Frank T. Romajas

Frank T. Romajas, Jr., 86, a lifetime resident of Marion, Connecticut died peacefully at home on Saturday, September 9, 2023, after a short but valiant battle with cancer.  He was surrounded in his last weeks of life by his loving wife of 59 years, Ruth (Karczewski) Romajas, his eight loving children and their families.

Frank was born on March 25, 1937 to the late Frank and Genevieve (Ladzinski) Romajas.  He grew up in the Marion section of Southington, Connecticut, and graduated from Southington High School.  Frank was a proud veteran of the United States Army, serving in Nürnberg, Germany, where he met and fell in love with Ruth.

Frank was a dedicated family man, global traveler, and sports enthusiast.  He was a meticulous planner who regularly offered his detailed opinions and proposed solutions, solicited and unsolicited, to all problems big and small.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

In addition to his wife Ruth, Frank is survived by 8 children: Suzanne Romajas (Jose Antonio Ramos) of Washington, DC, Lisa Klem (Michael) of Southington, Kimberly Romajas of Southington, Christina Jacques (Sebastien)  of Dallas, TX, Rebecca Downie (Thomas) of Southington, Matthew Romajas of Marion, David Romajas of Plainville, and Jason Romajas (Karyn) of Fairfield; 15 grandchildren: Jennifer, Eric, Ryan, Rebecca, Nicolas, Rachel, Luke, Erica, Ethan, Erin, Zoe, Hannah, Kathryn, Nathan and Nicholas, and an ever-expanding number of great-grandchildren. He is also survived by two brothers, John “Jack” Romajas (Mary Jane) of Marion and Michael Romajas (Arlene) of Prospect, 2 sisters, MaryAnn Romajas and Margaret Romajas, both of Marion, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Genevieve Romajas, and his grandson, Aidan Stewart.
