Frank L. St. Aubin

October 14th, 2021

Frank L. St. Aubin died peacefully on October 12, 2021 at the age of 91. The beloved patriarch of our family was born in Boston on November 28, 1929. He was the son of Andre and Margaret (Noble) and the brother of his adoring sisters, Robina and Margaret, who survive him in Fort Myers, Florida.

Frank served his country in the United States Navy Reserves during the 1950’s. It was during that time period, he met and married his faithful wife, Dorothy. These dear people walked together for over 68 years in God-given love. Dorothy, who is 93, still resides in Wilmington. Together they raised 4 surviving children: Lori (David) Johnston of Greentown, PA, Steve (Maureen) St. Aubin of Taunton, MA, Audrey (John) Ziegenfus of Binghamton, New York, and Mark (Linda) of Wilmington, MA.

Frank took great delight in his 10 grandchildren: Josh (Autumn), Holly (Logan), Brian (Jessica), Jess (Jeff), Michael (Jessica), Laura (Micah), Karen (Tim), Jeremy (Marie), Michelle (Matt) and Andrew (Jenah) and his 21 great grandchildren: Ryken, Talen, Benaiah, Brinley, Sydney, Adam, Ian, Ezekiel, Wyatt, Levi, Zachary, Lucas, Molly, Ellie, Benjamin, Katherine, Wesley, Calvin, Marcus, Aiden, and Lincoln. The quality of this legacy is a testimony to the grace of God channeled through the example and sacrifice Frank left for them.

Frank was a man with a deep capacity to love. He loved his work, where he rose to become the president of Bay State Box Company. He loved his church, where he served faithfully Jesus Christ throughout his adult life. He loved his cottage on the lake in New Hampshire, where he would entertain 4 generations of the St. Aubin clan. He especially loved his family. Years of hard work, wise counsel, and kind generosity earned him much love and respect. We knew him to be humble, patient, and tirelessly interested in their lives. He shared more laughs and memories with us than we could ever repay.

It is our desire to honor his life and his Lord with visiting hours on Monday, October 18th 4:00 – 7:00 pm at the Nichols Funeral Home,187 Middlesex Ave, Wilmington, MA. We will hold a funeral service and celebration of his life on Tuesday October 19, 12:00 at the Wilmington Congregational Church, 220 Middlesex Avenue, Wilmington, MA 01887.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Fisher House Foundation for disabled veterans and their families, 12300 Twinbrook Parkway, Suite 410, Rockville, MD 20852.

    We were saddened to hear of Frankie’s passing. He touched all our lives. Every summer we would go to the cabin at Lake Ossipee for a few days where we enjoyed great conversation and plenty of fun playing games and cards. We loved hearing his interesting stories.

    Sorry for your loss

  13. Ed & Nora says:

    We’re sending our thoughts & prayers to Dorothy & her large family. We met Frank at Ossipee Mountain Baptist Church, Ctr Ossipee, NH when he would be up to his summer cottage. Frank & Dottie were always cheerful & upbeat, glad to see us on Sundays & joined our small Christian group of approximately 10 folks. Frank was a “part-timer” with a full time heart for this ministry. When the church’s oil burner failed a few years ago, and had to be replaced for winter services, Frank was right there with generous financial assistance.
    Frank worked very hard, into his 80’s, and had many blessings. But his Christian spirit was always ready to help others.
    We love Frank & Dottie & look forward to seeing him in heaven.

  14. Tim and Dawn Jones says:

    May each of you find great comfort in the hope given through Jesus of eternal rest.
    Our prayers are with you.

  15. Bob & Judy Ziegenfus says:

  17. Nancy Weser says:

    A life well lived! Keeping them laughing in heaven! A fine example of Christian Faith, rest in peace Uncle Frank.

  18. Cheryle Sackett says:

    Fond and loving memories come at this time but also have remained in our minds over the years when Phil and I were junior high youth group leaders when Audrey and Mark were in our care. We were beginning our own family then and Frank and Dottie were wonderful support and special friends to us especially because we had no close family nearby.
    Phil died nearly 14 years ago but if he were here today he would echo these same recollections and sentiments. I can imagine he and Frank are having fun talking about those times together.
    Wish I could be with you to give you all a good hug especially Dottie. Thank you for what you all meant to us.

  19. Laurel Cecere says:

    I have fond memories of the whole
    family and I know my husband, Bruce.
    Cecere had high regard for the family.
    We enjoy a kitchen remodeled by his son and
    they supported Bruce in many ways!
    I am sorry I couldn’t make the wake or funeral due to
    previous obligations! My prayers are with the family!
    May God bless!
