Bill was born in Detroit, Michigan on December 16, 1948 to Robert and Marion Francis. Bill was quite the story teller and jokester. Bill was an avid sports fan and really enjoyed watching the U of M Football games where he would root for his beloved team. You could also find Bill enthusiastically spending hours upon hours in front of the television watching reruns of Hallmark Christmas movies all year round. Additionally, Bill was a connoisseur of the vocal style rock and roll characterized by the acappella singing of nonsense syllables in rhythmical support of the melody known as “doo-wop” and listened frequently to his beloved music. Bill also enjoyed scoping out new “greasy spoon diners” and enjoying a breakfast, lunch or dinner. Further, Bill loved classic cars and remembering the vehicles from years gone by. However, one of his most beloved times was when he would sit for hours in his garage drinking a cup of coffee and smoking a cigarette while he greeted his neighbors and engaged in endless hours of conversation. Bill married his high school sweetheart Margaret (Nee Campernel) Francis in 1972. Loving father of Amy (Pete) DiLella, Holly Francis and William Francis, Jr. Proud Grandfather of Allison Francis, Madeline and Peter DiLella, Adriana, Ava and Presley Francis.
