Francis J. “Sonny” Martorana

Francis J. “Sonny” Martorana of Brockton, formerly a longtime resident of Quincy, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 20, 2023.  He was 80.

Sonny was born in Boston to the late Theresa (Valenzola) and Salvatore Martorana and raised in Quincy.  When he was 19, he enlisted in the US Navy and served 4 years of active duty before entering the reserves.

In his spare time, Sonny was very active.  He enjoyed traveling with his wife Marie to New Hampshire and Las Vegas.  He was an outdoorsman and artist, spending plenty of time fishing and drawing.  He would often listen to jazz music and loved dancing with his wife.  He also enjoyed playing the lottery and scratch-off  tickets and won often. 

Sonny was a devoted husband and caring stepfather, grandfather and great-grandfather.  He had a great sense of humor. His famous “fist bumps” and broad smile will be missed by all who knew him.
