Obituary Condolences

Frank R. Pasquantonio, 89, passed away on May 17, 2014 at his home in Wrentham surrounded by his loving family. He joins his beloved wife Rose (Hebranko) Pasquantonio who passed in 1998. Frank was born in Wrentham on February 21, 1925 to his adoring parents Nicholas and Anne (Ronhock) Pasquantonio. He grew up in loving home with his siblings, John, Mary, Anna, George and Patricia. He often spoke of his childhood as an idyllic time in his life. He joined the Coast Guard at 17 years old to support his country during WW II. He met his wife Rose in Brooklyn, NY during this time and brought her back to Wrentham. They built a home on the same street Frank was raised on and Rose and Frank raised their five children there. He leaves behind his loving children and their spouses; James and Kathy Pasquantonio, Patricia and Jerry Braswell, George and Caroline Pasquantonio, Gary and Marge Pasquantonio, and Angela Pasquantonio. He was very proud of his children and their individual accomplishments. He is also survived by twelve grandchildren and their spouses; Michael and Sonia, Andrea and Chad, Gina and Alex, Julie and Ryan, Kelly, Mary, Joseph, Caroline, Paula, Nicholas and Bettina, Bobbie and Rasheed, and Jack, and seven great-grandchildren, Sophia, Ava, Evan, Avery, Madeline, Nova, and Bridget. Franks grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought him joy and comfort, especially during the last year. Frank also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. Frank was a proud veteran and was very proud of his sons James and Garys service in the military as well as that of his grandchildren Michael, Sonia and Nicholas. Frank was a Teamster and was very proud to be in the Teamsters Local 494. Frank was a Class A driver most of his career and received many safety awards during his 20 years at Continental Baking Company. Frank also drove for the Franklin Senior Center for many years and earned awards there as well; he was known for his kindness and patience. Frank had a strong work ethic and could fix anything. He enjoyed nature and camping and took many trips throughout the country especially to many National Parks. He also enjoyed gardening, boating, the ocean and he loved trees, especially oak trees. One of his favorite things to do was to simply sit in his backyard and enjoy the sun and trees. Frank will be much missed and remembered for his unconditionally loving ways. In lieu of flowers please plant a tree in Franks memory. Frank had a wonderful nurse, Adeline, from Gentiva Hospice during the last few months, hospice nurses are special people. A funeral Mass for Frank will be celebrated at St. Marys Church, 130 South Street, Wrentham on June 2, 2014 at 9 AM followed by burial in Mt Hope Cemetery, North Attleboro. Family and friends are welcome to meet after the service is complete at 21 Wampum Street, Wrentham for collation. Arrangements are under the direction of the RJ Ross Funeral Home, Wrentham.
