Frank Interlandi is survived by his daughter and her husband, Richard Ferreira; son, Frank Phillip Interlandi, his wife, Carrie, and their two children, Joseph, 4, and Anthony 1, of Poway; and niece Liza Stuart, her husband, Steve, and their son, Caden, of Laguna Beach; and Stuart’s siblings, Carla, Danny and Joe.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders.
A celebration of Frank Interlandi’s life will begin at noon today at the gazebo in Heisler Park, chosen by his daughter because the twins held an informal ceremony there when their elder brother, Joe, died.
The celebration will continue at the Marine Room Tavern on Ocean Avenue where Frank Interlandi had his special spot.
“I was sitting there one day when he came in, and the waitress said he might be a little upset,” said friend Richard Hoppe. “So I apologized and he said it was all right — just don’t do it again.”
Marine Room owner and Councilman Kelly Boyd said all will be welcome.
“I am going to miss him sitting in his little corner,” said Boyd. “For the 23 years that I have been here, he was here. He was the last of a special breed.”
