PORT CHESTER, NY—Long-time Zyloware Eyewear employee and optician Frank Albhon died Oct. 13, Zyloware announced. Albhon, who was 64, was an integral part of Zyloware’s Quality Assurance team for almost a decade. He began his optical career in 1974, and subsequently received the Zyloware Employee of the Year Award in 2017. He had a deep understanding of customer needs and eyewear dispensing, Zyloware's announcement noted. Albhon also was an avid sportsman, who played baseball, football and softball, and was always willing to share his unmatched sports knowledge with his team at Zyloware.

Christopher Shyer, president and co-chief executive officer of Zyloware said, "Frank was remarkable in his commitment to his craft to the very end. He loved optical, he was so proud to share his knowledge and Zyloware was truly his second family; many years he chose to come to work, not taking any vacation time. He made us all believe working was his greatest pleasure. We are so grateful for our good fortune to count Frank part of our most valuable legacy: our people. Our hearts go out to his family."

Albhon is survived by his wife, Anne, and son, Frank Albhon III.
