Francis Kaiser, 88, of West Hartford and formerly of Avon, passed away peacefully at home on May 27, 2017. Frank was born in Brooklyn, NY, on September 2, 1928, to Martin and Charlotte (Kullack) Kaiser. He attended Bishop Loughlin School in New York before enlisting and serving in the U.S. Army with the military police. He earned his B.A. from Seton Hall University, and after graduation, married the love of his life, Dorothy Sarjeant. They had eight children together. Frank worked for Pan American Airways for 34 years and ultimately became the Senior Vice President of Marketing. While at Pan American, Frank received an Advanced Management Degree from Harvard University. He moved on to Pan American World Services and, after his retirement, remained active in consulting for Pleasant Hawaiian Holidays. Frank also served on the board of Black Enterprises and conducted his own consulting practice. Frank's leisure time was spent playing basketball, tennis, and paddleball; he was also an avid reader and letter writer. He particularly enjoyed the time he spent with his grandchildren. Frank was an enthusiastic Yankees fan since childhood, to the chagrin of some of his Red Sox-loving grandchildren. Frank is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Dorothy; sons, William (Heidi), Dennis, and Timothy (Dora); daughters, Kathleen Hahn (Mark), Geralyn Leary (Robert), Janice Griffin (Mac), Dorothy Bouvier (Rob), and Maureen Carroll (James); brother, Leonard (Marion); sister, Charlotte DeVito; nineteen grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, Martin. The family would like to thank Brittany, Marie, and especially Agatha Ross, for the extraordinary care Frank received at Atria Hamilton Heights, and also Masonicare and Dr. Matthew Colliton, for all their kindness and compassion. Frank's family will receive friends on Wednesday, May 31 from 4-7PM at the Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Road, Avon. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, June 1 at 10AM at the Church of St. Ann, 289 Arch Road, Avon. Guests are asked to go directly to church in the morning. Burial with military honors will follow at St. Ann Cemetery in Avon. In lieu of flowers, donations in Frank's name may be made to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, P.O. Box 849168, Boston, MA 02284-9168. To share an online condolence with the family, please visit www.carmonfuneralhome.com
