Frank P. Coughlin
Frank P. Coughlin, 79, father and grandfather, died on January 9, 2013. He is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Frank Jr. and Patti Coughlin, three daughters, Caroline, Debbie and Donna Coughlin, two granddaughters, Elizabeth and Nicole Coughlin.
Frank was born the son of William and Eileen Coughlin in Dublin, Ireland.
He came to this country in 1958 and settled into the California life where he stayed until 1998 when he moved to Arizona.
Frank was a General Contractor in California and in Arizona did Commercial Construction Management.
He was a strong-willed, self-made man with an extremely hard work ethic.
Frank was a generous, gentle, loving man. He was a natural at sports, an accomplished artist, an avid golfer, played an electronic keyboard, could play a mean game of darts and would recite Irish poetry at the drop of the hat. In his younger years he raced Grand Prix motorcycles.
Frank believed in living “the moment” to its fullest. He will be greatly missed but his spirit will live on in the hearts of so many people whose lives he touched. A memorial is planned for February.
