Frank “Frankie” Lott Zeidler Sr.
Last night, members of Newport Fire Company held a drive-through viewing for Frank Zeidler. With the pandemic still affecting the ability for people to come and pay their respects, the Newport Fire Company utilized Station 44 to allow cars to drive through to pay their respects to Frank and to his family.
Frankie was a member of Newport Fire Company for 58 years. He was a life member and past President of the Organization. Frank was present for the building of both Stations 44 and 88 and made sure he came to every event he could. Members young and old loved to talk and especially listen to Frankie when he came into the station. He would always ask every single member how their day was and would laugh along the way. We will all miss him.
“Frank Lott Zeidler, Sr. of Bensalem, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 21, 2020. He was 87 years old.
Born in Philadelphia, Frank was a resident of Bensalem for the last 60 years. He owned and operated Falcon Construction for over 35 years. He was a lifetime member of the Newport Fire Company Station 44. Frank was also a devoted member of the Third Reformed Presbyterian Church for 52 years, serving as an Elder for most of those years. He was a true “Mr. Fix it”, always willing to help others in need, whether it was doing repairs for family and friends or supporting his community by building the Newport Fire Station.
Frank’s greatest joy and love was spending time with his family. He cherished Sunday dinners and Saturday sleepovers with his grandchildren, Frank was a true family man, who was adored by everybody and will be greatly missed.
Frank will be sadly missed by his beloved wife of 60 years, Barbara (Henry). He is also survived by his children: Frank L. Zeidler, Jr. (Susan), Kim Evalt and Beth Baldwin (Brian); his sister: Dorothy Bates (Jack); and his grandchildren: Jessica, Ashley (David), Adam (Liz), Tara, Zachary, and several nieces and nephews.
