Frank was born on February 14, 1974 in the Bronx, NY. He is the son of Frank Morales, Jr. and Theresa Irrizarry Morales.

Frank lived his life with fullness and joy. He was a devoted father and husband. His love for his family was obvious to anyone who knew him. The pride he took in coaching his son's baseball games was only matched by the pride he took in his role as husband and father. Frank's appreciation of music was something that not only brought him joy, but was also passed on to his son. They loved to share weekly drum lessons together. The medical field was not just a career for Frank, it was a passion. He had a zest for knowledge and loved to share his knowledge through teaching. He was always there with a funny joke or anecdote from his work and Frank brought life to any room he entered. You only had to hear Frank telling a story about Stephanie and Zakk to feel the love and respect he had for his family. He was a protector and a nurturer and touched the lives of so many. His friends and colleagues knew they could count on him and his loyalty. Frank was proud of his Puerto Rican heritage and loved going back to visit his grandparents.

Frank was a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner working for the Premier Medical Group @ St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital, Newburgh. He was an active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Marlboro where he was an Usher. He was a Coach for the Marlboro Youth Baseball Organization.
