Rancho Mirage - Frank Busseri, a founding member of the popular 50's/60's group, The Four Lads, passed away on Monday, January 28, 2019 in Rancho Mirage, CA at the age of 86.

Frank was born on October 10, 1932 in Toronto, Ontario and educated at St. Michael's Choir School where he co-founded The Four Lads with Connie Codarini, Bernie Toorish & Jimmy Arnold.

Before rock & roll took over the charts, The Four Lads, dominated the early 1950's North American pop scene. Their four-part harmonies and clean-cut image helped make songs like "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)," "Moments to Remember," "No, Not Much!" and "Standing on the Corner" hits in all of North America.

Frank Busseri and the Lads were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1984, the United States Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003 and received a SING! Toronto Vocal Arts Festival Legacy Award in 2013.

He was a resident of the Palm Springs area for 15 years where he performed at the renowned McCallum theatre in Palm Desert (his last performance) as well as many additional venues throughout California. His tenure as an active member of The Four Lads spanned for over 65 years..

Frank is survived by his beloved wife, Eva, daughter Rosie of New York, son Frank Jr. of Toronto, sister Virginia & brother Anthony of Toronto, along with six grandchildren and five nephews. A memorial service will be held in Toronto, Ontario at a future date.

He will be missed forever and ever.
