Frank was a kind and loving husband, father and Nonno (grandfather). He was a joyful man who taught us that “family was the most important thing”. Frank cherished his wife, Maria, and loved spending time with her; gardening, taking walks hand in hand, going to concerts, and traveling. Nothing brought him greater joy than being with his children and grandchildren; summer trips to Maine and family visits to North Carolina. He also enjoyed making (and sharing) wine, swimming, going to the movies and dining out. Frank was a very spiritual man and a devoted parishioner of St. Anthony’s Church. No words can express this incredible loss. He will be deeply missed. Funeral from the Paul Buonfiglio Funeral Home, 128 Revere St., Revere on Friday August 13, 2021 at 10:00am.
