Don Francis

1937 - 2014

Carol and Don Francis

Our good friend Don Francis passed away peacefully Saturday September 5 at Riverside Hospital. Carol, friends and family were by his side.

Don was a huge supporter of the jazz community in Columbus and will be dearly missed. Carol has asked that instead of flowers contributions can be made to the Mark Flugge Memorial Fund c/o Lisa Jelle, Capital University Conservatory of Music, 1 College and Main St. Columbus, OH 43209, or to a charity of your choice.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.


Rest in peace, Don. Keep on swingin' my friend.
