Frank Elliott Consolvo

December 2, 1919 - September 28, 2015

Frank E. Consolvo, 95, passed away Monday, September 28, 2015. He was born in Norfolk, Virginia to the late George and Lilla Harrison Consolvo. He is also predeceased by his wife of 20 years, Audrey Mae Sawyer Consolvo; brothers, Earnest, Walter, John, Robert, Wilson, Allen, Dougie, George Jr., and Herbert Consolvo; sisters, Betty Consolvo, Emily Consolvo, Mabel Huey, and Mary Dore.


Mr. Consolvo grew up in old “Atlantic City”, now known as Ghent. He joined the Navy at a very young age to help his family, which consisted of 14 children. Frank served in the United States Navy for over 20 years with distinction aboard three aircraft carriers, the Langley, Wasp, and Antietam during WWII. After retiring from the USN, Frank immediately went to work at the Naval Air Rework Facility as an electrician. He received congratulations from the USN upon his retirement from the Federal Service in 1981 after more than 44 years of faithful military and civilian service. He was a hard-working man who loved his family. In his free time, Frank was a voracious reader and very self-educated; he could always share knowledge and remember significant life events.


Left to cherish his memory is his daughters, Carol Consolvo Alley (Scott), and Paula Christie Harrison (Roland); grandsons, Dustin Wayne Alley, and Brent Harrison; granddaughter, Christie Harrison Tracy.
