Francis was a kind, patient man whose faith meant a great deal to him.

Until recently, Francis lived independently in Toronto with the help of his wonderful neighbour, Donna and his nieces, Alane and Karen, who provided extra love, care and support over the last several years. Rest easy Francis, you will be missed.
