Frank D'Amico Obituary

Frank Samuel D’Amico passed away on September 15, 2023, at the age of 80 in Byron Center, Michigan. He fought a long valiant battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Frank was born on May 14, 1943, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he lived his entire life. He was a proud husband, father, and grandfather, a Sicilian American, and a lifelong Catholic. 

Frank dedicated his career to public school education. He began as a student teacher in 1965 at Godfrey-Lee Public Schools. He remained with the district for over 40 years as a teacher, principal, and eventually the superintendent of schools. His commitment to education was recognized when he was inducted into the “Wall of Fame” in 2019. 

Frank’s personal educational journey began at St. Andrew and Immaculate Heart Elementary schools, Catholic Central High School, and Aquinas College. He received his master’s degree in educational leadership from Western Michigan University. 

Frank will be dearly missed by Nancy D’Amico, his loving spouse of nearly 45 years. He is also survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Anna and Stan Rosenburg, his daughter and son-in-law, Mara D’Amico and Michael Brouri, and his grandchildren, Nolan and Drew Rosenburg and Kareem Brouri-D’Amico. Additionally, he is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Sam D’Amico and Diane Niehof.
