Francis then worked for over 26 years as a letter carrier in Rochester for the U.S. Postal service retiring in 1988. He loved the patrons on his mail route and always served them with a friendly smile.

He worked for three years in the Pro Shop of the Rochester Country Club.

He loved sports, especially bowling and golf. He was a member of the men's bowling league at the Bowlaway Lanes in Rochester and the men's league at the Rochester CC.
