Obituary of Frank M. Diaz
Frank M. Diaz, age 62, passed away on January 21st, 2022. Born in Phoenix, AZ. Frank started a career as a draftsman before going on to find great success as a real estate agent in Las Vegas and the Phoenix Metropolitan area, where he became a broker with his own business. Frank loved what he did for a living and it showed; throughout his long career in real estate, he helped many people – including grateful friends and family – find a place they could call home.
When he wasn’t working, Frank enjoyed the finer things in life: deep sea fishing, golfing, and spending time with family. He was known to be a very funny man with a fondness for sweets and beer. When he wasn’t playing golf, you could find him watching it on television or dominating it virtually on Golden Tee machines found in establishments both near and far.
He was an avid sports fan who loved his Los Angeles Dodgers and Las Vegas Raiders. As a lifelong fan, Frank rooted for them each season, win or lose; but his favorite pastime was ribbing opposing teams and their supporters, friends and family included. His good-natured competition will be missed by many.
Frank is preceded in death by his parents, Mary Frances (Marquez) & Benny P. Diaz; and beloved brothers Benny Jr. & Leonard Sr. He is survived by his children, Jessica (Mike), Yvette (Louie), Tifani, & Austin; grandchildren, Jayme, Erika ; grandchild, AJ; siblings, Rebecca, Joe (Nidal), & Cathy; nephews, Leonard Jr. (Leticia), Benny III (Charity), Michael (Crystal), & David (CJ); and his cherished extended family.
A Celebration of Life will be held in his honor on Saturday, April 16th, from 12-2pm, at Palm Valley Community Center, 14145 W Palm Valley Blvd, Goodyear, AZ 85395. All are welcome to join in this remembrance.
