Francis D. Sposato, Jr. 70, a lifelong resident of Worcester passed away Monday, December 27th, 2021, after a period of medical challenges.

Francis was known by many names: Fran, Frankie, Dad, Uncle, Grampa.  He was born in Worcester, one of four sons of Grace M. (Pedone) Sposato and the late Francis D. Sposato, Sr.  He graduated from North High School and Worcester Junior College, and later attended Lowell Technical Institute for a period of time. Fran spent the last 43 years as an employee of the City of Worcester working for the Water Department.

Fran is survived by his three children, Mark F. Sposato and his wife Stacie of Southwick, Jeffrey A. Sposato and his wife Lynsi of Attleboro, Gina T.

For years Fran called bingo for many parishes in the City of Worcester, including Our Lady of The Rosary and Saint Christopher's Church.  Fran enjoyed fishing, the occasional trips to the casino, and yearly camping trips with his family. A dedicated father, Fran’s greatest moments in life were those spent involved in his families’ activities. As his children were growing, Fran devoted his time to coaching youth sports, attending dance recitals and competitions, and being involved in all his children’s activities. In his later life, he loved watching his grandchildren grow. His family always came first.
