Adan Franco It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father Adan Franco on May 09, 2022. Fondly known as Chito or Pops to his many friends and family. He was 79 years old and was just shy of celebrating his 80th birthday. He is very much loved and will be greatly missed. Our loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, cousin, uncle, and dear friend was met in heaven by his late wife Mary Franco, his mother Amalia, father Adan Franco along with so many others he loved throughout his years. He is survived by his two sons Patrick Franco (Susie), David Franco, 3 grandkids (Anthony, Patrick Jr., Josh), 4 great-grandkids (Cassi, Anni, Jaiden, Arlene), his 5 sisters (Vilma Marquez, Gloria Valdez, Bertha Villela, Susie Archibeque, Pricilla Caldera, and his step son Richard Frietze.

In love and strong in their faith they began to navigate through life together and started their own family. Adan worked for 17 years at Border Steel, 16 years at W. Silver, and 10 years at B&M Machinery. He was 70 years old when he retired. Everyone he met he impacted in so many ways.
