Regarding death, Frank always said “You don’t get to decide. The good Lord will tell you when it’s time.” The good Lord said Frank’s time was December 27, 2020. Frank Arthur Pedulla was born January 10, 1929 to Carmelo and Cynthia Pedulla on the ranch northeast of Newcastle. Frank moved once in his life. He moved from the log house he was born in, to the new house that was twenty yards away. Frank was the youngest of five children.
Frank married Edna (Mike) Francis and they raised two sons, Bob and Jerry.
Frank operated the ranch and also kept busy with outside jobs. Frank worked in the timber, worked construction and did custom haying. He also operated Buckhorn Bar and Grill for several years. His hobbies included hunting, fishing and trips to Deadwood for a Lizzie burger.
Frank never met a stranger and had a kind and generous spirit. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents, wife Edna (Mike), son Jerry Pedulla, brothers Jim and Vic Pedulla, sisters Mary Williams and Pauline Rawhouser.
