FRANCIS, Bob....

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert "Bob" Francis, of London, on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at the age of 80 years, at home with his family by his side. Beloved husband of Linda for 56 years. Loving father of Tracy (Rob) Park and Kimberly (Greg) Francis. Proud Papa of Emily (Adam) Johnson, Robert, Finn and Reese. Dear brother of Barry (Audrey), Bonnie (Roc) and Bruce (Irene). Greatly missed by his sisters-in-law Gloria (Dave) Jackson and Sandy Grover. Predeceased by his parents Bob (2014) and June (2013). Remembered by his nieces and nephews, and his many cherished friends and neighbours.

Bob was a one of a kind man who made an impression on everyone he met and who made you feel special in his presence. He was most proud when spending time with his grandchildren, at the beach, on the snow hills or in the pool, he was always there. He loved working as an Insurance Adjuster across Canada and the United States for 50+ years, his time at the YMCA, and spending time with many lifelong friends. The family wishes to thank his doctors and especially Leslie Russell from the Bryon Family Medical Centre for all of her help and support.
