Frank "Butch" Anthony Lagalo of Saginaw, Michigan
Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend passed away unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, December 24, 2022. He was 76 years old. Frank Anthony Lagalo was born on August 15, 1946, in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late Anthony and Clementine (Carfora) Lagalo. He met the love of his life, Brenda Lee Elliott, when she moved into their neighborhood living two doors down from Butch. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage of February 23, 1973, in Saginaw; she survives him. As a young man he worked for Illinois Shade/Graber as a shipping and receiving and forklift operator. Butch then went to work for Mike's Wrecker Service as a tow truck driver, eventually becoming the yard master and retiring in 2013 with over 30 years of loyal and dedicated service. The role of his lifetime was to be a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed traveling and found peace and tranquility in camping and fishing. His little piece of heaven was tinkering and intricately building his train set. He will forever be remembered for being dependable and selfless to anyone in need, for his wonderful sense of humor and thoughtfulness, his ability to keep everything organized and in its particular place, and for truly living an amazing life filled with many beautiful memories and stories.
