Francis Joseph Lobo
December 3, 1951 – February 10, 2020
Francis Joseph Lobo, age 68, passed away peacefully, after a lengthy battle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, on the morning of February 10th, 2020. He took his last breath surrounded by loved ones.
Francis received his degree in Industrial Training from St. Joseph’s Industrial Training Institute in Mumbai, India. Francis immigrated to the United States in 1987.

During this time, he was also a dedicated member to the church choir at Holy Family Catholic Church in Missouri City, and sang for over 20 years. His love for music was infectious, and he enjoyed sharing it with his dear ones. He was known for his ability to form bonds with anyone he met, and would always remember a connection made, no matter the length of time that had passed.
Francis was preceded in death by his sister, Sandra Lobo; mother, Bernadine Lobo; and father, Louis Lobo. He is survived by his wife, Collette Lobo; daughter, Lorraine Lobo; son, Kevin Lobo; sister, Shirley Lobo; sister, Sheila Dubey; sister, Edwina Pallan; brother, Nicholas (Noel) Lobo, brother, Anthony (Tony) Lobo; as well as many nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude for the excellent care Francis received from all of his physicians, especially Dr. Suneesh Nair, pulmonologist.

Uncle Francis (or uncle Francie as i have known him my whole life) was one of my dads close cousins. I have very few memories of uncle Francie from my own childhood, but one thing i do remember is that he was excellent at carpentry at least during his time back in Mumbai. I know this cos he built n installed the front door of my house back in Mumbai, complete with the locks n fixtures which stood strong for 30 + years :) . I got to meet him a few times since i moved to the US back in 2006 and remember my first Christmas dinner in the US that i spent at his house while i was visiting aunty Sheila in Houston. His collection of old Hindi songs and also country music just blew my mind.
We will all miss him. On behalf of the Dsouzas in Mumbai and California, my condolences to aunty Collette, my cousins Lorraine and Kevin and to all of the Lobo family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
