Obituary for Frank Arthur Mason

Frank A. Mason, 88, of Pennington, NJ, passed away on Friday, February 22, 2019 with his loving family by his side. Son of the late Frank and Grace (Theil) Mason, he was born in Brooklyn, NY. He graduated from Malverne High School in 1948 and received a full scholarship to Cornell University where he graduated in 1953 with a B.S. in Industrial and Labor Relations. He then earned his Masters Degree in Management and Economics from New York University in 1958. Frank served in the U.S. Army as a First Lt. and was stationed first, at Ft. Hamilton in NY, and then in Germany until his discharge in 1955.

From 1969-1991 he served as the Director of the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations, appointed by five governors. He was on loan from Johnson and Johnson to the State of New Jersey to help develop the State’s employee relations program. It was such an interesting time and the work was so complex that he stayed and eventually became the Director of the office. Prior to his formal appointment, he served as the Assistant to the Corporate Vice President of Personnel at Johnson and Johnson from 1955 to 1969. After retiring from the State, Frank developed a private arbitration practice until he retired in 2001.

Predeceased by his parents Frank and Grace (Theil) Mason and brother Robert, he is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Nancy along with four children, Marjorie Mason Liakakos, Pamela Mason Sanders and spouse Raymond, Debra Mason Delaney and spouse Jeff, and Roger Mason and seven grandchildren, James and Emily Liakakos, Amanda and Colleen Sanders, Jessica, Beth and Kyle Delaney. He is also survived by his sister, Edythe Butt of Atlanta, GA., and William Mason of Concord, MA., along with many nieces, nephews and wonderful loving friends.

Besides having fun with his grandchildren and daughters, he loved to play golf and travel. He would have said one of his best achievements was the undertaking of designing and building his own home with the help of his wife, a labor of love.

The viewing for Frank will be held on Friday March 1, 2019 at the Wilson-Apple Funeral Home, 2560 Pennington Road, Pennington, NJ. From 5:30 P.M. to 8 P.M.

A celebration of life will be on March 2 at the Pennington Presbyterian Church, 13 South Main Street, Pennington, NJ 08534 at 11 am with reception immediately following.
