Francis G. Albertini

February 11, 1937 — September 15, 2022

Ayer, MA

Francis G. Albertini (Frank), beloved husband, father, and grandfather died on September 15, 2022. He spent his final days at home surrounded by his loving family. 

 

Frank was born on February 11, 1937 in Somerville, Massachusetts. Frank was raised in Arlington, Massachusetts where he was an avid baseball and football player. He met his future wife, Joan, the summer before his junior year of high school and they were married in 1958. 

 

He began his engineering design career at Raytheon in the 1950s and shortly thereafter joined GTE, later known as General Dynamics. During this time, he also traveled to United States missile and radar sites to evaluate, inspect, and assist with installation of his designs. Frank retired from General Dynamics in 1999. As a young man, he served in the Army National Guard for seven years, reaching the rank of Staff Sergeant. 

 

Frank and Joan raised three children in Arlington, later moving to Bedford, MA, Salem, NH, and finally to Ayer, MA.

 

Frank spent the last 10 years compassionately caring for the love of his life, Joan. Prior to this, Frank and Joan spent much of their time enjoying a bit of travel, their grandchildren, and just simply being with one another.

 

Frank is survived by his wife, Joan (Schwamb) Albertini of Ayer, his children, James Albertini of Arlington, John Albertini of Belgrade, ME, and Joanne Williams and her husband Robert of Harvard, and his grandchildren, Carly Williams of Somerville, and Mitchell Williams of Amsterdam, Netherlands. He is predeceased by his parents, Louis and Phyllis (Lamborghini) Albertini.
