  • Buried in Keresley?

    Hi there, I never knew Frank but I have just happened to stumble upon a grave matching his details and was curious so I have researched him. The grave in question is in Keresley, Coventry, UK as was merely wandering as to why he is buried in the area as I was surprised to see a Vietnam war vet buried here.

    Thanks, Dan

    I was only 7...but I still remember the day I found out you weren't coming home. That day will always be with me. I also remember the little things, like the oriental pajama's you sent me for Christmas. And the time you carried me to the Post hospital wrapped in a blanket (because we didn't have a car). I don't know why that memory always stayed with me; maybe because I felt safe and loved. I miss you and wish you'd had the chance to see us all grow up, and to see all the wonderful grandkids and great-grandkids you have now.

    Dad, not a day goes by that I don't think of you and wonder how different life would have been if you were not killed. Losing your father at the age of 4 is not easy. The memories I have of you are mostly from old pictures but the amazing man you we're has been told to me by many. I would have to say if you have to lose your father at a young age it is great to find out later that he died selflessly trying to save one of his troops. You are the biggest hero I have ever known.
    I strive to be half the man you were.
    I miss you dad, love your oldest son,Mark

    Dear SSGT Frank John De Marco, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
