Frederick “Fred” Mastroni left us to join the jam session in the sky on August 6, 2022 at 82 years of age,
Fred was born in Philadelphia Pa in 1939. As a young man, his biggest passion in life was music. An avid guitar player, he traveled the east coast playing with his bands, “The In-Sexx”, “The Down Children” and “The Monkey Men”. They frequently performed at popular clubs where he met legendary blues musician Roy Buchanan and recorded multiple albums with him. Not long after, he met his lifelong partner, love of his life Rita (Petrushansky) Mastroni, and married her. His family then became his new passion, but he never gave up his love of music and his passion for playing guitar. He was a funny, kind, and gentle soul who had a way with words and could make anyone smile in his presence and feel welcome. He was a force of love, light, and compassion to everyone he touched in his life.
He is predeceased by his father Frederick Mastroni Sr and his mother, Helen Sheridan. He is survived by his wife of 52 years Rita (Petrushansky) Mastroni and his three children Cheryl Mastroni Dilks, Robin Mastroni Rose, and Nadine Mastroni Belisle. His grandchildren whom he adored with all of his heart, Este Dilks, Lauren Dilks, Skylar Belisle, and Carma Belisle also survive him. He is survived by his two son in laws that he loved dearly James Belisle and John Rose. He is also survived by his sister, Lori Mastroni Kauffmann.
