Frank M. Sobel passed away peacefully at the age of 93 on January 11, 2021 in Delray Beach, Florida. He is predeceased by his wife, Toni and his son, Marc. He is survived by his wife Carol; his children Ralph, Nancy, Ricky and John; his daughters-in-law Alice, Debbie, Nanette and Liz; his grandchildren Chris (Ken), Kevin (Amy), David (Jackie), Michael, Steven, Alexis, Jessica and Andrew; and his great-grandchildren Ben, Jack, Lila and Adam.

The Sobel family included five children, four boys and one girl. They lived on Garden Road in Scarsdale for 22 years, from 1960 to 1982. All the kids were athletes and the four boys were captains of the soccer team. The youngest brother became a professional tennis player.
Frank loved playing tennis, traveling, "Dirty Harry" movies, ice cream, and most of all, his family. He was quick-witted, with a deep moral compass and a strong sense of loyalty. A private service took place on Friday, January 15, 2021 at Mt. Nebo Funeral Home in Kendall, FL. Contributions may be made in Frank's memory to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
