Frank G. Miranda, 83, Little Compton

Frank G. Miranda, 83, of Little Compton, passed away Sunday, December 20, 2020, at Charlton Memorial Hospital.  He was the beloved husband of Linda (Wetherell) Miranda.  He was born in Fall River to the late Manuel and Mary (Rebello) Miranda. 

Frank was a self-employed master plumber prior to retiring.  He loved spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, who he loved to give pinches and bites to and also gave nicknames to, and, when he ran out of nicknames, they were all “Harry.” He enjoyed spending time in his yard by his pond, cutting & splitting wood, country & western music (especially Hank Williams) and clambakes at home with his family and friends. He was well known for his generosity and kindness, and will be extremely missed by all who knew him.  

Besides his wife of 62 years, he is survived by his five children, Frank G. Miranda Jr. of Tiverton, Linda Neronha and husband John of Tiverton, Patti-Lyn Henriques and husband William of Swansea, Joyce Brousseau and husband John of Little Compton, and Judy Manchester and husband Roald of Little Compton; his ten grandchildren, Frank Miranda III, Jennifer Arruda, William Miranda, Crystal Henriques, Nicole Henriques, Holli Molzon, William Henriques, Patricia Brousseau, Joshua Manchester and Nancy Miranda; and ten great-grandchildren, Austin, Patience, Makayla, Isabel, Mason, Adler, Leona, Zander, Liam and Ben. He was predeceased by his 12 siblings.

Due to the current events, the family has chosen to have a Celebration of Life in the spring.   Private cremation is entrusted with the Boule Funeral Home, 615 Broadway, Fall River.  Please offer your condolences or a memory of Frank in our guestbook.  Memorial gifts may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
