Frank J. Seprish, 87, of Snow Shoe, passed away on Friday, February 26, 2021 at the Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College. Born on June 23, 1933 in Clarence, he was the son of the late Mark and Amelia (Kupka) Ciprich. On June 21, 1959, in Clarence, he married Patricia E. Bambarger who survives in Bellefonte.

Frank built many miles of highway as a heavy equipment operator, and was a member of the Operating Engineers, local 66 for 60+ years.
Frank enjoyed working on cars. He could fix anything. He liked to start tree saplings from acorns and whirligigs. Many of the trees in his yard began this way. He was just an all-around nice guy that would help anyone. His favorite activity was playing with his grandchildren.
