Frank S. Incropera, 91, of North Andover passed away Monday, July 30, 2018 at Sutton Hill Center in North Andover. He was born in Lawrence on August 29, 1926 to the late Santo and Jennie (Messineo) Incropera.
A U.S. veteran, Frank served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was employed as a Lawrence firefighter for Station Engine 6 before retirement. He was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching baseball and attending Lawrence High School football games, especially the old Lawrence-Lowell Thanksgiving rivalry with his son. He took great pride in attending his grandchildren’s events, treasuring those precious moments together. There was no greater joy for him than cheering them on while on the sidelines.

(Scuderi) Incropera of North Andover; his son, Steven “Sonny” Incropera and his wife, Lori of Rockport, MA; and his daughter, Diane Chrysikos and her husband, Lou of Westford; sisters, Mary DiPrima and her husband, Joseph of Salem, NH, Angie Lasley and her husband, Duane of Methuen.
