Frank Sinatra Jr, the deceased son of Frank Sinatra, has been late for seven years. His sister Nancy Sinatra, honored him on Instagram, as she has done in the past. Nancy and Frank Jr. followed in their father’s footsteps, and many fans feel the deceased had his father’s iconic voice.
About a day ago, on Instagram, singer Nancy Sinatra shared a throwback picture of herself and her brother, Francis Wayne Sinatra, better known as Frank Sinatra Jr. The post honored the anniversary of her late brother’s passing.

“Remembering and honoring my brother, Frank Sinatra Jr., on the anniversary of his passing. Missing you always, Frankie,” Nancy wrote in the post with a picture of them looking happy together. She then added a quote from an anonymous individual, which reads:
“Those you love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed, and very dear.”
This is not Nancy’s first time using social media to reminisce about her brother’s life. Last year on March 16, she posted a picture of Frank Jr. and herself with a very emotional caption. The songstress wrote of how much she missed everything about him, emphasizing that it had been six years since his passing.
Similarly, she shared a tribute to him on his birthday on January 11 this year. In the caption of her birthday post, Nancy wished her brother a happy birthday and hoped that Frank Jr. was celebrating his birthday if they could exist or be celebrated anywhere in the universe.
Before revealing that their family used to call him Uncle Funny, the actress detailed how he grew from a humorous child to a brilliant musician and mentioned that she feels he did not receive all the acknowledgment he deserved.
