Paul Francis III

September 12, 2021



Paul B Francis “PIL”.  Paul loved life and had a big personality.  His many friends, family and loved ones all knew he loved them because he never ended a conversation without saying so.  Paul always wore his signature color – ORANGE, it matched his infectious personality.  He was fun loving, funny, generous, and truly had a heart of gold.  Paul was uncommonly kind and compassionate and spent a lot of his time helping and caring for family and friends in need…. 4 legged friends too.  He will be missed by so many.  He leaves this world just like he lived it – his generosity as a tissue and organ donor will benefit and improve the lives of as many as 75 people.  Paul was an amazing father, and leaves behind his ‘pride and joy’, his daughter Tabitha Knight.  Paul never missed a chance to tell the world how proud he was of his amazing ‘kid’.  He is also survived by his loving girlfriend Missy Stephens, his ‘dawg’ Storm Princess, beloved family Doris Peace and Hannah Brandenburg, siblings Ted Francis and David and Lori Savage, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and other family and friends. He will always remain in our hearts!

Paul was preceeded in death by his parents Joe and June Francis, former wife Cheryl Francis, brother Mike Francis, sisters Taffy Milburn and Terri Prather.


He Passed away suddenly on September 12, 2021 at the age of 56.  A Celebration of Paul’s Life is being planned and will occur in the upcoming weeks.
