For 15 years, and until retirement, Frank worked as a Truck Driver for South Postal Annex in Boston, a job he enjoyed and where he made many life-long friends.

The family moved to Revere over 44 years ago from East Boston, where they had lived for over 20 years. For 44 years, Frank was a devotee of St. Mary of the Assumption Parish, serving as a faithful usher and Sunday collector. He also served as a volunteer where needed in many of the church functions. His joy at St. Mary’s was most evident in the greetings he would accord parishioners.

He is the devoted father of Denise Stasio & her husband David T. of Revere, Mark Silvestro & his wife Linda of Rowley & Claudia DiMare & her husband Joseph of South Weymouth. He is the cherished grandfather of Joshua Stasio & Revere Patrolman Mark V. Silvestro, both of Revere, Adam Stasio & his wife Guinevere of Atkinson, New Hampshire, Christopher F.
