Francis “Frank” Famiglietti

Frank Famiglietti, a lifetime resident of Medford died on March 16, 2016 at home (the home in which he was raised) after a long brave battle with cancer. Survived by his loving wife Judy Hayworth Famiglietti, he was the son of the late Frank & Lena Famiglietti of Medford and the older brother of the late Paul Famiglietti of Malden. He was also the loving Godfather to Joanna Famiglietti of Everett and Uncle to Amy & Gary Famiglietti of Malden. Frank worked at GE where he assembled jet engines for over 30 yrs. He had a love for Harley Davidson motorcycles. He loved to ride his Harley but his love for the bike went beyond riding. He loved to take apart & rebuild his Harley, an art he mastered so well that he became well known & respected for his knowledge of The Harley Davidson motorcycle. He followed in his Dad’s footsteps & loved going to the VFW in Medford to visit the many friends he made there. He enjoyed life being a prankster. People loved him for his funny, wise guy personality. You never knew what was going to come out of his mouth but one thing you did know was that you were going to laugh. Those who had the pleasure of knowing him, loved him & will miss him. Services will be private at the convenience of his family. To leave a condolence or share a memory, please click below.

    Frank & I were together for 38 years. We met in March, and he left me this March. I miss you so much. Just as you said that I would.
    You really fought a valiant 10 year battle with your health. RIP my love.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Frank through his wife Judy. I will always remember the time they helped this single mom get a Christmas tree; the biggest on the lot and Frank insisted the guy sell it to me at a good price. He helped set it up so Judy, Kyle and I could decorate it. At 2 in the morning the tree fell over and blocked my bedroom door; I had fun busting his chops the next day. But seriously, Frank had a sweet side that not everyone may have had the pleasure of seeing I am grateful I got to. God has taken away your pain; you’re with your parents and brother watching down on those you love on earth. Until we meet again rest in peace Frank.

    Frank was not only a neighbor but a friend as well. I choose to remember his wise cracks & the many laughs we shared. Although he is no longer with us, I’m sure he is pain free and watching over Judy & his family as well as his friends from above. God bless, with Love, Linda & John. ..

    I remember the first time I visited Boston, how Frank took a whole day to show me around the city. He asked me to give him some “lucky numbers” he could play at a bar and we quickly found out how unlucky I am!!! But he loved me anyway. 🙂 Frank was a funny guy and he sure will be missed!

    My condolences to Judy, Joanna, and other members of Frank’s family. I first met Frank in 1984 when I visited Boston for some schooling. He and Judy kindly invited me to stay with them while I was there. Frank made the best swordfish and stuffed mushrooms I have ever eaten. He was a great guy and will be greatly missed.
