Gloucester – James J. Frontiero, 88, known to most as Jim, Jimmy, Dad or Grampy, died on September 22, 2020 at Beverly Hospital.
Born in Gloucester to parents Salvatore and Mary, James was the beloved husband to Josephine (Tamarindo) Frontiero of 66 years. He adored Josephine and the life and family they built together.
James served proudly in the U.S. Navy in the Korean War as a gunner’s mate aboard the USS Clarence K. Bronson (DD-668). Upon returning home, he worked as an iron worker at Cape Ann Tool Company for over 30 years. He loved to travel with his wife, family, and close friends. In the warmer months, you could find him swimming in his pool with his grandchildren or lying in the sun. He loved Fourth of July cookouts at his home with his family and “the gang” of his closest friends-it was the highlight of each year. He especially loved watching his grandchildren’s sporting events, whether it was wiffle ball in his back yard, dance recitals or traveling around the state watching soccer games. James was ecstatic to meet his first great-grandchild Ava Josephine, born in January of this year.
He leaves behind a large, loving family including his brother John Frontiero and wife Sarah in Florida, his brother, Sam Frontiero in Florida, his sister Grace Beauparlant, his brother-in-law, Anthony Tamarindo and companion Joanne Aiello, his sister-in-law, Rosemarie Lambert and husband Donald, his sister-in-law Gloria Nicastro, his loving children, Joanne Pszenny and husband Richard Pszenny, James Frontiero, Jr. and wife, Louise Frontiero and her children Errin and Erik, John Frontiero and his wife, Donna Frontiero, his grandchildren, Nicolas Pszenny and wife, Caitlin Pszenny, Sean Pszenny and girlfriend, Jessica Smith, Ella and Jack Frontiero, and his great-granddaughter, Ava Josephine Pszenny.
James was predeceased by his parents, his sister Pauline Marques, his brother-in-law Joseph Nicastro, and his first grandchild Jamey J. Pszenny, as well as his mother and father-in-law, Augusta and Antonio Tamarindo.
