Frank O. Zaragoza
January 11, 1946 - August 5, 2019
Always ready with a new joke to share who will be missed by many
Frank was born in Manila, Philippines, to Adele and Jose Zaragoza, both Filipinos. Frank and his brother Richard and sister Debra were raised in Manila, Philippines. In 1960, he left the Philippines and traveled to California. In 1970, he met and married Celedonia (Cely) Mejia in Hawthorne, California. A job with Rockwell/Boeing brought him to the Southern California area. He worked on the Space Shuttle program and held various positions with Rockwell/ Boeing over those years. After 36 years with The Boeing Company, he retired, did some travelling, attended car shows, spent time with his children, family, and loving dogs. Collecting aerospace and commercial model aircraft, caring for his dogs and cabbitzing with friends and family were some of Frank’s favorite activities. He will be missed by many.
Frank is survived by his daughter Michelle (42) of Whittier, son Jeffery (41) of Los Angeles, sisters, Debra Haque (Zaragoza) of Crestline, CA, Jocelyn Zaragoza Lee and Janice Zaragoza, Sister-in-law LaVerne, and both Debra and LaVerne’s children, grandchildren and great-grandson.
