This website has been established to raise funds for the final burial expenses for Frank Paccassi. Frank was a funny, brilliant man who devoted his life to serving others and to providing support to his family. He was a teacher and a Baha’i pioneer who served the Faith as a pioneer for 52 years. He was married to Pat for over 67 years. He and his family used all of their resources to remain at their pioneering post, which leaves no funds for his funeral expenses. At the urging of their dear friends, the Paccassi family has agreed to have this site collect funds for Frank’s funeral. The account is managed by the Baha’i Group of Sonoma County South #2 and all funds received by the organization will be transferred to Pat Paccassi to cover the costs associated with Frank’s burial.
Frank’s passing and his important service was recently noted in correspondence from the National Spiritual Assemblies of Baha’is of the United States, the International Teaching Centre, and the Universal House of Justice. He also received loving messages from the National Spiritual Assemblies of Trinidad and Tobago and the U.S Virgin Islands and Alaska.
Questions may be sent to Michael Fanning, Treasurer, of the Sonoma County South #2Baha’i Group.
Those who contribute $25 or more and wish to, will receive a hard copy photo of Frank and Pat, along with a personal note of thanks from the Paccassi family. Be sure to include your mailing address so that these items can be sent by mail to your home or if you prefer to have these items emailed to you, please let us know that this is your preference.
