Francis Paul “Frank” Stabile, III, 49, of Red Hook and a longtime former resident of Palenville, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. Born on May 9, 1971, in Catskill, NY, he is the son of Eileen (Cunningham) Stabile and Francis Paul Stabile, Jr. of Palenville, NY.

Frank was a graduate of SUNY Oswego—Class of 1993. On January 8, 1996, he entered the New York State Police and rose to the rank of Senior Investigator in the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
