Condolences

Condolence From: Henry and Barb Buitenbos
Condolence: We have known Francis all our lives. When we were first married we shopped in Graf's store because he would give us credit. It was could doing business with him and Lois. Many years later we would visit with him in Shorty's if we had supper there. To his family and friends our deepest sympathy. We will miss his living history of WWII.

Condolence From: Denise E DePaolo
Condolence: I met Francis at Shorty's in Platte - maybe in 2012. I was working for KSFY at the time, and a coworker wanted to stop in as part of a story. Francis was having dinner there, and just started talking to me. We visited for a good half hour. The next time I was in the area, we had dinner at Shorty's, and after that, I'd drop him some cookies every once in a while.
He told so many amazing stories about his life, including his work, his service during WWII, his correspondence with his friend in St. Louis, and his music. He spoke so lovingly about his wife. He clearly loved and missed her very much. He also thought that Platte was the best place in the world.
We fell out of touch in recent years, and although my acquaintance with him was brief in the context of his long life, he made an impact. He taught me that you're never too old to make new friends, and sometimes talking to strangers is a good thing.
Rest in peace, Francis. I'll always remember you.

Condolence: I first met Francis 55 years ago in Platte @ his store when I & 3 friends were travelling to California to visit family in Carlsbad. We stayed @ his home that night before travelling west. Last time I saw & visited Francis was in 2010, he was an amazing man. Francis & my Dad(Lawrence) were double 1st cousins. May God bless your soul, now you are set free from here. Until we meet again. Your presence on this earth will be missed by many family & friends.
