Nick V DeFrank

January 27, 1952 — January 19, 2024

New Lenox

Nick V. DeFrank, age 71, born in Chicago Heights, Illinois, passed away on January 19, 2024 in the arms of his loving wife of 20 years, Maria (Mancini) DeFrank. He is also survived by his sister Tami DeFrank, his children Nicole DeFrank and Mike DeFrank (Katie), his grandchildren, Nicholas Trolian, Alyssa Trolian, Joey Garofalo, Anthony DeFrank, Adriana DeFrank and his grand-dog Bootsie (Bunner) DeFrank.  He is predeceased by his daughter Stacey (DeFrank) Garofalo and his parents, Nick DeFrank Jr, and Katy (Vaccaro) Cimaroli. Nick was a one-in-a-million man who was very generous with his love, and his time, and always took care of everyone around him. He will forever be remembered for his kindness, unique sense of humor, sharp wit, and how fiercely he loved. We know he’s watching over us while sipping margaroonies from the pool bar in heaven. We will miss you and we love you so big!
