Frank Edward Azzarelli, 65, entered into eternal rest Thursday morning, May 11, 2023, at his residence. He was a son to the late Anthony Edward Azzarelli and the late Betty Joe Wright Azzarelli.
Frank was the owner of Brothers Tree Company in Bamberg, where he was known by everyone and dearly loved by so many. His presence was acknowledged anywhere he went. Frank was blessed, as he always stated by the love of family and friendships he had. He loved and took extra care of his customers and workers, striving to always go above and beyond for each person. Frank was known to be a hard worker; he showed that by remaining a giver and not a receiver and simply desiring to always help others. Family was important to him and he was especially proud of his grandchildren, where they held a special place in his heart.
Frank had a passion for golf and collecting guns. He loved to travel and visit the mountains as often as possible, when he wasn’t working or helping those who needed it. Frank, an avid reader of his bible, kept his faith with our Lord and savior.
He is survived by: his wife, Cynthia Lynn Azzarelli; his sons, Johnny Azzarelli and Taylor Sawyer; his daughters, Mary Azzarelli Thomas (Lance), Amanda Lovato (Mario), and Ashley Brant (Jamie); nine grandchildren; a brother, John Azzarelli (Mary) and a sister, Brooke Drake (Larry). He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held 11 o’clock, Monday morning, May 15, 2023, at the Bamberg First Baptist Church, 11823 Heritage Highway, Bamberg. Burial will follow in the Bamberg County Memory Gardens, Highway 78, Bamberg.
The family will receive friends during a time of visitation beginning at 10 o’clock, prior to the service at the church.

When Great Trees Fall
When great trees fall,rocks on distant hills shudder,lions hunker down in tall grasses,and even elephant slumber after safety.When great trees fall in forests,small things recoil into silence,their senses eroded beyond fear.When great souls die,the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile.We breathe, briefly.Our eyes, briefly,see with a hurtful clarity.Our memory, suddenly sharpened,examines,gnaws on kind words unsaid,promised walks never taken.Great souls die and our reality, bound tothem, takes leave of us.Our souls,dependent upon their nurture,now shrink, wizened.Our minds, formed and informed by their radiance, fall away.We are not so much maddened as reduced to the unutterable ignorance of dark, cold caves. And when great souls die,after a period peace blooms,slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration.Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us.They existed. They existed.We can be. Be and bebetter. For they existed.
