Frank R. Spacapan, 87, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 7, 2014, at Valley Health Services, Herkimer with the love and support of his family. Born in Little Falls, NY on January 8, 1927, Frank was the son of the late Louis and Ethel (Smith) Spacapan. He was raised and educated locally and was a proud veteran of the United States Army serving in the Asiatic Pacific Campaign. On June 2, 1951, he was united in marriage to the former Marlene Metot at St. Marys Parish House in Little Falls; the couple sharing 62 years of love and devotion to one another. Frank was employed as a supervisor for Little Falls Color Print for many years. He was a member of the DeCarlo Staffo Post of Little Falls, the Herkimer American Legion and the Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Little Falls. Frank truly loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter, fisherman and loved his camp at Caroga Lake; enjoying it as often as he could. Blended with his extremely kind and generous nature, he was a supportive patriarch to his family. In truth, Franks family enhanced his life and they were a major motivation of his happiness. We love you to the moon and back. He is survived by his beloved wife, Marlene, of Mohawk; his son, Ronald and his wife, Pat, of Colchester, VT; his daughter, Joann Fannin and her husband, Larry, of Shrub Oak, NY; his cherished grandchildren, Kathleen McDonald and husband Steve, Kelly Spacapan, Kimberly Spacapan, Nicholas Fannin and wife, Kristen, Jacquelyn Fannin, Wendy Boutin, William Hoag, and Tammy Jette; great grandchildren, Bailie and Brennan McDonald; a sister, Lois Spacapan and Jack Gallager, of Tucson, AZ; a son-in-law, Roger Jette and wife, Debra; a special niece and nephew, Linda and Jim Metott; and many other nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.
