Frank S. Thorp, Jr.

April 23, 1939 ~ July 9, 2019 (age 80)

Frank S. Thorp Jr., 80, of East Marion, passed peacefully while surrounded by his loving family.

 Frank had a rewarding career as a respected social studies teacher at Weber J.H.S. in Port Washington. He taught fairness and tolerance while encouraging each student to do their personal best. In addition, for many years he directed the sailing programs at yacht clubs in Port Washington and Orient.

 He lived his dream and retired to his family home in East Marion, where he had spent every Summer since childhood. He cherished his front porch view, with binoculars always within reach. He enjoyed his later years working at S.T. Preston & Sons. in Greenport, where he shared his vast knowledge of boating and local waters.

 He is survived by his loving wife, Paula, his four children, Charles Thorp, Ann Asaro and husband Michael, Jill Doherty, Frank Thorp III and wife Shannon, and his brother Edward and wife Virginia. He was the proud grandfather of Jacob Thorp, Sarah and Brian Doherty, Michaela and Samantha Asaro. He is predeceased by his first wife Barbara.
