Robert  Arthur Frank “Papa”, 81 years old, passed away unexpectedly on November 9, 2021 after a brief illness. He was born May 13, 1940 and grew up in South Weymouth. He lived for 56 years in Hanson where he and his loving bride Donna brought up their family.

Papa was a welder by trade. He enjoyed fishing and drives in his convertible. He also loved coaching youth baseball for his kids and was an avid Red Sox fan.

Robert was raised a Master Mason for 46 years beginning April 22, 1975 and belonged to the Wessagusset Lodge.

He was a loving husband to his late wife Donna Murray Frank for over 50 years. Proud father of his late daughter Pamela Calnan and late son, Robert A. Frank  Jr. He is survived by son David S.
