Francis P. “Frank” Anton, Sr., 79, a 20-year resident of Davidsonville, MD and previously of Boston, MA, passed away at his home on January 2, 2018 surrounded by family. He was born on April 5, 1938 in Boston. He served in the U.S. Army. Frank worked as a bowling machine mechanic which led him to his love of the sport of bowling. He later pursued a career as a residential and commercial oil burner technician. He was an avid bowler and was inducted into the NEBA Hall of Fame this past August. Frank was also a New England sports fan taking pride in the Patriots and Red Socks! He also was a life time member of the Amvets (in Boston) and The American Legion Post 7 here in Maryland. His greatest joy, however, was his family and spending time with them.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents Frank Anton and Mary (Hart) Anton, his son, Francis P. Anton, Jr.(Tara) and his brother, Robert Anton. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Kathleen Anton; one son, Kevin Castor of Boston; two daughters, Robin (Stephen) Palmer of Katy, TX and Caroline (Joseph) Landry of Davidsonville; a sister-in-law, Joan Anton of Billerica, MA; five granddaughters, Haylee, Amber, Lily, Jaime and Chloe and a grandson, Brian.
