He later moved to Florida where he tried his hand running small businesses, and worked as a maintenance man and a bus mechanic.
Farley's interests included cars, motorcycles and hunting.
He is survived by Robin Farley, his wife of 27 years; stepdaughter; three grandchildren; his brothers Joseph and John, and sister Marie.
Celebrations of Frank's life will be held in Florida and Pennsylvania. Family and friends will be notified of the dates and locations.
