    We were so very sad to hear of Fran’s passing. He was a wonderful man. He would frequently pull up in front of the house when he was not well enough to get out of his car and we would run out and talk him. It was usually to talk about the New Yankees and how they were doing. He was passionate about his team. He would always want to me to bring my German Shepherd dog out so that he could see him. He was a kind, caring man and his presence will be missed. May he rest in peace.
