Former METRO and School Bus Fleet (SBF) Publisher Frank A. Di Giacomo died in Cherry Hill, NJ, on May 9, 2024. He was 84.

Di Giacomo was involved in the public transportation, private motorcoach, and pupil transportation industries since 1981, when Bobit Business Media hired him as eastern sales manager for METRO and SBF. In 1991 and 1992, Di Giacomo was named publisher for SBF and METRO, respectively.

“Frank was not only my boss for many years, but also a friend and mentor,” METRO Executive Editor Alex Roman said. “He will not only be missed by me, but also the many people he touched at Bobit (METRO and SBF’s parent company), as well as in the public transit, private motorcoach, and pupil transportation industries.”

Frank A. Di Giacomo was the father of Frank A. (Kelly) Di Giacomo, Jr., and the late Vincent M. Di Giacomo, and grandfather of Emily Di Giacomo and Michael Di Giacomo.

Born and raised in Camden, NJ, he attended Gloucester Catholic High School and St. Joseph’s University.
