Life Legacy:
Jeff passed away on Monday, September 2, 2013 in Renton Washington. He was born on October 18, 1949 in Harford, CT to Leo and Ellen Francis. Jeff had the love for music all his life starting out at a young age taking accordion lessons, playing the saxophone in Jr. and High School and later playing the keyboard and guitar in a band.

In 2003 he had major health problems but it didn’t get him down, maybe a little disheartening now and then but never down. He had a big heart, a great outlook on life and touched many of hearts along his path. He’s preceded in death by both his parents Leo and Ellen. Jeff is survived by his sons William Francis (Lindsay), Justin Mills (Nicole), 2 grandchildren and his sister Jill Wells (Tim). Memorial Services will be held on October 5, 2013 at 5:oo pm at the Cornerstone Church, 25030 Military Road South, Kent, Washington

Messages of Condolence:

"My prayers are with your family, Jeff, for God's Spirit to comfort and strengthen them. I know you are with the Lord and enjoying the new body he's given you! God bless!"

"I Knew Jeff since graded school (5th grade) and helped with his paper route most days. He was always an inspiration to me with his wonderful outlook on life and his love for music which he broaden my interests into genre's like rock, jazz and many others. He was a great friend even when work parted our ways for many years. I was blessed to get closer to him in his remaining years by sharing breakfast meetings and car shows with him and my brother John. I will miss him dearly the rest of my life and will never forget his bright outlook even on the darkest days he faced. My heart and soul go out to his sister Jill and his family for the loss of such a great soul. May God bless and ease the pain of his passing for all his beloved survivors."
- Bob St George
