Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As the Mayor of Delran, I am saddened by the loss of Frank DiLuzio, who gave so much to Delran Township and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.  Frank served as a member of the Delran Recreation Advisory Committee for many years before becoming Chairman in 2003 and retiring in 2012.  The annual Easter egg hunt which was attended by hundreds of children from the Township was one of the many activities planned by Frank and his leadership on the Recreation Advisory Committee.  Frank also played a major part in the annual Delran Tree Lighting ceremony arriving on the Fire Truck in his Santa suit to the delight of many young boys and girls.  Frank would then take his place in Santa’s chair and listen for hours to the children’s wish list for Christmas.  Frank never complained or hurried any of the children even though he was quite warm under his red suit.

Frank was also a football and baseball coach for the Delran Athletic Association for more than thirty-eight years as well as a football commissioner.  Delran Township was proud to name the football field in Summerhill for Frank in 2003.

Frank gave a new meaning to the word “volunteer” and as I said before will be truly missed by all who knew him.

I extend my sincerely condolences to the DiLuzio family.
