We worked for Frank for many years on keeping this property taxes in check. He was a great guy to work for and client who was always grateful and pleasant. I had no idea he was also an artist. He will be missed by our entire staff at Andrea A. Raila & Associates.

Frank Steponate was a good friend of mine. He was my next door neighbor on Sheridan beach. I worked @ his gallery last year and I never meet such a caring person.

Frank was a very talented artist, and his passing was a total shock to me.

I was privlaged to have known Frank, he will be missed.

I'm sure Frank is painting the Heavens with his talent.

I too was privileged to know Frank. He was a treasured friend and his passing was very sad. His delight for the 'gallery' and his extemporaneous proclivities will genuinely be missed!!

I was a client of this wise and crafty SOB. Later in time we had a slight friendship and working relationship. Frank took on what turned out to be a 5 year project for me. He never got tired. Was always calm and had a air about him that said "got it under control".
I find myself some 18 years later needing his smooth ways and find him gone. Don't you just hate the internet for all of it's information.
Damn Frank
I know you didn't leave us on your one decision but shit buddy. what do i do now... for without your smooth laid back attitude i wont stand a chance of winning. Frank i will miss you as a passing friend, a memorable character, a fellow man and my counsel.
RIP Buddy!
guess i will never get that picture you were painting in your digs on Sedgwick after all...you are missed bud!

I knew Frank for many many years. A kind man, loved his job, and most of all his daughter's. I am sure he will be missed by many but especially the girls and his grandchildren. One of his favorite past times of course was his art. I am thankful I have a few pieces.
He created a life he enjoyed.
He will be missed, but may we have hope in the future of all seeing him again. Rest in peace Frank.

I knew Frank for over fifteen years and would speak with him each morning as the sun rose over the city. Each day was brightened by his humor and warmth. I am a better attorney and man because of him. I miss you partner.

I worked for Frank as a Law Clerk many years ago, but he always recognized me and would say Hello. He was a kind and decent lawyer, which is especially rare these days. I was shocked to read of his passing.
