He was born in Worcester and was a steel worker at KomTek. Previously, he worked as an assembler at Worcester Tool & Stamping along with his mom.
He enjoyed spending time with his daughter Kayleigh every summer up on Loon Mountain. They spent their time fishing, ziplining, shopping and swimming. Frankie often would grab a fishing pole and head down to the lake for some quiet time. The best thing about Frankie is that he would light up the room and make you laugh. He’d give you the shirt off his back. He still had so much more to give. He lived a simple life and needed little but was still so content and happy. Frankie enjoyed spending time with his family; keeping family traditions together, going to the ocean, and camping. He was a family oriented guy and a proud big brother who loved his family very much. He was a great dad, fun uncle, dependable big brother and a great friend. He would close his conversations with miss er face to the ones he loved. We will miss er face
