Francis honorably served his country in the United States Navy. He served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, prior to his retirement from the military. He was also a proud member of the NRA. He was a lovable grump and his catchphrase, “I’m miserable” always meant that he was having a great day and that he was happy to see you. He will be greatly missed.
