Frankjohn Altomari, 54, of Orlando, Florida, passed away on January 27 after a courageous battle with tinnitus affecting his mental health.
Frank was born on June 25, 1969 to Adrienne and Jerry Altomari in Mount Vernon, New York. After Frank graduated from Scarsdale High School in 1987 he went on to study psychology at SUNY Purchase, earning his degree in 1992.
After moving from New York to Florida, Frank became a social worker and spent decades advocating for children in central Florida. He spent the last years of his career at the Foundation for Foster Children in Winter Park. At the Foundation, Frank worked to enhance the lives of children through support and advocacy, giving them opportunities for a brighter future. Generations of children had better lives due to Frank’s passionate commitment to their welfare and well-being.
The love of Frank’s life was his wife of 17 years, Nikaury Muñoz. Together they biked many trails, kayaked through Florida’s wetlands, danced at concerts, traveled near and far, and built a beautiful life together. Nikaury gave Frank the greatest gift of his life: the opportunity to become a step-father to her two extraordinary children, Adrian Bailon and Samantha Bailon.
