After thirty three years he moved to Pittsburgh, PA to stay close to his siblings, nephews and nieces. Francisco was a hard working man. A fast learner, he gained work experience in different fields and businesses like from lunch meat manufacturer to auto parts operator, from quality controller to becoming a landscaper. Before retirement, for over twenty years, he was devoted to landscaping. Always joyful and mentoring newcomers at work. His free time was spent mostly in his garden, or in his workshop where he loved to make his own Italian meats, preseve produce and ferment wine.
Francisco will be missed dearly by his relatives and friends.
