Francis spent his youth working a sawmill with his father. After high school, in 1944, he entered the Navy and was discharged in 1946 as a Machinist's Mate Third Class. He then made his home in Salem with his wife of 54 years. Francis retired from G.E. with 10 years and Norfolk & Southern with over 30 years of service. On the side he helped out working on heating and air in homes and on vehicles. Francis could fix anything that was brought to him. He was a good friend and neighbor to all that knew him. He was also a life-long member of Salem Methodist Church on Rt. 42 in Craig County.

Many special thanks to the 11th floor at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, Medi Home Health & Hospice and each member of the staff. Also to each special person that has been with us; Jimmy, Amy, Robin, Stephanie and Megan, thank you.
In lieu of flowers, teach a young person to hunt, fish, love the land and be able to fix anything.
