Ferenc was born in Budapest, Hungary on June 25, 1940. His journey from a communist country to Lady Liberty in New York was full of trials, faith and courage. He knew there was something better on the other side. He came to N.Y. as a refugee in 1960, and even though he was unable to speak English, he found work, good friends and an adoring wife. Today he leaves behind his wife Chris of 47 years, four children; Mary, Francis, Christine and Maggie, and four grandchildren; Sam, Tucker, Tessa, and Indiana.
Ferenc battled sickness for many years and made it known to his family that he was so very tired, and that he was ready for his next journey. He even said he knew there was something better on the other side. Once again, he brought forth his faith and courage. His family is honored to have shared their time with him. He will be forever missed.
