Frank James Gallagher Jr., age 41, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 13, 2024, at his home in Stoughton, Massachusetts. Born in Orlando, Florida on February 14, 1982, he was the son of Frank James and Kimberly Ann (Baker) Gallagher. Frank was raised in Orlando, where he went to school and graduated.
Following his graduation, Frank made his home in various parts of Florida, but Orlando was always home base. He got his start in the landscaping field at a young age, developing his horticultural skills to earn a position with BrightView Landscape in 2016. Frank's main focus was in the irrigation department of BrightView, learning about all aspects of installation and maintenance of irrigation systems. In 2018, Frank left home and headed north to Massachusetts, where he made his home in North Attleborough with his fiancé Stacey Krewko and transferred to BrightView's northern offices. He worked hard to ensure all his customer's properties were meticulously maintained, even having a hand in the maintenance of Patriot Place in Foxborough. More recently, Frank made his home in Stoughton and took a management position with Auto Zone's Randolph location.
Throughout his life, Frank had an adventurous spirit. He looked forward to catching the perfect wave on his surfboard or throwing his leg over his Harley to venture out on the open road. His love for music led him to countless concerts and shows, checking out various scenes from Country to Rock to Metal, and everything in between. While the excitement of the ocean, the road, and venues were great, some of Frank's favorite moments were spent enjoying the simple, quiet moments. He loved being outdoors, whether camping, casting his line into the water, or entertaining with his friends. It was in these quiet moments that Frank's true talents came to light. He was a phenomenal artist, working with pencils and charcoal to create beautiful one-off pieces that he lovingly gave to his family and friends. His canvases will be cherished for lifetimes, ensuring his memory will live on.
