Frank L. Sturgeon, 68, of North East, died on Monday, May 4, 2020, surrounded by his family, in the comfort of his home. Frank was born on September 17, 1951, in Harrisburg, Pa., the son of the late Earl and Jeanne (Wolf) Sturgeon. Graduating from Central Dauphin East High School in Harrisburg, Frank moved onto college, earning a B.S. degree in Health Science at Slippery Rock University.

Moving to the Erie area, they settled in North East and raised two children. Frank did substitute teaching in Erie and spent his 42 year career working in the manufacturing industry as a CNC machinist. Frank also coached baseball at NE Little League. Loving Lake Erie, Frank enjoyed fishing on his boat and cruising on his Sea Doo. He was a family man who enjoyed watching his children and granddaughter in their activities. A talented DIY, Frank could meticulously design and construct, turning his house into a cherished home. He is survived by his wife, Nancy; daughter, Kelly Craven (Steve) of North East; son, Christopher Sturgeon (Heather) of Wadsworth, Ohio; and granddaughter, Annina Sturgeon. Frank’s family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to the Community Nursing Services of North East, especially Ashley, for their care, support, and professionalism. Private interment will be held at St. Gregory Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Community Nursing Services of North East, Hospice, 7 Park Street, North East, PA 16428.
