You were a awesome friend and always willing to help me and teach me new things at GE
Deepest condolences to your family
You will be missed greatly
Fran, I just wanted to thank you again for all your kind wisdom and frank discussions over the years.
It’s hard to believe we worked together for over a quarter of a century, with some of that work bringing us on journeys to other countries.
I truly appreciate all that you taught me, not only in manufacturing / machining, but in life. You were a great mentor to everyone.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
Cory and Josie Fitzpatrick
May your happiest memories help ease you through this very sad time.
Fran will most definitely be missed by all who had the privileged to know him.
