The Julie A. Bryant Foundation is saddened to announce that foundation beneficiary Frank A. Napoli, of Cranberry Township, PA, passed away on Tuesday, February 7, 2017.
Napoli, 63, was first diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive and fast-spreading form of brain cancer, in February 2014. A second tumor was later discovered on his brain stem that was more resistant to treatment. His condition forced him to give up his position in August 2015 as chief financial officer of Cygnus Manufacturing Co., a precision products and components maker in Saxonburg.
Frank and Michele Napoli were married for 35 years and have three grown daughters who live in the Pittsburgh area. The foundation contributed $1,000 in Giant Eagle gift cards in August 2016 and several additional gifts since then, including household necessities from Costco, to help the Napoli family.
