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.
