Francis Gesumaria

Frank Gesumaria III of Newark, N.J. passed away on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020 at the age of 46.  Frankie was a special and caring person, full of love for others.

Frank’s career began as a Newark School substitute teacher before working for 23 years as a Program Coordinator, Special Events, at the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, 115 Clifton Avenue, Newark, N.J.

A loving individual whose priority was always his family, Frankie always took the initiative to ensure everyone was watched over everyday. Frankie always put everyone first in his life and had a special love for his two family dogs, Jake and Brody.  He also had a special interest in Harness Horse Racing and recently acquired an owners license for the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority enabling him to own and race Harness Horses at the Meadowlands Racetrack and tracks in other states.  He was lucky enough to be a part owner of a super harness horse “Manchego” which made him so proud and happy.
