FRACASSO – John P. Fracasso, 93, passed away on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at Arden Courts in Avon CT. He was for 65 years the husband of Mary Sweet Fracasso, who passed away in 2012. Upon graduation from The Gilbert School in 1943, John enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served for the remainder of World War II on the USS Miami in the Pacific. John was a father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and he retired in 1989 after many years with Connecticut Light & Power. He was a longtime volunteer for the Aerial Ladder Company of the Winsted Fire Department, and a lifetime member of the Winsted B.P.O.E. (Elks). In 1992, John and Mary retired to South Yarmouth MA where John was active for many years in local bowling leagues, stamp collecting, caring for their beloved terrier mix, Z.Z., and entertaining their children, grandchildren and other family and friends who visited often on Cape Cod.

He is survived by his children, Grace Fracasso (Robert Coan) of Acton MA; Peter Fracasso (Susan Avery) of Enfield CT; Jean Fracasso (William Koldys) of Torrington CT; John Fracasso, Jr. (Lita Orefice) of Providence RI; 6 grandchildren; 1 great-grandson; and numerous nieces and nephews.
