Born in Utica, NY on November 6, 1954, Fran was the son of the late Frank A. and Catherine â€śKayâ€ť (Mariani) Marchio. Fran was raised and educated in Utica where he graduated from T.R. Proctor High School in 1972. He continued his education at M.V.C.C. where he earned an Associateâ€™s Degree in Civil Engineering. Fran was married to the former Regina â€śGinaâ€ť Tantillo in St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Church; the couple shared in a forty-four-year union filled with love and a strong devotion for each other and their family.
In his quiet unassuming manner, Fran touched the lives of many people. Under the tutelage of his father he excelled in the field of masonry; he was truly a skilled craftsman. As a young man he started F.A.M. Construction Company, Inc. This was a successful and well-respected contracting firm for more than 45 years. Fran was a businessman that created a special rapport with each of his customers and received many notes thanking him both for a job well done and the respect that he displayed to them. When Fran actually took time to relax, he enjoyed spending time at the family camp in the Adirondacks, which he built with his father and brother, and many memorable trips to New York City. After his retirement, he took a special interest in his vegetable garden, taking pride in sharing his produce with family and friends.
