Robert M. Frattarola, devoted husband, father, son, brother and friend, passed away suddenly on July 31, 2023, at the age of 44. Robert was born on August 7, 1978 to Robert & Katherine (nee Marshall) Frattarola. After graduating from Yorktown High School in 1997 as an All-American Lacrosse player, Robert attended The Johns Hopkins University where he played Division I Lacrosse for the Blue Jays. While at Johns Hopkins, he met the love of his life and best friend, Katherine (nee Tucker). They were married in September of 2006. They welcomed their first son, James, in 2012; their second son, William, in 2017; and their daughter, Emery, arrived shortly after in 2019.
Robert was a loving father, actively involved in coaching on the field and cheering from the sidelines in lacrosse, soccer and gymnastics; enjoying the quiet nights cuddling with his children in bed and sharing his passion for skiing, skeet shooting and fishing.
Robert was a fierce competitor, generous friend and successful professional. For all of his accomplishments and talents, Robert’s greatest gifts were his willingness to hold himself accountable to a higher sense of purpose and his ability to make people feel loved. He will most notably be remembered for his strong character, unimpeachable integrity, kind nature, infectious laugh and comforting smile.
Robert, at his core, was devoted to his family. He was their heart and anchor. His siblings always looked to him for strength as their true north, and he exemplified who they all strived to be. He was always willing to lend a loving hand, ready ear and welcoming home and was selfless in helping all those who needed it, particularly young lacrosse players who were looking to improve their game. It is widely believed that he was the funniest of all his friends.
In addition to his wife, children and parents, he leaves behind siblings, Michael, Katie, James (Dana), and Amy (Camilla), his mother-in-law, Patricia Naclerio, along with many cousins, beloved nieces, nephews and friends. In lieu of flowers, a Ugift 529 foundation has been set up in Robert’s honor. Donations may be made by visiting https://www.ugift529.com/ and entering code 407-L9H.
