LITTLE FALLS - Mr. Francis H. “Frank” Liddon, of Murphy Road, Little Falls, NY, (Town of Manheim) Korean Conflict US Marine Veteran, entered into eternal rest surrounded by his loving family at home on March 2, 2016. He was born on December 28, 1933, in Little Falls, NY, son of the late Victor A. and Margaret (Coffin) Liddon and was educated in St. Mary’s Academy. His military career spanned from 1954 until 1962. On December 31, 1955, Frank married Patricia Green at Nativity Church in Torrance, California. The couple's union began while Francis was serving with the U.S. Marines. Their relationship remained a loyal and steadfast one throughout their 50 years together. Each of them served as the perfect balance and harmonious complement to the other's attitude, personality and life. Frank was employed in the maintenance department at Little Falls Hospital and retired in July 1996 after twenty five years of dedicated service. He had also at one time worked with the Santa Ana Register. He was a member of the Holy Family Parish, the Holy Name Society, and served as a Boy Scout Leader and a Little League Coach.
