    Frank DiVesta was a truly great man and cherished friend. He possessed an easy charm and gracious dignity, a brilliant mind, a classy essence, a kind and compassionate heart, and a refreshing sense of humor. The impact of his excellence in teaching and presenting and his words of wisdom will long be remembered, only second to his warm and caring nature and his love of life. Until we meet again, dear friend, may you Rest In Peace with the other angels.
