Frank Sinatra Jr. dies while on tour in Florida

I wasn’t as familiar with his music as I was with his famous dad.

May he rest in peace.

Frank Sinatra Jr., the son of the legendary entertainer who had a long musical career of his own, died Wednesday, said manager Andrea Kauffman.

He was 72.

Kauffman said Sinatra died at a Daytona Beach, Florida, hospital. Singer Nancy Sinatra said on her Facebook page that her brother died of cardiac arrest.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
And let the perpetual light shine upon them.

And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I was sorry to hear this this morning. I sometimes feel sorry for the children of famous entertainers, especially when they choose to practice the art that made their parent famous, since they usually can’t reduplicate their parent’s success. If I were in that situation I might try to make a name for myself in a completely unrelated field, say investment banking.

Praying for the repose of his soul.
