So sad to hear, I use to go down and he would sharpen my mower blades, he was always in such pain but insisted I keep coming back because it gave him something to do so I would always try to go down and visit with him and his wife. He use to work with my dad years ago.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Francis. We were in school together and he always had us laughing about something. He was a great classmate and friend . May he Rest In Peace.

Mike, Cindy, Steven, and the whole Dorion family our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Larry living next door remembering following Francis around as a little kid-Francis was like a big brother. And Cindy being my sister I got to know the family and how good the family was. May the Lord comfort you with his love, reassurance, guidance, and hope as you all deal with Francis’s passing especially during this difficult time. Hold the memories close and know they are blessings. Sending our love❤️
