Frankie was a young kid who loved to sing. He was 12 years old when he discovered the love for music. He and his brother, Nick, formed a singing group called The Concepts, along with Richie Grasso, Vinnie Sorgi and Leon Barette. He went on to record songs, like Fair Weather Friend, This Girl, How About That and Come With Me. The group went on to get signed to many record labels and recorded many songs. They appeared on many local shows, Dick Clarks Bandstand, The Steel Pier in Atlantic City, to name a few, and traveled up and down the East Coast to other venues. As the group was appearing and touring, they changed their name to The Styles and, finally, The 5 Classics. It was actually Hy Lit and Joe Niagra, two very well known DJs at the time, who suggested changing his stage name to Dean Randolph. (After Frank's 2 favorite stars, Dean Martin and Randolph Scott). He recorded on many record labels, Chancellor, Saturn, ABC Records, Apt and MGM. Time moved on and through the years there were many changes to his career. He fell in love and married Maryann Sofia who stole his heart and ended those days of being one of the first handsome teen idols. Married with a family of 2 children, Maryann and Frank, Jr, Dean Randolph continued singing, only now, with Acapella Groups. Memory Lane, consisting of Frankie, John Paloney, Richard Booker, (of Lee Andrews and The Hearts), Bill Kelsey and Bobby Burgess. Memory Lane was the last group Frankie was a part of and he continued to perform with them right up until his passing. They performed in many local venues and recorded their CD called Acapella Ave, which still does very well today. Frankie “Dean Randolph” Pescatore was a mild mannered, soft spoken, gentle giant with a heart of gold and will be sorely missed by all in the Philadelphia Music Industry and countless number of family, friends and fans.

Frank is survived by his loving wife Maryann (nee Sofia). He is the devoted father of Maryann (Michael) Belgiorno and the late Frank Pescatore, Jr. Beloved Poppi of Gianna, Michael, Sophia, Frankie III, and Gino. Brother of Henry (Dorothy) and Nicky (Carole) Pescatore. He is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Viewing, mass, and interment will be held privately with a music filled Celebration of Life to be announced at a later date
