Francis E. Millet, 78

Francis E. Millet, 78, former resident of Whitehall, died on February 17, 2008 at Albany Medical Center after a brief illness, with his family at his side.  Frank was received into the loving embrace of God and Our Blessed Mother.

 

 Born on March 11, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pa., he was the son of the late John I. and Mary (Kelly) Millet.

 

 He was a graduate of LaSalle Institute and received his B.S. in philosophy at Villanova University and his M.B.A. at Siena College. A veteran of the U. S. Navy, Frank served during the Korean War era. He was an officer at Key Bank for over 25 years and a member of the bank’s Centurion Club. In retirement, he remained active in church activities, golfing and bowling.  He lived most of his life in Whitehall and most recently, resided in Latham, NY where he attended the Eddy DayBreak and remained active socially, going out to dinner, the movies and shows and traveling to visit family and taking trips to Niagara Falls and to New York City to see the Yankees. In the fall, he traveled to Oregon for his granddaughters wedding held at a vineyard where he danced the night away under the stars with his five children.

 

Frank was married to Jane Godfrey in 1957 and they raised five children in a warm and loving home.  Frank’s strong faith along with his love, compassion and respect for others was evident in all aspects of his life together with Jane. He not only was a loving husband, father and friend, he gave himself tirelessly and unselfishly to his family and church. Over the years, he dedicated his time and talents to Our Lady of Angels and Our Lady of Hope Parishes, serving as an active member of the Men’s Choir and the Knights of Columbus.  He served on other community service organizations, including the Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club.

 

 Frank is predeceased by his loving wife, Jane, his parents, his brother John and his granddaughter, Audney Borden. 

 

 He is survived by his five children and their families, Jim and Donna Millet, Kathy and Peter Marthy, Jane and Kris Noonan, Eileen and Brian Borden and John and Stacey Millet; 12 grandchildren; his sisters, Mary Aguirre and Joan Hick, and his brothers, Joseph Millet and Richard Millet, and many nieces and nephews.

 

 A Mass of Christian Burial was conducted on Feb. 20, at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church at 9 Wheeler Avenue  in Whitehall, with Rev. Michael Flannery, Pastor, officiating.  Interment will be in the spring at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.

 

 

 

 Family and friends called at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street, Whitehall, New York on Feb. 19.

 

 Following the funeral mass, family and friends were invited to the Parish Hall at the church for a time of fellowship and refreshments.

 

 Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Frank’s name to Parkinson’s Disease Research Fund of Albany Medical Center, c/o Dr. Eric Molho, 47 New
