Frank Dalti, 90, of North Smithfield, had a peaceful death surrounded by his family on December 1, 2022, at home. He was the husband of the late Carol (Goudreau) Dalti. Born in Woonsocket, he was the son of the late Guiseppe and Emelia (Lenzi) Dalti.
Frank was a US Army Veteran of the Korean War and was the owner of the former Park Square Medical for forty-five years. He was a member of the American Legion Post 111 Woodstock, CT and VFW Post 1523 of Putnam, Ct. Something few might be aware of but Frank was immensely proud of was he earned his private pilot's license at an early age. Frank’s hobbies consisted of his love of food and spirits, hunting, dogs, nature, and convertibles.
He is survived by four children, Cheryl Pierce and her husband, Steve of Saratoga Springs, UT, Timothy Dalti of Smithfield, Christopher Dalti and his wife, Deb of North Smithfield, and Caroline Marshall and her husband, Scott of North Smithfield; a sister, Angelina Dagesse of Woonsocket; five grandchildren, Robbie, Patrick, Jessica, Erica, and Samuel; and seven great-grandchildren, Ethan, Willow, Sofia, Max, Charlotte, JJ, and Noah. He was the brother of the late Francesco, Joseph, James and Ronald Dalti, Antoinette Hetu, Mary Sutcliffe, and Grace Cullerton.
Frank was one of the most kind-hearted, compassionate, and gentle souls anyone could ever meet, putting family, friends, and strangers first. Everyone who knew him loved him. He never met a person or a cone of ice cream he did not like.
His funeral will be held Friday, December 9, 2022, beginning with visitation at 10am at the Holt Funeral Home, 510 South Main St., Woonsocket, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 12:30 PM at Holy Trinity Parish, 1409 Park Ave., Woonsocket.

Frank and his family are thankful for all the services Hope Hospice provided him.
