I regret to Inform you of the Passing of Dr. Frank "Doc" Barranco. Many BRATS knew Frank from the Baltimore County Fire Department, Navy-Marine Corps MARS, and Amateur Radio public service.
Doc Barranco was also a long time member of the Baltimore Amateur Radio Club. Many remember him sitting behind the table at the MARS booth at the hamfest.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, March 25 and Thursday, March 26 from 2 until 4 and 6 until 8 at the Ruck Towson Funeral Home, 1050 York Road. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 10 AM on Friday, March 27 at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, 200 Ware Av, Towson, MD followed by interment at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his memory to Stella Maris, 4500 Dulaney Valley Rd, Timouium 21093 or to the Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company, 1609 Bellona Av, Lutherville, MD 21093.
