Adam Frati Obituary, Death – On February 27, 2022, Adam Frati passed away calmly in the comfort of his own home. He was 92 years old. On April 16, 1929, he was born to parents Enrico Frati and Alice Jeanette Hellenbrand Frati. His birth was registered as taking place on that day. Adam has never been employed by anyone but himself. Frati Jewelers was established in Pittsfield, Maine, by him and his brother Hugo when he was only 17 years old. In the future, he constructed the Carriage Inn restaurant in Pittsfield and was the owner and operator of Frati Mobile Homes, both located in Pittsfield. After moving to Brunswick in 1976, he became the owner of the Coastal Trading Post at Cook’s Corner and managed it until 2004. He left the business in 2004.
He once served as a deputy in the sheriff’s office in both Somerset County and Sagadahoc County. Additionally, he graduated from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy in 1980 with a diploma recognizing him as a Reserve Officer. Prior to Adam’s passing, his son Scott Frati, his brother Hugo Frati, his sister Louise Harris, and his son-in-law John H. Gillis all passed away.
Debora Gillis of Norway, Maine, and Pam Eggemeyer and her husband Denny of Arvada, Colorado; his brother Orlando Frati and his wife Charlene of Bangor; his sister Joanna Hitt of Brevard, North Carolina; a stepson, Bill Pidgeon of San Diego, California; three grandsons, Will Pidgeon, Matt Pidgeon, and Chad Pidgeon; and his loving wife of 48 years, Helen (Beanie) Frati of Brunswick
He had a total of 65 years of experience as a Registered Maine Guide, 73 years as a Mason in the state of Maine, 70 years as a Scottish Mason in the state of Maine, and 65 years as a Shriner in the state of Maine. Because he enjoyed the company of others and was good at getting along with them, locals began to refer to him as “The Mayor of Meadowbrook.” This was due to the fact that he frequently hosted parties, dinners, and other social events for his friends and neighbors. The fact that Adam was a devoted spouse and parent is without a doubt the most significant aspect of his character.
