Francis G. Lincks Jr., age 79, passed away at his home on February 9, 2022. He was born on October 12, 1942, in Manhattan, NY. He grew up in Valley Stream, NY and was a resident of Westbury, NY for 50 years. He resided in Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and made his permanent residence with his wife in Poinciana Village in The Villages, FL.
Frank is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Julie (Iannotti); sons, Joseph Lincks (Lynda), Frank Lincks (Jennifer); daughter, Julie Terrone (Don); 6 grandchildren, Lauren, Amanda, Emma, Vincent, Marisa, Anthony; brother, Stephen Lincks; and sister, Gina Dau.
Frank was a Navy Veteran who served on the fueling ship U.S.S. Severn. He was a member of the American Legion Post 347 in The Villages. He worked for the New York City District Council of Carpenters Union for his entire career. He was a classic car enthusiast and a member of The Villages Vintage Car Club. He loved Doo-Wop music and enjoyed attending as many driveway and rec. center concerts as often as he could.
He battled cancer and many health issues for more than 20 years, however he continuously fought to recover and spend as much time as possible with his wife. Frank greatly enjoyed his role as a loving grandfather to his 6 grandchildren and always made time to attend all their games, school concerts and other events they were involved in.
Frank has requested to be cremated. As a Military Veteran, his ashes will be interred at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL and that is to be scheduled at a later date.
The family would like to thank the nursing staff from Cornerstone Hospice for their attentive treatment in our home, their respectful care and professional assistance during this most difficult time. Frank will be remembered as a man who lived his life on his terms.
It was our privilege to get to know our neighbor Frank. He had a great sense of humor, had lots of stories to tell, and battled all that life threw at him with courage and without complaint. Of course, I’ll always remember our ‘date’ to hear his favorite doo wop group.
He is and will continue to be missed…the neighborhood will not be the same but we have great memories.
Carol and Dan
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family ❤️❤️
