Obituary

Frank J. Horgan, 89, longtime Auburn resident, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021 at Beaumont Rehabilitation in Northbridge.

He leaves his loving wife, Gertrude M. (Tobin) Horgan; his children, Thomas Horgan and his wife Lisa of San Antonio, TX, and Timothy Horgan and his wife Elizabeth of Charlton; his grandchildren, Wilfredo, Aimee and husband Aaron, Caitlyn, Ryan and wife Megan, Patrick, Jonathan and wife Chrissie, Benjamin, and Sarah; his great-grandchildren, Destiny, Jasmine, Jadalyn, Wilfredo, Jr., Kaitlyn, Kassie, Kenley, Leighton, Steven; son-in-law, Bob Malone of North Brookfield and daughter-in-law, Deb Horgan of Oxford; as well as several nieces and nephews, and good friend, Greg Gray of Oxford.

Frank was predeceased by his children, Joanne F. Horgan, Steven J. Horgan, and MaryAnn Malone; his siblings, Helen Noone, Elizabeth Scavone, and James Horgan; and their parents, Stephen J. Horgan, Jr. and Helen (Gallagher) Horgan.

Born and raised in Worcester, he was a graduate of Commerce High School, Class of 1950. In 1952, Frank enlisted in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean Conflict and completed, in total, 16 years of service. He dedicated over 35 years of his career to State Mutual Insurance Company, from which he retired in 1990.

In his free time, Frank enjoyed watching baseball, but especially coaching all age groups up to and including Legion Hall. His latest coaching was with Oxford Little League coaching 4 year olds which was the biggest joy of his life. He was a member of the Auburn Lodge of Elks. Frank was happiest when he was on a cruise ship – it didn’t matter where it was going!

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Melanoma Research (melanoma.org/) or to the American Heart Association (heart.org/).

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with the Horgan family between 9:30 and 11:00 AM on Thursday, June 10th, 2021 at the BRITTON-WALLACE FUNERAL HOME, 91 Central Street, Auburn, with a prayer service beginning at 11. Burial, with military honors, will follow at North Cemetery, Oxford.

Frank is the younger brother of my beloved late Aunt, Helen Horgan Noone. For the whole of her life she always looked after him with the caring love of a devoted sister. My prayers are with the entire family

Fran, Heaven celebrates your presence while we weep. I will never forget the support you and Gert gave to me when I campaigned to be a member of the Auburn School Committee. You were a good listener, a hard worker, and gave me good advice while I served to be humble and abide by the Constitution. You held signs in the rain, attended meetings of various boards, supported youth sports. A good and faithful servant. A Patriot.. Blessings,
Jennifer and Stephen P. Johnson

Gert and Family,

Joanne and I are so sorry for your loss. We both have fond memories of the Good Ol Days at State Mutual. I thought of Fran often and kick myself for not staying in touch.
