Gerald Dean Francis, "Roger" 73 of Franklinton, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, February 9, 2020. He was born in Ashe county to the late Millburn and Vennie Francis. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by two siblings, Dickie and Patsy Francis.
Gerald was a cherished husband, father, brother, uncle and grandfather. He was a lifetime resident of Franklinton, where he helped raise his children and grandchildren. A master carpenter, he loved old cars and his four little doggie. But, his greatest passion was telling everyone about the Jesus he loved and served.
The family will receive friends Wednesday night from 6 – 7:30 pm at Lancaster Funeral and Cremation Services, 804 N. Bickett Blvd., Louisburg. Funeral services will held Thursday at 11:00 am at Lancaster Funeral and Cremation Services Chapel with Reverend Ricky Easter officiating.
Surviving his wife, Rebecca Francis of 54 years; daughter Tammy and son in law Rodney, son Johnny and wife Hope Francis, son Derek Francis; daughter Tonya and son in law Alan Robinson, 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren; brothers Mike and wife Martha, Cecil and wife Betty, David and wife Lisa; sister Judy Houck and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Henderson NC. We aren't saying goodbye we're saying see ya later as that was his favorite saying.
