Francis P. “Frank” Kuchnicki, age 93, of Allentown, formerly of Southside succumbed to a long illness and passed away on Memorial Day, Monday May 29, 2023.   Frank was a Jack-Of-All-Trades, a Master of some! He was a gardener, enjoyed fishing, built dollhouses for his grandchildren, appreciated vacations on the beach, and learned to speak some Japanese, and Polish. He served in the Korean War, was a J&L Steelworker, and a proud Pittsburgh Firefighter for many years. He made many friends in his travels to flea markets and estate sales. His heart was always in Pittsburgh where he was born, raised, and lived. Always cheering on the Penguins, Steelers and Pirates.
