Charlie Francis

December 20, 1928 - November 5, 2016

Tribute

It is with heavy hearts and loving memories that we say “see you later” (emma-wegah) to Charlie “Papa” Francis. Charlie died peacefully from natural causes surrounded by his family and close friends at Powell River General Hospital on November 5, 2016, at the age of 87 years. Charlie was born at Church House, Homalco First Nation on December 20, 1928, to parents William and Mary Francis. He was the oldest of four siblings: Mary (aka Mable), Madeline (predeceased) and Herman. Charlie was predeceased by his wife of 66 years Elsie Francis in 2013 and his son Brian in 1964. Charlie is survived by four generations of children Steve (Helen), Alvin (Rose), Connie (Don), Doreen (Jimmy) and Gloria; grandchildren Carey, Guy, Jason, Leslie, Gina, Brandy, Lori, Allison, Trisha and Craig; great-grandchildren Monica, Tyrell, Rianna, Adam, Danielle, Megan, Elizabeth, Kyle, Alyssa, Cedar, Hunter, Chael, Connor, Wiley, Tegan, Tia, Stacee, Ethan, Rhys, Destiny, Justice, Kevin, Justin and Alexis; and his great-great grandchildren Kayda, Lennox and Paxton. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and extended family. We would like to thank all the medical professionals for their support and empathy through this journey, including Dr. Lynskey, Sara Mitchell-Banks, Tla’amin Health nurse practitioner, all the MSP nurses and staff on the fourth floor at the hospital, and Richard Louie, Tla’amin Health. We would like to respectfully thank Bill Barnes and Klahoose First Nation and Tla’amin community members for the food platters at our family’s time of need. We also thank Mavis Coupal and Homalco First Nation for their love and support. A wake will be held at Tla’amin Salish Centre at 4 pm on November 13, and a funeral service will be held at Church of the Assumption at 10 am on November 14

Emote.
