A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, January 16th, at St.John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Plaquemine, at 1 p.m., with burial to follow in Grace Memorial Park.

Mr. Pasqua was the AP while my three sisters and I attended PHS. He knew us all by name and made it a point to speak to us everyday. I remember being late to school many mornings and having to go see him to get my tardy slips. He was always firm, but in a fatherly way. He had a way of making you feel like you were important and capable of greatness. Such an important quality in an educator! I ran into him at the post office last year while I was there with my husband and three boys. I hadn’t seen him in probably 15 years. He recognized me, remembered my sisters and me by name, and we struck up a conversation. He told me how much he loved running into his old students and seeing how they turned out. He was happy to hear that I became a teacher, and he talked about how much he was enjoying retirement. I left that day feeling happy to have seen him again. He had a way of making others feel good. What a legacy to leave behind!

My husband was also going through treatment at Honor Hospital and was on the same schedule as Frank. I heard all about my husband’s new friend Frank. My husband looked forward to talking with him - he was a bright light during a difficult time. Prayers to your family ❤

Always loved to see and talk to you.
Even after 49 years you could remember our games from 1971 at CHS.
You always had a wonderful smile and made strangers feel like friends.
Rest in Peace

I am so sorry for the family. I was born and lived in Plaquemine until I moved to Baton Rouge and now live in Prairieville, LA. I knew Frank from a long time ago. I will say a prayer that he go straight to Heaven.

Words cannot express how I felt about hearing the news of the transition of Frank. He was a God sent to my husband Gerald Trent. Their friendship was both professional and personal. To his family, heaven gained an angel. He and Gerald Trent are busy discussing sports and other current events. Rest well Frank.
You will truly be missed.

Frank was a favorite son of Plaquemine and made his mark in many places. I knew him and admired him as a person, coach, and player.
