Obituary for Gerald Dean Francis

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.

On behalf of the Staff of the NC Office of Administrative Hearings in Raleigh, NC, I wish to offer sincere condolences to the Francis Family at the passing of your loved one. Mr. Roger, as we called him, helped keep our building systems operating properly for many years. He was a kind, gentle man with a Godly spirit. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and speaking with him whenever he was in our building. I was so sorry to learn of Mr. Roger's passing and will miss him coming to the office to fix whatever is broken. To the Family, please know that God reaches down and picks the most beautiful flowers from His garden. He definitely picked a beauty when He chose Mr. Roger. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
Sincerely,
Linda T. Worth, Deputy Director, NC OAH, Raleigh, NC
