We are very saddened to learn of Francis’ death. An original Round Lake Jet-setter, legend has it that he slalomed on a paddle. An educator and Dr. Seuss aficionado, he always knew how big the Grinch’s heart grew. Hopefully similar fond memories of many shared family occasions in Montreal, Toronto and K.L. will bring a smile and happy thoughts to everyone who knew him.
