Uncle Francis, as he was affectionately known, died suddenly on the evening of 25th May as he helped his niece Marilyn, in the garden of her home. He was active in the parish of St Anne’s since the 1950s when he was received into the Church there. Over the years he has helped in various capacities– church-warden, counting collections, tending the grounds and garden at Church. He was also involved over the years with Birmingham Handicap Fellowship in providing holidays for young people.
