Frank T. Giamo



WESTON, MASS./FRENCHBORO – Frank T. Giamo of Weston, Mass., and Frenchboro passed away Aug. 25, 2016 at age 98. Born in Waltham, Mass., he was the son of the late Dominic and Grace (Lazaro) Giamo.

A longtime resident of Weston, Frank started and owned Giamo Aluminum and Contracting Co. that manufactured safety arms for ladders, and founded, with a colleague, the company FranCon. He lived on Long Island, Maine, for over 20 years, where he used his skills as a spotter for the fishing industry.

His dear friends from Maine, whom he called “my adopted family,” continued to stay close to him. If you asked Frank what he did for a living, he said “everything: home improvement, fisherman!” His longevity of life was a gift to all who knew him, his memory amazing, and his stories and experiences kept you in awe and brought you into his generation. He loved life and work.

He is survived by his sister Doris T. Giamo and his sister-in-law Roseanne Giamo, both of Weston; many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. He was the former husband of the late Marjorie (Dalzell) Giamo; father of the late Ross T. Giamo and brother of the late Mary Duddy, Minnie Martenson and Joseph Giamo. A special tribute, thanks and recognition to Tina Ferrelli-Chartrand, a close cousin, neighbor and a caring, devoted friend.

Funeral will be private. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorial gifts may be made in Frank’s memory to the Visiting Nurses Association Care-Hospice, 254 Second Ave., Suite 200, Needham, MA 02494, vnacare.org.
