A loving father and family man, Frank Vergata has been reunited with the love of his life, Kathryne “Kay”, and daughter, Jill. Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska following his military service, Frank and Kay made Brookfield their home for over 50 years.
Frank is survived by his children, John (Carol) Vergata, Jim (Cheryl) Vergata, Joel (Christine) Vergata, and Judy Vergata (Todd McLaren). He was a loving grandfather to Christopher (Marsha) Vergata, Gina (Paul) Vergata-Konieczny, Ashley (Jim) Jeske, Kyle Vergata, and Derek Vergata. Great-grandfather to Hannah Jeske. Also loved by many nieces, nephews, and friends who became family. Frank was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Kay (nee Burbach), daughter Jill, sister Mary Monico and brother Sam Vergata. Frank was a proud Korean War veteran of the US Navy, and retired from Miller Brewing Company. He enjoyed spending time with his family and so many friends from George Webb, walking friends from Brookfield Square Mall, his neighbors, military friends, and so many others. As the Candyman, he always had a piece of candy for everyone he came in contact with.
