Obituary for Francis X Sepuka

Francis X  Sepuka
Francis X. Sepuka,86, of Charlton passed away after a fulfilling life on Friday, August 31, 2018 at his home. He is predeceased by his loving wife of 64 years, Helen (Hannon) Sepuka.

Born in Peabody Massachusetts in 1932, the oldest son of the late Francis and Mary (Mekolsky) Sepuka (Szczepucha).

He leaves behind their five children Susan Haines of Middleborough, Francis Sepuka and his wife Sally of Charlton, Sandra Rano of Brookfield, Mark Sepuka and his wife Chris of N. Brookfield, and Lisa Courville and her husband Paul of Charlton; a legacy of grandchildren: Justin Donahue, Jared Sepuka, Jason Donahue, Heith Sepuka, Jamie Rozenas, Shawn Sepuka, Travis and Kristi Haines, Meaghan Reil, and Chase and Spencer Courville. He was also blessed to have 12 great-grandchildren. Frank also leaves behind his brother Paul and his wife Carol of Oxford as well as his brother Leo and his wife Cindy of New Bedford.

Frank was raised in the Vernon Street area of Worcester, where he enjoyed being big brother to Paul and Leo. The dangerous streets for three on a bike kept them busy and got them to where the needed to go. Frank was educated among the Brothers of St. John’s, a Temple Street scrapper! After which, He received a Bachelor’s Degree from Holy Cross and a Master’s Degree from Worcester State. Frank was enrolled in the Naval Officer’s Candidate School, just prior to marrying the love of his life Helen, for the second time.

Frank spent most of his life doing what he loved, teaching. Not only did he love teaching, he also sponsored a summer program at Camp Blanchard where he encouraged kids to be who they are supposed to be... you know who you are. He did this by enabling kids to participate and experience life outside of the city. He may have done this wearing a Native American outfit while rowing a canoe across the still waters of Sutton Falls or riding in on a horse, outside his comfort zone, to show the kids they could do anything. He touched so many kids in a positive way.

Frank was also very active in the Auburn Elks, where he often ran events like Bingo, Polish picnics, chicken barbecues and fundraisers to construct the lodge in Auburn. He also served twice as Exalted Ruler, but to us he was the Grand Poohbah! He was skilled at hosting events large or small. And after retirement these skills transitioned to his second home in West Palm Beach, where he hosted several events: holiday dances, trips, golf outings and of course the Super Bowl Party. Those retirees did not know what hit them! Sach attack!

Frank’s family extended beyond those mentioned, to the entire Hannon Clan, and of course the Terrasi girls. The fond memories of family gatherings, tumultuous discussions, or removing tar from little girls, not once, but twice, broadened the reach and impact he left behind.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Wednesday, September 5 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the Chapel of the BRITTON-WALLACE FUNERAL HOME, 91 Central Street, Auburn. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, September 6 at 10:00 AM in St. Joseph Church, 189 Oxford Street N, Auburn.
