Daniel Forlasto Obituary

Daniel A. Forlasto, 87, of North Providence, formerly of Cranston, passed away Monday January 15, 2024 at home surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband for over 65 years to the late Mavis (Williams) Forlasto, who passed away only 7 short months ago on June 23, 2023.

Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Antonio and Anna (Calvino) Forlasto.

He leaves his children, Daniel B. Forlasto of Exeter, Steven P. Forlasto and his companion Kelley Snead of Warwick, Michael A. Forlasto and his wife Catherine of Gilbert, Arizona and Lynne Forlasto of Cranston; 4 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. He was the brother of Nancy Giuliano, the late Vincent Forlasto, and the late Carol Burke.

Daniel married the love of his life at the age of 20. Shortly after they were married, he and his young wife began their journey when he was stationed in Anchorage, Alaska where Daniel served in the United States Army. After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting at Bryant College in 1957, Daniel started his career as an accounting clerk at Providence Mutual Fire Insurance Company. He later became Treasurer and retired 35 years later as Senior Vice President. Upon retiring, he decided to join Hingham Mutual Fire Insurance Company where he enjoyed working for several more years.

Besides his wife and family, Daniel’s passions included coaching baseball for Cranston American Little League as well as CLCF for many years. He also enjoyed watching his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren compete at their many sporting events.

He especially loved the times he was able to drive across the country with his young family, as well as the many trips he and Mavis made alone together. A great home cooked meal and dining in the finest restaurants were also among his favorite things, accompanied by a Manhattan, light on the sweet vermouth of course!

Daniel was a very dignified, loyal, faithful, generous and patriotic man. His entire life revolved around his wife and family. He worked very hard for all his life to provide, protect, and care for them.

He demonstrated his devotion and dedication when Mavis began her battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He visited every day for many years and provided her with the best care possible until she passed. He continued to visit her daily at St. Ann’s cemetery where he will join her in eternal rest.

Following Mr. Forlasto’s expressed wishes, his funeral and burial was private.
