Obituary of Frank Scarpino
A beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 20, 2023 at the age of 71. He was a devoted family man who adored his wife, Michelle, and his children, Stephanie (Barry) and Mathew. Frank was also a proud grandfather to Sarah and Natalie, who affectionately called him Papa. He is survived by his siblings, Maria (Cosmo) Tassone and John (Nikki), as well as many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. Frank will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Frank was born in Scigliano, Italy, in 1951, and moved to Canada with his family when he was just three years old. Frank graduated from Brock University with a degree in teaching, and went on to teach in Toronto for many years with the Toronto Catholic District School Board. He was a dedicated educator who made a positive impact on countless students' lives. In addition to his work as a teacher, Frank was an active member of his community. He coached hockey, baseball, and basketball and served as the president of the Gymastics Club. He also volunteered at the snack bar at Rotary Park, where he made many friends and was known for his infectious smile and positive attitude. Frank also had a passion for horse racing and loved nothing more than watching and betting on the races.
He was a kind, caring, and generous man who will be deeply missed by all who knew him. His legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched throughout his life.
In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family Celebration of Life will take place. Arrangements are entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. Donations in Frank's memory may be made to Parkinson Canada.
