Collings Foundation

A dear friend of the Collings Foundation and WWII veteran Frank Tedesco passed away on February 29, 2020 at the age of 99. Born and raised in Weymouth, Frank graduated from Weymouth High School. He went on to further his education, by receiving a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska.

Frank proudly served his country in the United States Army Air Corps during WW II as a B24 Liberator Pilot. Over the years, he received many awards for his military service, most recently in May of 2019, Frank was awarded a high medal of honor, the Legion D’Honneur for his service alongside France, during WW II. Before retirement, Frank worked for many years as an Aircraft Engineer for General Electric.
He spent countless hours volunteering: building the Spirit of Massachusetts in Boston, restoring a B24J Liberator with the Collings Foundation, in Stow, MA and public speaking educating the public on events of WW II. Frank’s passion for photography was evident by his numerous features in publications. On the weekends, he loved to sing and perform at clubs and piano bars. Frank frequented the Wings of Freedom tour and the Collings Foundation's living history events over many years. He was always the epitome of "The Greatest Generation."

Frank was a kind, selfless, and loving man who cared for his family. He will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to have known him.
