandchildren, Ashley Larsen, Amber Healy and John Paul Ferrell. Additionally, he leaves his brother, Jan F. Minozzi, niece Jill Minozzi and nephews Jeff and Timothy Minozzi, who took an instrumental role in his care.

The Cremation Society of Virginia is servicing the family. A memorial service is being planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society.
