Frank Joseph Aveni passed away peacefully at home in Florida surrounded by his family, at the age of 80 years old. 

Beloved husband of Kathleen L McLoughlin Aveni; father of sons James J Aveni and Frank M (Elaine) Aveni; grandfather to two cherished grandchildren Lorenzo and Geo Aveni; and brother to Nancy Aveni Slater.  Frank was born on August 16, 1942 in New Haven, CT to his parents Joseph and Josephine Aveni. 

Frank was the owner and operator of his own excavation business for forty-five years. A passionate lifelong musician, he was a talented guitarist, singer, and a member of multiple bands that played throughout the state. He loved cars, especially Corvettes, and was a National Corvette Restorers Society judge and member for forty years, and a Bloomington Gold judge for twenty-five years. He was a former officer of the Woodbridge Police Department, and a Woodbridge School District bus owner-operator for fifty years. 

Above all, Frank loved his wife Kathleen, and loved to tell the story of how they met, and how lucky he was to have her as his partner in his life. Services will be held at a later date to be determined by the family.  Arrangements entrusted with BALDWIN BROTHERS Funeral & Cremation Society-Spanish Springs, 352-480-5959.  Sentiments are encouraged at

    To my Uncle Frank, I always looked up to you. You were such a strong presence in our family, leading the way. You were my mom's biggest supporter and she lit up when she'd talk to you. The music legacy that you passed on to your boys is amazing. Every time I see a Corvette, I think of you. We will certainly feel the loss in our family. Aunt Kathy, Jim, and Frank, we are here with you grieving. We love you.
