Acme Printing President, Francis Canzano Jr., Succumbs to Cancer
Industry and community involvement has been an important and constant theme to Mr. Canzano. Printing industry organizations in which Fran has held leadership positions are: Boston Litho Club, Boston Club of Printing House Craftsmen, P.I.N.E. and P.I.A.
His contribution to the community has been consistent and significant. Most notably, Mr. Canzano was a past director of the Don Orion Home for Elderly, a trustee of the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and a director (for 22 years) of the New England Home for Little Wanderers, an orphanage and private child welfare agency.
Fran served in the US Coast Guard, was an avid boater and golfer, and loved the ocean and the Cape. Even though he was admired as a successful businessman, he felt his most important role was as a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.
Fran will be remembered by all who knew him as having a true passion for the printing business and always caring about the people around him – whether they were family, colleagues, customers or friends. He will be laid to rest on October 16, 2009 in Centerville, MA.
