Frank Lazzaro is a Long Island celebrity in Libraries, Senior Clubs and Organizations. He is the former White House Holiday and State Dinner "Freelance" Floral Decorator during the Ford, Carter and Reagan Administrations, a United States Army Veteran and a self-published Author of his book "Memoirs of Decorating My White House". His designs graced the tables of three sitting Presidents, The Queen of England, A Prince, The Governors of the United States, an Emperor and an abundance of world famed celebrities and dignitaries attending a White House State Dinner or Black Tie reception one time or another. His over-night success came quickly at the youthful age of twenty-five to this young man of "Little financial means". He grew up in a low-middle class neighborhood and became the youngest Christmas Decorator at the White House to hold this privilege position. Born and raised in Jamaica, N.Y., in a simple Italian family lifestyle, he remained in the spotlight of this elegant career with the very privileged surrounding him for twelve years, standing in the midst of the most affluent and powerful humans of the day. Today, He lives a lifestyle of a "minimalist" with the very simple pleasures of a world that needs more peace of mind and less stress, financial worries, credit card debt and materialism of "unnecessary things" in the human being of today's modern age. He enjoys working out daily in the gym, traveling on foot to different places wearing a hooded sweatshirt and carrying a military backpack when not performing his seminars on stage before hundreds of people and giving out his autograph to his audience viewers and followers on his famed 115 page book, "Memoirs of Decorating My White House". Frank sometimes enjoys the beauty of nature surrounding him while having lunch on a park bench with some neighborhood street people. He's a man of "rough edges" with his military survival and jungle training at Fort Polk, La. and airborne training at Fort Bragg, NC. He is well known in his town for taking less fortunate people with some bad breaks in life, into a Seven Eleven and treating them to hot dogs and drinks. ( He owns no vehicle and enjoys the freedom of not being a slave to debt ). "To have and to own less, is to have more joy in life". His famous shows are "not for profit" to his living lifestyle and takes no compensation for himself. Organizations must compensate his full expense of a vehicle, insurance and necessities, for him to travel and perform on their stages. He answers only to his Heavenly Father, brings everyone down to his equal and is no subordinate to any human being accept The Pope. He once told a New York Times reporter, "After dining at The White House and rubbing elbows with the President, everyone else takes a back seat in my life". Frank Lazzaro is truly a unique one of a kind American Male who desires to walk the road of life less traveled on .
