Obituary

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of John Franko “Frank” Morassutti on Thursday, April 8, 2021. He was born in Creighton, Ontario on May 5, 1940. He passed peacefully at Health Sciences North, Sudbury, after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

Beloved husband of Lidia “Lee” (Veccia) Morassutti for over 57 years. Loving father of Tracy Bartolucci (Mark) and Kelly Tushingham (Graham). Cherished Nonno of Jacob and Grace Bartolucci, and Callaway and Frankie Tushingham. Dear son of Giovanni and Gemma (Fabris) Morassutti both predeceased. Dear brother of Mario Morassutti predeceased (Ofelia) and brother-in-law to Lucy Cerri (Tino predeceased), Marcia Boag and Barbara Canning. Will be sadly missed by nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends.

Frank was a man who loved everything. He loved family, friends, work, connections with people, camp, swimming, golfing, curling, fishing, skiing, being outdoors, food and much more.

Frank truly lived life to the fullest. He had a long career as a business owner, a financier, and an insurance broker. He was a loving family man, a musician, proud Italian and dedicated volunteer. After over 40 years of offering his support and leadership to many organizations, he was happy to receive the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers (the highest honour for volunteer service that one can receive within the Canadian Honours System). Some of the organizations included the Caruso Club, VON, Sudbury Memorial Hospital, Idylwydle, and the Fogolar Furlan Club.

Frank treasured time with family and friends. He was extremely patient, always encouraging, resilient, and had a life-long love of learning. Nothing was a chore for Frank. He found the positives in everything, even the most routine tasks. Even in his illness, he was always optimistic. He will be remembered as one of the most positive and warm people you would ever meet.

Frank loved everything.

Special thank you to LHIN Management and Staff and all PSWs; VON Daycare; all the wonderful staff, doctors, nurses, PSWs at Health Sciences North; Parkinson’s Support Group, and our family and many friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Parkinson’s Support Group, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada or the Alzheimer’s Society would be greatly appreciated.

Funeral prayers will be held in the R. J. Barnard Chapel, Jackson & Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury on Wednesday, April 14th, 2021 at 1pm. Friends may gather after 11am Wednesday.

I had the distinct pleasure of getting to know and work with Frank for many years prior to his retirement. Frank was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He was a passionate advocate for his clients and he represented them very well. I learned a great deal from him and for that I will be eternally grateful.

I was with Frank on one of his finest days on the golf course many years ago. We were at my company tournament just North of Toronto and Frank was in my foursome. On one of the par 3 holes Frank managed to get a hole-in-one...everyone around the area was very excited for Frank and there were many congratulatory handshakes and high-fives. Frank was very gracious and accepted all of the accolades with humility.

It was an honour to know Frank, work with him but most of all to call him my friend. He will be missed.

Franco Rasetta, Travelers Insurance Company of Canada.
