Frank Richard Morgera, Sr.

 

Frank Richard Morgera, Sr., was born on October 14, 1934, to Salvatore and Gertrude Morgera in Providence, Rhode Island. He was a cherished son, brother, husband, uncle, father, grandfather, and friend. Frank’s journey ended peacefully on April 20, 2024, and he leaves behind a legacy marked by service, community, and dedication.

 

Frank had a heart for service from an early age, joining the Navy at 17. He proudly served in the Korean War, traveling to Africa, Malaysia, and Japan. In 1955, he crossed the equator and became a time traveler by crossing the International Date Line. An active reservist for eight years, he served as a Sea Bee, where he cultivated his love of building things with his own two hands.

 

Frank continued his commitment to service through his lifelong affiliations with several community organizations. He was a life-long member of the IBEW, working as an electrician for 62 years, many of which were for the City of Sacramento. Frank had a love of camaraderie. He was a respected member of the Moose Lodge 2357, Knights of Columbus, and a lifetime member of the VFW Post 10125, all in Rancho Cordova.

 

His love of travel took him across the globe from continent to continent. Frank and his loving wife Anna made memories in Asia, Europe, and South America. They moved to Moscow for two and a half years, where they both worked for the American Embassy.

 

Frank was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Carl and Thomas, and his beloved sister, Muriel. He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Anna, their sons Frank Jr. (Donna) and Pete (Erica), and daughter Linda Hamilton. Frank was a doting grandfather to five grandchildren: Isiah (Orsi), Frank III (Genevieve), Tariq, Noah, and Elijah. He also leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, and many friends.

 

A devoted Red Sox and Patriots fan, Frank’s enthusiasm for his teams was only surpassed by his dedication to his family and community. Frank will be remembered for his robust spirit, generous heart, and unwavering integrity. He has left an indelible mark on all who knew him and will be deeply missed.
