Frank considered one of his great accomplishment being happily married for over 51 years.

Frank worked for many years as a Credit Manager for Marshall Industries until is retirement in 1991.

Frank and Barbara lived in Everett and raised their three children. It was after Frank’s retirement that they decided to move to their summer home in Bristol NH on Newfound Lake. It is there that Frank enjoyed his passion of gardening and being outside in nature. Frank also work at a part time job in a local store where he eventually become a wine connoisseur assisting in the Wine Department. But more important than his job, he was loved by the customers because Frank was friendly, fun and just plain thoughtful to all.

Frank’s family was his life and he loved nothing more than to be with them as he was on his last day. He is survived by his wife of 51 years Barbara (Blanchard) Goodick and his three children Ellen Spelta of Lynn, Franklyn Goodick of Lynn and Melissa and her husband David Donahue of Peabody.
