Tribute & Message From The Family

EASTON----Frank "Sonny" Pucillo, passed away peacefully on May 23, 2018 surrounded by family after a brief illness at the age of 82.

He was the son of the late Almanto and Alice (Bellarosa) Pucillo of Hyde Park. Brother to Alice Piaskowski of Dedham, Michael Pucillo and his wife Marie of Bridgewater and the late Dorothy Willette, Rosemary Pucillo and Almanto Jr. Pucillo. He was also an uncle to many nieces and nephews.

He was the loving husband to the late Barbara (MacDonald) Pucillo whom he was married to for fifty years and the devoted father of Richard Pucillo and his wife Andrea of Easton, Joseph "Bud" Pucillo and his wife Lynn of West Bridgewater and Kimberly McIlvene of Easton.

Frank served three years in the United States Marine Corps as a mechanic stationed in North Carolina. Amongst his many hardworking years, Sonny most cherished his time as an Easton Public Schools custodian where he made lasting relationships with the staff and enjoyed watching his grandchildren grow. In his most recent years, he was proud to have been promoted to Field Supervisor of Shovel Towne Homes where he best performed his duties from the passenger seat of his son's truck with a coffee in hand and witty one-liners.

He was better known as "Gramp" to his five grandchildren – Cassandra (Pucillo) Bohane, Amanda (Pucillo) Emond, Antonia (Pucillo) Brockman, Jacqueline (Pucillo) Hixon and Brett McIlvene. They will always remember him for his famous pizza, his love for the Red Sox and his charm. He looked forward to his Boston sports conversations with his grandsons-in-law and treasured his eight great-grandchildren and all the happiness and laughter they brought. Some of his happiest moments during recent years were spent with his late companion, Marilyn Bianchi, and he relished in the loving attention of her daughters and their families.

Frank enjoyed life, sports and friends but above all else, he loved his family. He will be forever missed and forever in the hearts of those who loved him.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours on Tuesday from 4-7 p.m. in Kane Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 605 Washington Street (Rte.138) Easton, followed by a funeral service at 7:00 p.m. in the funeral home.

Sonny was always a class act. He always treated my family and I with the love and respect. I deeply admired Sonny's devotion to his wife and family. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. Sonny gave us the privilege of walking Susan down the Aisle on our wedding day. A memory that will always be with me and a gratitude I will forever cherish. Thank you for always being there for Susan and thank you for being such a special father, grandfather and uncle.

Rest is peace.

We will miss our Union Villa dinners, watching the Red Sox, and debateable talks about politics. But most of all, we will miss his smile, his kind heart, the love he brought into our entire family.

Frank taught all of that fairy tales really do come true, and that true love is out there waiting for you when you least expect it. He taught is to live every moment as if it were your last, and to cherish your family above all else.

With deepest sympathy and love,
The Becker Family -
Donna, Michael, Jake, Sam, and Luke

I knew Sonny at the Y in downtown Brockton -- he was one of the regular morning crew -- always a smile and making everyone laugh. Still miss him!
