Biography

Photograph of Frank Ciulla

Frank Ciulla, born August 6, 1943, lived in Park Ridge, New Jersey. A certified public accountant as well as vice president and chief financial officer of Chase Capital Markets, he had been assigned to the United Kingdom until March of 1989. His family had already returned to the United States, and Frank was flying home for Christmas before concluding his work in London. He was survived by his wife, Mary Lou; his children, Frank, Laurie Ann, and Michelle; his parents; and two brothers.


Described by a friend as "a lover not a fighter," Frank was admired for his honesty and candor, his understanding of people, and his ability to make them laugh. He was adventurous and lively; a business and sports enthusiast who was aggressive and competitive in a positive way. Frank demonstrated strength of character and confidence in himself that allowed him not only to succeed in life, but to enjoy it as well.
