globe as well as a great many international awards. He was both an adviser to Presidents and a
teacher to any who would learn. It has been said of Dr. Menolascino that “... some people come into
our lives, leave footprints on
our hearts, and we are never the same.”

Those who knew Frank Menolascino knew him to be a man of great passion. Alongside family and
friends, art and medicine topped his interests.
