Brother Fran gave me my first part in a play-- playing Oliver in the Musical " Oliver" at St. Joseph's in Kings Park. That was about 48 years ago !!! He was an amazing man-- We also did "Little Mary Sunshine" together -- as well as many years in the Folk Group. He was very inspirational to me as a teenager. He's kind demeanor, his love of music and his devotion to his vocation were amazing. He was special to me and to so many people. I hope he led a very happy life. Thank you Brother Fran !!!!

Brother Fran was always so kind to me, both as a child playing flute at mass at Sts. Philip & James, and also later as I played flute throughout high school at St. Anthony's. He was always patient, friendly, and thoughtful. I loved how he loved music, and I can't remember a single instance of Brother Fran ever seeming anything less than happy in interactions with students. He will be missed, and I'm thankful to have known him.

So sad to hear of the passing of Brother Franciscus. He was my teacher at ST. Anthony's High School from 1968-1972. We did some great musical's with Brother Fran at the helm.Such a Happy Time! He enhanced my love of music and the arts! Rest in Peace Brother Fran. Bob Forker

I am very saddened by the death of Br. Fran. He was very good to me and had a very kind heart and spirit. I know his faith was strong and will carry him through to this beautiful place with God.

I have so many fond memories in the choir loft, on the phone, at the local pubs, singing, talking, laughing, and learning. He was truly one of my favorite people.

I pray God welcomes him home with open arms. Heaven's music just gained another angel.

God bless you Br. Fran. Thank you for your faith and friendship. Earth lost a dear friend but heaven has gained a wonderful angel.
