Francis T. Hillegass, Jr.
Frank dedicated himself to the care of others ~ through his military service, his career in hospital administration, his involvement in the VFW and his commitment to his faith.
He was a guiding light to his family and friends, bestowing upon them wonderful memories of a life well lived and a genuine spirit of love, loyalty and compassion.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - Frank’s family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following
Covenant House New York
Covenant House New York began more than 40 years ago when six young runaways were given shelter from a snowstorm, in the lower east side of Manhattan. The organization helps young people who are homeless and without a place to turn. All, regardless of gender, age, pregnancy, sexual orientation or teenage mothers are treated without judgement or bias, but with love and celebration of who they are.
To prevent and break the cycle of chronic adult homelessness and bridge the gap of support in the lives of our youth, Covenant House New York has a comprehensive Continuum of Care characterized by the coordination and integration of a range of services including: crisis care and shelter; transitional living; health care; employment and job readiness training; educational support and GED preparation; legal services; street outreach; aftercare and drop-in; and more.
Cape Regional Medical Center
As a long-time supporter of the medical center, Frank cared deeply about the health care needs of all. A memorial contribution to the Cape Regional Medical Center would be both a living tribute to Frank’s memory and help other families of the Cape May community receive the care they deserve when they need it most.
Wounded Warrior Project
The Wounded Warrior Project aims to help injured service members aid and assist each other by providing unique, direct programs to meet their individual needs. Programs include: Combat Stress Recovery which addresses the mental health and cognitive needs of warriors returning from war; the Independence Program, designed for warriors who rely on their family or caregivers as a result of moderate-to-severe brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions; Family Support; Transition Training; and the Warrior Care Network, connecting veterans to academic medical centers that can address undiagnosed and untreated mental health issues suffered from the travesty of war.
