It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Francis “Frank” A. Kraus from Providence, RI. On October 22, 2019 he entered eternal life peacefully with his loving family by his side. Born in Providence, he was the beloved son of the late Stanley and Margaret (Innocenti) Kraus. He will be forever remembered as a loving husband, brother, family member and friend.
Frank is survived by his wife, true love and best friend of 37 years, Camile Perino; a brother Stanley Kraus; a sister Margie Medeiros; a godson Seth Beauchaine; a nephew Joel Parrillo; nieces Dawn Martins and Kathy Palumbo; along with his great-nieces and great-nephews. He was also the brother of the late Nancy Kraus and the son-in-law of the late Josephine “JoJo” Pard.
Frank was a barber for many years spending 30 of them at Rome’s Haircutters in Plainville, Ma. He had many clients who easily became long time friends. He was a History buff, an avid sports fan and he was a devoted fan of the Raiders & Alabama Crimson Tide football teams. He loved to have his breakfast with the guys at “Papa Paulies” on his days off. He enjoyed the holidays and time spent with his family and friends, especially dinners out with his wife and “the boys” Joel and Seth.
He will be truly missed by many.
