He was born in Jessup, PA on December 18, 1928, a son of the late Amerigo and Michelina (Silvestri) Armezzani. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Frances (Lupini) Armezzani, the light of his life, and brother, Louis Armezzani. Francis was a graduate of Jessup High School and a Member of Queen of Angels Parish and St Mary's Assumption Church. He worked his entire life, starting at an early age in the coal mines in Scranton, and then Remington Arms in Bridgeport, Connecticut and Chrysler Corporation in Eynon, PA.

His home was the family hub and his happiest moments were when he was with his wife, children, grandchildren and family. He was a skilled fisherman and consummate craftsman. He loved to travel with his wife, family and friends, especially lifelong friends, Mickey and Ada Mazza.
