Frank Ferzoco headed on a new adventure June 13, 2020, hoping to reconnect with his folks, Carlise Ferzoco and Irene Riley who gave life to Frank on November 5, 1944. A personality larger than life, he grew up in Walpole playing baseball, hockey, and candlepin bowling. Frank then married Barbara Harden moved to San Jose, CA, where they had a son and then a granddaughter, David and Katelyn Meyers. He attended college where he received a business degree and worked and gained knowledge in the wine industry. Frank returned to Western Mass and worked for Hueblin Liquors. He then met his wife of 34 years, Tammy Tessier Ferzoco, and together they had many travel experiences. He became Fast Frank the Hot Dog Vendor, then moved to Cape Cod where he started a cord wood business. He was also a landscaper, a caterer, and he had a hot sauce business. Frank was well known in the BBQ world as Dr. Frank “n” Swine, winning many awards and pleasing hundreds of people with his amazing smoked meats and sauces. Frank loved to go to Nauset Beach for sunsets and the moon rise, having many of his close friends enjoying the spectacular event. He was a huge New England sport fan, fisherman, boater, and was a talented gardener. Frank will be greatly missed for all his jokes and humor. He was the life of the party, which he threw many of. In addition to his loving wife, he is survived by his brothers, Rob Ferzoco and his wife Ann, and their children Dan, Tony, Laura and Mary; his brother, Mike Ferzoco and his wife Hope; his sister in law, Debby Beaulieu and her husband Paul, and their kids Chris (Boo), and Ryanne (Dawson); his brother in law Scott Tessier and his wife Ann and their children, Kathryn, Jeremiah, and Gabrielle; his brother in law, Donald Tessier and his wife Ashlyn and baby Olivia; and many cousins and a large amount of friends. A celebration of life will take place on Cape Cod in the Fall. Donations may be made in memory of Frank to Brewster Animal Rescue, 398 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631. Arrangements are under the care and trust of Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society, Ft. Myers, FL.

    Where to begin? My brother Frank was to me a bigger than life character. Like his father before him, Frank was a HUGE Patriots fan. He absolutely LOVED a good laugh. He mentored me in countless ways, teaching me the nuances of joke telling- pauses, etc. We had some legendary ski trips that were simply unforgettable. He was strong minded and strong willed. And just plain strong. In the rare occasions we found ourselves on the inside of a saloon, NOBODY ever messed with us! Frank would back off barflys with basic schoolyard comebacks-
    " comere and say that!" Frank would bellow- never having a taker. They would size him up and think better of it. We took in LEGENDARY rock shows- The WHO, The Moody Blues come to mind. Oh, and he chaperoned my senior class ski trip. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse! Lotsa laughs, nobody hurt. BTW, his sports/trivia knowledge was truly encyclopedic. I'll miss you more than I can express.
    Your loving "baby brother", Michael

    Dear Tammy,
    So sad to hear of the loss of your loving husband and friend. Frank was such a bundle of fun, and always livened up any gathering. I'm glad I knew him.
    Now my thoughts are with you. Just want you to know you're in my heart. .

    Tammy, Rob and Michael,
    So sorry for your loss. Will never forget Frank's smile, laughter and bad jokes! One thing we know for sure is that wherever he is now, he brought the party with him.

I am so happy your life was full of fun and love ..you deserved all of what life had to offer. Recognizing me at Stop & Shop. Orleans years ago made the circle complete.. Still the ole fuzzy I remembered. I’ll never forget you , my one and only high school hero ..

    My trips to Orleans were not complete unless I saw Fuzzy. We often met for breakfast at Homeport. He would always brighten my day with his good nature and humor. And WOW could he make fabulous BBQ! One of my favorite memories is driving down the Nauset Spit in their wheel drive with Fuzzy and Tammy. We watched the moon rise over the Atlantic and behind us was the sunset. The weather was perfect. It was spectacular. I will miss you my dear friend.
