LISBON FALLS: On July 3, 2019 Francis “Frank” Kacsmar joined Eva, his loving wife of 70 years, who passed in November. He passed at his home surrounded by his loving family & wonderful loyal friends. He was born in Lisbon Falls on May 26, 1922 a son of the late John and Annie (Katula) Kacsmar and grew up in the local area.

After attending Lisbon High School, he joined the U.S. Navy to serve his country during WWII. He graduated from torpedo school in Rhode Island and served in the South Seas. Because of his love of hunting and fishing, he left the Navy and worked as a weaver in the Worumbo Mill. He retired from Pejepscot Paper Mill where he was a colorist.

As a master craftsman he built the home he and with Eva raised their daughter in. His love of hunting, fishing and gardening drew in both young and old who looked to him for guidance. He taught his daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren to appreciate nature’s many gifts. His motto was “a man is only as good as his word” and a handshake seals the deal.

He is survived by daughter Linda, granddaughters Michelle Gustwick & husband Chris, Jennifer David & husband Derek, great grandchildren Nicholas, Cali, Cooper and Cody. The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at the VA hospital and Androscoggin Home Healthcare and Hospice for their loving care and support!

Our condolences to the family. Frank was spoken of fondly and always part of a “duo”, Frank&Eva. Though not of blood he was always “Uncle Frank”. He will be missed with fondest memories. Hope he finds his happy hunting and fishing lands in the hereafter as we all know how much he enjoyed them, along with his Weimaraners as his K-9 companions. Rest In Peace .
All Our Love, Marie & Larry
