Robert F. Famulari

WAREHAM – Robert “Farmer” Franklin Famulari, 78, of Wareham, died Nov. 4, 2020 at Tobey Hospital.  He was the husband of 53 years of Jo-Anne M.(Lutton) Famulari and the son of the late Anthony and Mary (Ciccollo) Famulari.

He was born and raised in East Boston and attended and graduated from Boston schools.

He worked as a Systems Analyst at John Hancock Life Insurance Co for 38 years retiring in 2000.

He met the love of his life, Jo-Anne, when they were teenagers.  They married, raised a family of 3 children in Brockton then retired to Wareham in 2006.  He loved to play cribbage and cards with his friends and was quite good at both.  He played softball for years and also coached Babe Ruth Baseball in Brockton and was known by the name “Coach” and “Farmer” by many players.

In his retirement, he and his wife took several trips to Vegas, and they loved it.  He also worked part-time for a movie theater punching tickets.  All the little kids loved him, and he always made them smile!  His boisterous laugh and big presence will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Survivors include his wife, Jo-Anne M. (Lutton) Famulari; daughter, Debra and her fiancé, John of Newburyport; son, Robert F. Jr.  and wife Julie of Stoughton and Christopher and his fiancé, Kate of N. Attleboro; loving grandchildren, Sarah, Joseph and Sadie who lovingly called him “Bumpy”.
