Francis A. “Zom” “Frank” Zambito

Francis A. “Zom” “Frank” Zambito of Holley passed away peacefully after a long illness on Dec. 27, 2021, with his family by his side.

Francis was predeceased by his wife, Delores; mother, Josephine; father, Antonino; brother, Frankie; and sister, Annie, both in childhood.

He is survived by his children: Tony (Patty), Jim (Cathy) and Marie; and  grandchildren: Nikki (Jen), Matt, Andrew (Anna), and Justin.

Frank worked with his father farming in Elba in his youth, then went on to Lipton’s, A&P, Owens Illinois, GE, and Kleen Brite in his later years. He is probably best remembered in Holley as the owner of the Holley Liquor Store for many years.

His joys in life were always his wife, children, and grandchildren. Family gatherings were everything to him, and we consider ourselves lucky to have had one more Christmas with him. He joins his beloved Delores, whom he has missed dearly for seven years.

Services will be announced at a later date due to the COVID spike. We hope to be able to receive friends and loved ones when we can hug freely again.

In his memory, please consider a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Frank’s arrangements have been entrusted to the Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc. of Holley, NY.
