May 25, 1948 - January 12, 2019
Francis passed away peacefully on January 12 surrounded by his family. For the past two years Francis had battled courageously with a myriad of health problems, never complaining but quietly battling on. Pre-deceased by his father Louis, Francis leaves behind his mother Evelyn, sisters Valerie (Rick) and Deloures (David) and brother, Kerry (Elvira). Francis was a favorite uncle and will be missed by his nephews, Richard, Eric, Matthew, Ryan, Gavin and Gareth and all his great nephews and nieces. Francis worked as a receiver at The London Health Science Centre for many years. A special thank you to Dr. Teefy and the dedicated staff of the Cardiac Unit at University Hospital, and all the in-home service providers who helped Francis in his final days.
