Obituary of Frank D. Pirri
Frank D. Pirri (aged 89 and formerly of East Greenbush) died Sunday, September 2, 2018 at Seton Memorial in Round Rock, Texas. Frank was born in Albany and was a construction worker with the Laborers' Local 190 union. He had a great passion for the jitterbug and Big Band music, loved to tell a story, and made a mean meatball.
