Frank John Bersterman Jr. passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on April 5, 2022 after a well fought battle with cancer.
Frank was born September 17, 1954 in Baltimore Maryland and moved to New Jersey after college where he worked and raised his family over the last 44 years.
Frank was a master computer and IT technician having worked for WANG laboratories, Fort Lee Police Department and Paterson Parking Authority. He was an extraordinarily hard worker and an innovative mind in the field of computer technology. Frank enjoyed many passions but what truly set him on fire was being a part of the traveling softball leagues he played with all of his buddies. He was also extremely passionate about his grandkids and spending time with family whether that meant family dinners, going for ice cream or hanging on the beach. Frank also had a deep and meaningful relationship with the Lord, which was the foundation on which he built the strength of his marriage and the closeness of his family.
Frank leaves behind his wife of 45 years, Susan Bersterman and his three children; daughter Lindsay and two sons Justin and Matthew. He is also survived by his grandchildren Ulises Guzman Jr., Luciano Guzman, Julian Guzman, and Logan Bersterman; as well as his sisters Norma Lee Moreland, Ada Mae Daniels, Tharion Abtahi and Carol Vanorsdale. Frank also leaves behind so many treasured friends, many of which he counted as family.
He was predeceased by his parents Gudettia and Frank, brother James, and sisters Regina and Frannie.
