Alexander "Frank" Giorgetti was born on February 18, 1918 in Roxbury, MA. He graduated from high school in South Boston, and when he registered for the draft in October, 1940, he was working for Daniel Marr & Son in Boston. (Daniel Marr & Son played a major role in the development of the Boston skyline--providing steel and precast concrete erection.)
Frank enlisted on January 25, 1944; his enlistment record shows that he was employed at the time in the category of "semiskilled welders and flame cutters." He was released from the Army on June 26, 1946.
After the war he worked at the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston, where he was employed in 1948, per a Boston City Directory.
Some time after that he married Bessie Lazzara, and they had two daughters: Sandra and Diane. They eventually moved to Quincy, MA.
Frank died on November 23, 1993 in Quincy, and is buried at St Michael's Cemetery in Roslindale, MA.
