Francis's boy Kevin and I grew up together. He lived on one end of the street i lived on the other. Over the years Francis became almost like another dad to me. His house was like my home away from home. Kevins a real good friend of mine and has been for years. His father was one of the coolest dads on the block growing up! Always telling us stories of the crazy things he did when he was young. Francis taught all us youngins about hard work and to take pride it in! His love for Ford was pretty unmatched haha. Definitely will be missed.

Francis and I were both voted "Most Creative" for our senior class and posed in front of the mural that he painted and I had nothing to do with. We had a good laugh over that. A really nice guy who will be missed.

Franny has been a great friend all through school & we’ve always managed to stay in touch through the years. He was a very happy guy who loved life, he loved his family & friends. He worked hard every day. He was a great carpenter who did a lot of beautiful work here at my house. I will miss you dearly Franny. RIP MY FRIEND UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN ❤️❤️

Francis was a kind and caring soul. He would always help someone out in need. All the times he carted us around going out. Always had a quick smile and wit. His will always be remembered lovingly in my memories. Wish there were more people like him in this world. My love and prayers go out to his family and friends.
