Francis “Frank” Leslie Davey died Saturday, January 23, 2016 of complications from ALS. Beloved husband of Elaine (Bennett) Davey and father to Beth Rosso (Rick), Frank Davey (Lisa Ford), and Laura Banmiller (Pate.) Loving grandfather to Ben, Sam and Drew Rosso, Will and Sasha Davey, and Alex, Pate and Max Banmiller. Beloved brother to Bonnie (Al) Rae, Allan (Ann) Davey, and Maureen Walker (Charlie Lynch). Frank was born in 1941, lived in Baltimore as a child and moved to Abington, PA in 1954. Frank graduated from Abington HS (1959) and the United States Naval Academy (1963). Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a Naval Officer. He was a proud veteran who served on active duty for six years including 3 WESTPAC deployments during the Vietnam War. He then served 17 additional years as a reserve officer and retired as a Captain in 1986. When he left active duty, he attended Temple Law School and graduated in 1972. He practiced law for a few years and then joined his brother and father-in-law in 1977 to run John Evans Sons, INC, in Lansdale, PA, where he remained until his retirement in 2014. Family and friends were always his number one priority. Frank embraced life while enjoying his large family and circle of friends. He coached CYO sports and volunteered his talents in support of the Catholic Church in many ways. He served as a Worcester Township Supervisor for 10 years, and served on the Board of Directors for Chestnut Hill College for multiple terms. He loved to travel, read, sail and spend time at the beach. He was a lifelong learner who loved to try new things with Elaine always at his side. Frank’s integrity was witnessed by all who knew him. Through the outpouring of love and support he received during his illness, he and his family learned the extensive number of people that considered Frank a role-model, mentor, and friend.
