As a child, Franco was always free spirited and found ways to get into trouble while having a great time. He enjoyed a good party and was always on the dance floor. He was an avid grocery shopper, looking for great produce and great deals. He enjoyed traveling and experiencing what the world had to offer. All who knew Franco will remember him as fun, easygoing, hardworking, and a dedicated family man. All those that knew him will miss him.
