As soon as I saw the Montecalvo name.
Brought back great memories.
Frank Sr still had his great smile.
Growing up in Washington Park
Everything was near by
Weybossett. Market, Colliers Bakery, Old Stone Bank
And of course Santos Meat Market.
Mr Montecalvo had a very nice meat market.
He would always say hello upon entering.
I probably started going when I was 12....
Washington Park was a nice place to grow up.
Many nationalities
Italian ,French, Irish, Portuguese, Greek, and Armenians as I am.
I thought it was so cool to go in and get things for my mother.
Liked to watch him make the cube steak in the machine and cut up the lamb leg for shish kebab.
Plus Frank had two handsome sons 🙂
Frank Sr must of been so proud of Frank Jr. when he opened up his own
“Montecalvos Market “ of course.
Frank jr. had a great teacher, he made sure he used the best quality
products as his father.

His memory will always be with us

My Uncle Frankie was made of all the spices of and sweet! He was quick with a smile and an argument. He was a true Renaissance man , since he was interested in everything and everyone and was proficient in many areas.
I would tease him about having a little black book that held everyone’s actions, good or bad. He loved to play cards with his family, which he took very seriously! His memory will live on with family stories. He will be missed.
