A tribute-Frank Sadocha

September 11, 2006

A couple of months ago I ran across a blog that was offering the opportunity to sign up to honor a 9/11 victim on the 5 year anniversary. It continues to amaze me that this tragedy occured 5 years ago, it seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago in the same extrodinary breath. My tribute honors Frank Sadocha. Husband, Daddy, Son, friend, volunteer and so much more. Below is a brief bio and a short quote from his widow. Please take some time to pray for families and survivors throughout this week and when they come to mind.

Francis John Sadocha  
Huntington, NY United States  

World Trade Center – food service manager, Cantor Fitzgerald – submitted: 10/3/2001 8:39:31 AM

Frank John Sadocha was weeks away from his dream of opening his own restaurant on Long Island. He was training people to take over for him as manager of the food services division of Cantor Fitzgerald when the World Trade Center was attacked. “All he tried to do was to get us ahead,” said his wife, Nancy. Mr. Sadocha, who lived in Huntington with his wife and two daughters, did the catering for a local temple on weekends and sometimes weeknights, in addition to his job in the city. “He was very much in charge, and he knew catering so well,” his wife said. But as hard as he worked, Mr. Sadocha, 41, always had time for his daughters, Ashley, 5, and Kristy, 4. A few weeks ago, after they had enrolled the girls on soccer teams, Ashley said she didn’t want to play, that she wasn’t any good at soccer. Her father took her outside and worked with her. “He boosted her confidence,” Mrs. Sadocha said. “By the end of the weekend she said she couldn’t wait to play, and she told me, `Daddy said I was good.’ ” – submitted: 10/31/2001 10:13:34 PM
