October 17, 1958 – September 9, 2019
Jeffrey Robert Francis, of Burien, Washington passed away on Monday September 9, 2019. Jeff was born October 17, 1958.
After an 8 year extension in this world, the final aorta repair was more than his physical body could manage and he succumbed in surgery. He was 60 years old.
He is the eldest son of John Anthony Francis and Linda Roberts Francis, of Los Angeles. He is preceded in death by his daughter, Cecelia Elizabeth Francis, and father, Tony. He is survived by his mother, Linda; siblings Michael, Matthew, and Cathy; nephews and nieces; his wife of 13 years, Dana Francis, and their children, Aidan Keller, Christian Noel, Xavier Dominique. He leaves a plethora of connections from around the world.
His smile, warmth and laughter will be greatly missed. His contribution to University of Washington Study of Aortic Dissection and Vascular Disease is greatly appreciated as well as the donation of cornea to 2 recipients, who gained vision from his gift.

Jeff was a great co-worker, always with a positive attitude and a joke to lighten the mood, even during the most trying incidents. He was a pleasure to spend time with, despite being just a voice coming through the phone from the other side of the country, and we are missing him dearly. Condolences to his friends and family as we all learn to navigate this world without him.

I was so glad to reconnect with Jeff decades after parting ways after high school. We had both grown so much since then. In high school our friendship was more about not being bored than about deep interpersonal relationships. But as adults, I've learned what a kind, empathetic, honest and just person Jeff is. And what a wicked sense of humor he has. He and Dana were 100% made for each other, and I'm so happy there were able to enjoy those 8 extra years (after Jeff's first aorta incident) together. My heart aches for Dana and Aiden. Love to you both.
