Frank A. Spino Memorial Fund
By Jean Cohoon / January 24, 2017 /   Loading Disqus...
This fund was established by Letty (Spino) Raponi, Ralph Raponi, and Anthony Raponi “in loving memory of Letty’s kind, generous, and loving husband.”

Frank is greatly missed by his best friend, Ralph, who has many memories of Frank’s smile, jokes, and good times together.

Frank loved the outdoors, being on his boat fishing, gardening, playing tennis, and golfing at Kirkbrae Country Club where he was a member for many years and twice got a hole in one. A lover of music, especially jazz, he played bass with a local band.

He was a designer of decorative items and owner and president of Floral Craft, Inc. His wife, Letty, was his partner and they traveled many times to the Far East where he made friends wherever they went.

The Raponis share, “Frank lived an active life, but always had time for his family and friends. He left us much too soon. We would like his legacy to go on forever and are designating the Rhode Island Community Food Bank to be the recipient of this fund.”
