Frank Cedar Battaglia
May 14, 1929 -July 28, 2019
Concord, North Carolina

Frank Cedar Battaglia “90” passed away peacefully at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Rick and Michelle in Concord, NC. On a Sunday, the Lord’s day of rest, he entered the kingdom of heaven into the arms of his Lord and Savior. We are happy that he is reunited with the love of his life (Kay) of 65 years, and many family and friends.

Frank was born May 14, 1929 in Kane, Pennsylvania to Joseph and Agnes (Cedar) Battaglia and was the younger of two children. He graduated from Kane High School in 1947, then served in the Army at the rank of Sergeant from 1950- to 1952. He met his love of his life in Kane, PA (Kay Rudler). Kay and Frank were married on December 23, 1950 and loved one another for 65 years, until she passed away in his arms peacefully. They had three sons who they adored and loved throughout their lives.

Frank worked at Bell of Pennsylvania for over 35 years and was an active member of the Telephone Pioneers of America. Throughout his life, he was dedicated to church, his wife, and family. Frank lived in Kane, PA; Bradford, PA; Warren, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Bluffton; SC, and his last earthly stop was Concord, NC.

Frank (better known as Pa Pa, Dad, Pops, Uncle, and Brother) had a love for life that was contagious. “If you ever met him, you loved him.” He was a disciple of Jesus Christ and lived his life serving others. He had a light that shined bright and was the life of any gathering. His humor and spirit will be missed. Frank would often call you by the wrong name or give you his own nick name. He was a man of great integrity, a man who was a role model of how to be a great husband, father, and friend. He showed us how to love and serve others by his actions, and loved and was so proud of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Frank was a special man and we were honored to call him Dad/Papa. His legacy will live forever and he will be missed. Ciao Pa Pa!

Frank was preceded in death by his parents and loving wife, Kay.

He is survived by Edward O. Battaglia, Frank C. Battaglia, and Richard W. Battaglia, and their wives, Maureen, Nancy, and Michelle Battaglia; his older sister Bertha Jane Vesling; six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

Special thanks to the men and the women of Levine Cancer Institute who provided such love and care. He loved each of you and appreciated your friendship.

We also would like to thank Epworth and Bluffton United Methodist Church for the love and friendships and all the great memories.

In lieu of flowers we would encourage donations to Epworth United Methodist Church or Bluffton United Methodist (Bluffton, SC) church in his honor.

Celebration of life services will be held at Epworth United Methodist Church on September 7, 2019 at 11 am and a reception and lunch will follow in Fellowship Hall at 1030 Burrage Road NE, Concord, NC 28025.

Frank’s final resting place will be at Mount Tabor Cemetery Kane, Pennsylvania.

Cabarrus Funeral, Cremation & Cemetery is serving the Battaglia family.
