Frank Caroselli, longtime local, 1910-2005
Longtime local Frank Caroselli died in his sleep Sept. 26 in Palm Desert, Calif. He was 95. Caroselli was born Sept. 14, 1910 in Jersey City N.J. He was educated in New Jersey and graduated from Steven’s Institute of Technology in Hoboken. During World War II, Caroselli worked for Bell Telephone Laboratories and helped design the guidance system for the Nike missile system, among other U.S. military technologies still classified as top secret, family members said. Caroselli’s research into the quartz crystal and his engineering patents allowed a small town in Colorado to receive a radio station, KVMT, and a microwave telephone system. Caroselli is survived by his wife, Addie, of Bradenton, Fla.; daughter Lee Caroselli of Palm Desert; son and daughter-in-law, Frank and Marie Caroselli of Park City, Utah; son and daughter-in-law, Keith and Dawn Caroselli of Palm Desert; brother Raymond Caroselli of Jersey City; and numerous nephews and nieces. A memorial service is planned in Palm Desert in the near future as well as the burial-at-sea of Caroselli’s ashes off Newport Beach, Calif. Vail, Colorado
