Francis Angelo's Story
Francis Angelo DiBona, II, 25, of Hanover, passed from complications after a long and courageous battle with leukemia on August 2, 2016. Frank is survived by his loving parents, Gregory and Sandra (Dawe) DiBona of Hanover, and devoted fiancé, Pamela Tobey of Gloucester. He was the cherished brother of Gregory, Jeana, and Charlotte, all of Hanover; and beloved grandson of Edgar and the late Jean Dawe of Weymouth, and the late Francis and Nancy DiBona. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. Frank was a 2009 graduate of Hanover High School, and a graduate of his dream school, the George Washington University in D.C., where he pursued his passion of politics and history. He was devoted to his Phi Kappa Psi fraternity brothers. While at GWU, he was the chairman of Philanthropy for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. He pursued his career in state and local politics, where he met the love of his life, Pam. Frank was an avid gamer, golfer, and fan of the Boston sports scene. Most of all, Frank’s greatest passion was his role as being a big brother to his three siblings. “Live ever, die never.”
