    Fran an ice hockey and soccer guru. Friendly, kind, giving person. He was a Rockabilly fan and my wife and I shared several meetings with him at the Blue Comet. Some beers, laughs and a good time along with his good friend Drew. There is a room for Fran in heaven! Peace, John

    A man who always, in my mind, had his heart in the right place. I was fortunate to have spent time with him and to know him.
