“Those small moments when a family member pulls me aside and whispers “Thank you” are what I live for. Those two words that are read as common courtesy are weighted with so much emotion and relief, and you can truly feel that.”
Frank Maggiore became interested in funeral service during college while working a summer job as a pallbearer and groundskeeper at a local crematory. He was quickly promoted to Chamber Operator and was inspired by the level of care and thought that his manager brought to the families in their service.
As a Funeral Director Apprentice at Keohane, Frank does whatever is needed to support our funeral directors and our families on any given day. His responsibilities include preparing stationary, taking flowers to a cemetery, serving as a pall bearer, setting up visiting hours, taking phone calls overnight, completing transfers, applying cosmetics, and all other tasks that facilitate a family’s final goodbye to their loved one.
Frank grew up in Braintree with seven brothers and sisters, but he recently moved into his grandparents’ old house in Quincy with his girlfriend. Frank’s younger brother Carmen has autism, and Carmen has been a huge influence on Frank as a person. “He has cultivated a level of patience in me that has helped me with this job and in life,” said Frank.
Outside of work, Frank spends time with his girlfriend, family and friends. When he’s not working on sprucing up the house, he likes to garden and make use of his greenhouse. He also enjoys golf and disc golf.
Frank began his education at UMASS Lowell in engineering, then went to Quincy College for business. Once he became interested in funeral service, he started at American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service then transitioned into FINE Mortuary College. Frank became a Funeral Director Apprentice at Keohane in November of 2018 at our Weymouth location and transferred to our Quincy location in February of 2019. He enjoys working with a top-notch team that goes above and beyond not only for their families but for each other.
