Frank Ascione, a former River Vale councilman, passed away on December 25.  He was 79.

An All-State basketball player at Cliffside Park High School, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps and spent 35 years with the Ford Motor Company.

Ascione, a Republican, was elected to the River Vale Township Council in 1980, defeating incumbent Democratic councilwoman Susan Gold.  Two Democratic incumbents were re-elected.

In 1983, Ascione resigned from the council because Ford had transferred him to Tennessee.
