Francis is predeceased by his mother Linda Jean Trottier of Millbury and grandfather, Robert Clement Trottier, Jr. of Auburn.

Frank grew up in Millbury where he got his GED from Millbury High School and most recently worked for Convergint and Alliance where he was excited to be working on state-of-the-art technology and security. He worked for various contracting companies, attended plumbing school, became an incredible electrician, and the ultimate handyman. He enjoyed jet skiing, riding and working on his Harley Davidsons, fishing, lifting weights, poker, firearms, hunting, biking, and scaring people from a dark corner by jumping out at them. Frank's favorite drink was Tito’s and cranberry and he loved steak tips and ice cream. Frank could figure out and fix anything he touched.

His daughter, Addy, was the light of his life. There isn't anything he wouldn't do for her. They enjoyed going to trampoline parks, horseback riding, bicycling, and playing in the lake in the summer. They goofed around together, and he loved being a father.

Frank finally met his soulmate, Nikki, and loved working on the new home they had just moved into together. They enjoyed long motorcycle trips, sushi, dining out, playing their favorite Keno numbers, getting together with friends, visiting family, and teasing Nikki's mom, Elaine. Their relationship was truly one of a kind and was excited about their future.

Frank had a number of friends whether it be at work, the gym, or through the sports he loved as well as jet skiing in New York with his friends Glenn, Kevin, and Wayne. Frank loved doing electrical work with Josh and Rudy. Frank used to work on his motorcycles with his father and they enjoyed riding together and work on his father's house in Maine with him. Frank would do anything for anyone and had the biggest heart.

Frank touched the lives and hearts of so many and will be greatly missed by all.

Frank's family and friends will join in a private cemetery burial and a Celebration of Life to be announced at a later date.
