Obituary for Francis X. Synnamon Jr.

Francis X. “Frank” Synnamon passed away peacefully on Monday, April 22 in Reading Hospital in West Reading, PA. He was the husband of Judith (Gerofsky) Synnamon, whom he married on August 25, 1974.
Born in Philadelphia, PA, Frank was a son of the late Francis X. and Anna M. (Crump) Synnamon and was a proud graduate of St James catholic High School in 1964. After graduating high school Frank enlisted in the army and served in the 82nd Airborne Division as a paratrooper. Frank was honorably discharged after serving and then went on to attend Penn State University in State College where he fell in love with not only college football and the Rathskeller, but also his future wife Judith. For most of his career Frank worked in computer hardware engineering and support but enjoyed his last years working as a part-time bus driver until he fully retired in 2020. Frank enjoyed watching his beloved Nittany Lions and Philadelphia Eagles, tending to his yard, cooking and spending time with his wife and family. Frank was an avid collector of many things over his life including coins, stamps and comic books. Frank was a patriot who was proud of his military service and continued on supporting his community by his involvement in staffing his local polling place.
Along with his wife of almost 50 years, Judith, Frank is survived by his two children, Meg R. (Synnamon) Staffeldt, Wayne, and David F. Synnamon, Breinigsville; four grandchildren, Leah S. and Isaac J. Staffeldt and Sylvia G. and Henry D. Synnamon.
He was predeceased by his parents and siblings, Raymond Synnamon, Michael Synnamon and Ann (Synnamon) Scarpato.
