Longtime Malden resident Francis Spignese recently turned 80 years young! Mayor Gary Christenson recently stopped by the home that he shares with his lovely wife of 50 years, Karen, and presented him with a citation in recognition of his milestone birthday. Francis is proud of his four children and absolutely loves being a “Pampa” to his four grandchildren. A military veteran, Francis has gotten much satisfaction from volunteering for Disabled Veterans and many other organizations. When Mayor Christenson asked Francis his secret for such a long and healthy life, he said that “at least 25 pushups a day” is what keeps him young.
