IN MEMORIUM: Irondequoit Rotarian, Chris Franco, and his beloved wife of 66 years, Evie, both passed away recently. As they had been as teenagers, they passed together, surrounded by family.
Chris was of a generation of Rotarians who will be sorely missed; craftsmen who not only served with their minds and their contributions but who had the skills to actually roll-up-their-sleeves and build what is needed. For over 30 years, Chris was deeply involved in both Irondequoit Rotary and Camp Haccamo, where he personally contributed to countless construction projects. He was a friend and mentor to generations of Rotarians, teaching them how to lead and serve with strength, love, and a smile.
