Francis L. Frew Obituary

Francis L. "Frank" Frew, age 93, passed peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Thursday, August 3

Frank, son of the late Joseph and Rosa Frew, was born in Ware and raised in West Brookfield.
He leaves his four daughters, Kathleen Prynoski and husband Guy of Ware, Susan Brogna and husband
Henry of West Brookfield, Brenda Frew of Prattville, Alabama, and Nancy Lagrant and her husband Marc
of Hardwick. He also leaves six grandchildren, Josh Paquette, Bekie Berg, Tory Otano, Luke Lagrant,
Hope Frew and Jonathan Lagrant; five great grandchildren Rucker, Rowan, Theo, Josie and Ally; his
brother Donald Frew of Georgia and sister Lorraine Frew of New Jersey; and many nieces and nephews.
He is predeceased by his sons Thomas and Francis, grandson Brandon and his brothers Robert, Richard,
and Joseph.
Frank was a private man. Never giving more information than was necessary. So, in lieu of that, we’ll tell
you this much.
Our Dad worked hard to provide for a growing family and was always there with advice and a helping
hand as we and our families grew. He grew up on the family farm in West Brookfield where he worked
hard with his brothers and father and developed a strong work ethic. In his adult working life, he wore
many hats and was a capable carpenter, businessman, truck driver, million-mile driver for Peter Pan Bus
Lines, Highway Superintendent and part time police officer.
He enjoyed playing cards with family and friends, coin collecting and had a passion for hunting and
fishing. He loved projects, especially building projects. From bird houses to three bay garages, barns and
a couple of houses. If there wasn’t a need for a project, he’d invent one. He will be greatly missed.
Our Dad was a frequent contributor to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, so the family asks that flowers be
omitted, and should you desire, please make a contribution to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at in his name.
