FRANK W. FERRARI.
One of Napa county's leading business men is Frank W. Ferrari, a well known garage man and agent for the Chrysler
cars at Napa, whose splendid success has been in a large measure due to his able management and judicious counsel.
Indolence and idleness are entirely foreign to his nature and owing to his close application to his business and
his honorable methods he has won prosperity that is richly merited and he is now numbered among the representative
business men of his locality. Mr. Ferrari was born at Yountville, Napa county, on the 18th day of January, 1894,
and is the son of John and Alva (Pallandini) Ferrari, who had come to this country in the days of their youth and
were married here. John Ferrari is a concrete mason at the Eldredge Sonoma State Home and he and his wife enjoy
the respect of all who know them.
Frank W. Ferrari attended the public schools at St. Helena and Napa, and early learned the trade of an automobile
machinist, which vocation he followed in San Francisco and Napa. During the World war he enlisted in the United
States navy as a machinist and was employed in convoy work from Plymouth, England, through the war zone for eight
months. In 1920 Mr. Ferrari returned to Napa and for a time was employed in various places. In 1922 he started
in business on his own account. He had at first started to work for a Mr. Johnson when he was a boy and he still
carries the name of Johnson on his garage. He has a well equipped repair shop, where he is prepared to make all
kinds of repairs quickly and accurately, and has gained a high reputation for the reliability of his repair work.
He also carries a full line of service supplies, parts and accessories and is the agent for Napa and vicinity for
the well known Chrysler automobile. He is enjoying a steadily increasing business and now keeps five men steadily
Mr. Ferrari married Miss Olive Pieratt, who was born and reared in Napa. He is nominally a republican, voting that
ticket on national issues, but in local elections he follows the dictates of his judgment as to the qualifications
of the candidates for the offices they seek. He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Benevolent
Protective Order of Elks, the Independent Order of Foresters, the American Legion, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles;
a genial and companionable gentleman, a man of sound business ability and sterling integrity and he has rightly
earned the splendid place which he now occupies in the estimation of the people of his community.
