Frank Nigro

Frank August Nigro, 95, of College Station, passed away surrounded by his children on Wednesday, July 25, 2018.

Frank was born November 2, 1922 to Peter Michael Nigro and Delphina Filiponne Nigro in San Antonio, TX.  After his time of service in the Army, he began a career as a Merchant Marine.  He met Agnes Earlene Woodall in Galveston, TX and they were married on June 6, 1958.  They began their life together in Easterly, TX and opened “The Coffee Shop”.  Years later, this was a full-service gas station and auto repair shop.  The early 1970’s gas shortage saw Frank going back to the Merchant Marines where he finished his career.

Surviving Frank is his son Mike Nigro and wife, Lisa; his daughters Sheryl Kirk and husband, Chris, Sharon Jean Russell and husband, Ron, Wynona McCormick and husband, Britt; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

His best friend Agnes Nigro; his parents; and his brothers Frank Anthony, Charlie, Johnny, Pete, and Joe preceded him in death.

Frank’s wishes were to be cremated with his family sprinkling his ashes at sea without a public service.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice Brazos Valley at 502 W 26th St Bryan, TX 77803-9900 or online at
