On Sunday, April 11, 2021, Frank J. Fioritto took his last ride to the Pearly Gates. After suffering from dementia for a few years, the Good Lord welcomed him home.
Frank was born in Toledo, Ohio, where he graduated from Clay High School in 1968. He attended the University of Toledo where he met his wife of 48 years, Michele Caserta, and graduated in 1982 alongside his brother Michael. Frank and Michele were married September 9, 1972 in the Toledo Cathedral. Frank started his own business, Fioritto Accounting and Tax Service, based out of his house, with his brother Mike, and it is still running today in Oregon, Ohio. Frank was a member of the Zenobia Shriners and rode in their motorcycle unit in many parades throughout Ohio and Michigan. Frank was heavily involved in the International Festival in Toledo for many years and was part of the River East Revitalization Association to improve the community. He was a part of the Alba Club in Toledo and the Italian-American Club and National Italian-American Sports Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, having great pride in his Italian heritage and promoting that in his children and grandchildren. In 1990, Frank followed his dreams and moved his family to Las Vegas where he started Fioritto Financial and Tax Service. In 1992, Frank started up Next Day Tax Service, which changed the tax return industry immensely, doing business in casinos and offices throughout Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Laughlin.
Frank was a man of incredible courage, generosity, and energy. He followed his dreams and worked hard to make them happen, no matter the ups and downs and challenges that came with them. Frank was always willing to help people get back on their feet and gave many second chances, even opening his home to many to live in for months at a time. Frank believed in working hard and playing hard and was always the life of the party and made friends wherever he went. Frank's presence was felt far and wide and his loss will resound through more than one community.
Frank is survived by his wife Michele, his son Nicholas (Brandi) and their children Joseph and Michael, son Antonio (Shauna) and their children, son Vincent, sister Rita Ehmann (Robert), and brother Michael (Jama), along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces.
Frank was preceded in death by both of his parents, Joseph and Maria.
Memorial services are yet to be determined.
