From Tracy DeSomma
My heart is broken. Last evening, on his way home from work Frank DeSomma was involved in an accident in his POF-USA Jeep. He didn’t make it. Frank lived life to the fullest. He was passionate about Guns, Cars, Politics, and his children and grandchildren. I will forever cherish every memory with him. I will love you forever Mr. Patriot. — with Frank DeSomma.

Very sad news this morning to learn that POF founder Frank DeSomma passed away after a car accident. My sincere condolences to all, as I know he will be sadly missed by many and for a very long time. It was an honor to meet you and its an honor to represent such a great brand! RIP Mr.Patriot 🇺🇸.
The gun world was rocked yesterday with the passing of Frank DeSomma, founder and chief designer at Patriot Ordinance Factory. Frank was critically injured in an auto accident, and succumbed to those injuries.
Frank was a brilliant designer and innovator, and a heck of a promoter, as well as being a stellar patriot and defender of the Second Amendment.
We ask for prayers for his family as we mourn with them.
We all know life is not guaranteed,yet we rarely think of it that way. Only when someone close passes does mortality come in the picture. Yesterday we lost a great American patriot, innovator, family man, mentor, friend, and so much more. Frank DeSomma brought me into the POF family and never let me go.
This man was the essence of the American dream. Starting from his garage he raised Pof USA to success and a multi million dollar facility. All this while keeping his integrity,patriotism, and morals in tact. Frank spoke out for freedom and the American way to whoever would listen (and the crowds got bigger over time)
The last conversation we had just a couple days ago was about all the new innovations he was working on and was so excited to bring to fruition. This was Frank, always pushing forward no matter how successful. Life can be so cruel.
Frank Desomma was the embodiment of what an American is supposed to be.
We are lesser without him.
My heart hurts.
Heart felt condolences to my POF family.
As many of you have already heard, our friend Frank DeSomma was in a terrible jeep accident last night on his way home from work and did not survive. He was a friend who loved his country and family. The founder of Patriot Ordnance Factory. I have been friends with and sponsored by him since he was making rifles in his garage 16 years ago. We have been on shooting trips and family vacations together. I will truly miss him as I loved him like a brother. I can still hear him call me Timmaaaaay and I would respond Fraaaaaaank. Prayers to Tracy DeSomma, and the whole POF-USA family. My eyes are still watering.
