The son of Domenic Sciarrone (Veroni) and Maria Calarco, Frank Veroni transcended his family's tragic past and became a highly respected doctor and philanthropist in Ohio. According to a 1938 Detroit border crossing record, Dr. Frank Veroni was born in Toronto in 1910. They came to Toronto after his parents had left Ottawa, where a previous child, also named Frank had died at the age of 8 months. Both were named after Domenico's father Francesco. Greatness has dark and light aspects to it, and it appears Dr. Veroni sought the light and found it far from Guelph.
