  • Notes 
    • From his obituary in the Palm Beach Post:

      Francis was born in 1933 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He attended the French School of Buenos Aires, received his bachelor's degree from the University of Buenos Aires, and both a Masters and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Agricultural Economics. He spent most of his professional life working for the World Bank as an economist. His last post was as Chief of Mission of the Bank in Dhaka, Bangladesh with the rank of Ambassador. After retirement, he lived fifteen years in Savannah, Georgia where he became the diocesan representative to the Episcopal Relief and Development Agency. He also played USTA tennis at the local, state, regional and national level. On the tennis court, he was known as both a keen competitor and true gentleman. After moving to Florida he competed briefly until illness prevented his playing. He also tutored students in French and Spanish at "Paul's Place," an after-school program for at-risk students.
