Francesco Moschelli, age 80, passed away peacefully on November 28, 2016. He was born August 5, 1936 in Detroit, the son of Salvatore & Elizabeth (Cosenza) Moschelli and brother to Anthony, Litterio, Johanna (Steve) Rukavina, and John (Patty) Moschelli. Frank graduated from St. Rose of Lima High School in 1955. After a 10 year stint at Bower Roller Bearing, Frank was self-employed for over 30 years as a cement contractor and builder and retired in 1999. Survived by his loving wife of 42 years Annette, and his children Salvatore and George Moschelli.

Though he never intended it, Frank's life was defined by his role as a mentor and caretaker. A surprising number of young men, including ex-convicts, learned the meaning of hard work and commitment from working with "Uncle Frank". Every trip he made had at least one detour to check on friends and family, most of the time to bring something to someone who needed help. These were not premeditated purposeful deeds, these were the natural behaviors of the man.

Frank was always determined to connect with everyone he met; once he discovered any information about someone, he would list everyone he knew or every job he did that could be related to that thing until he found some common ground.

Visitation for Frank will be held Friday, December 2, 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Kaul Funeral Home, 28433 Jefferson Ave. Frank will be in-state at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church, 21201 E 13 Mile Rd., St Clair Shores. 9:30 am Saturday, December 3rd, followed by a 10 am funeral Mass.
