Frank Leroy Jacoby., husband of 69 years to Frances Martin Jacoby and father to Bruce Jacoby (wife: Denise), Gregg Jacoby (wife: Barbara) and Jill Jacoby Aprahamian (husband: John) brother of the late Wayne Weatherby (wife: Carol), Brother in law to Kay Martin Collins and the late George Martin jr (wife: Doris) ( and Uncle to Renee Weatherby (husband Mark), Mary Weatherby (husband: Ralph), and Barbara Collins Clark (husband: Bruce), peacefully passed on Sunday, August 16th, 2020 at their home in Buena Vista, New Jersey. Frank was a proud grandfather, to Tara Jacoby, Lexi Aprahamian Molloy (husband: Tim), Lindsey Aprahamian and Allie Shay Aprahamian and great Grandfather to Sam Aprahamian Molloy.
Frank was born to Sarah Turner and Herschel Weatherby in Ocean City, NJ on December 15, 1932.
Frank was a consummate musician and the leader of Frank Jacoby and the Mood Masters. They played regularly (mostly every Friday and Saturday night) throughout South Jersey in the 60s and 70s. His love of music also was passed to us kids.
He was also one of the family owner operators of Martins Ace Hardware on New Rd in Pleasantville, a store that was serving the community since the early 1900s. He taught us the value of hard work. That value helped greatly in keeping us kids employed.
In his “spare time” he served as a councilman for our little town of Absecon, New Jersey for a couple of years. For us kids, Dad was a mentor, teacher, provider, consoler, and protector. He inspired us to do our very best. He is dearly missed by us all.
The service will be private with a date to be determined.

So sorry to read of Frank's death in the paper this morning. I met him in Cape Coral and I enjoyed the little time we spent with Frank and Fran. Our sympathy to the family. He was a very nice man.

Frank Jacoby- A dear friend of fifty years will be missed by many, but especially music lovers as his band and legendary songs I remember on most Fridays and Saturday nites in the 60s. We had some good times over the years and my memories of New Years parties at his home in Absecon were some of the best times in my life! His partner in life, Fran was first friend to me when moving from Alaska to stateside in 1961 and is still a good friend to me.
May he rest with the best!
Sincerely with love,
Gee Arrom

Frank was always such a pleasure to work with at his store. He always had a smile and the ability to find whatever you needed. Along with Fran and George it was a throw back to a time of wonderful service and a warm family feeling. That store will always be a fond memory of my years in business. RIP Frank. You were a true joy to be around.
