Francesco was a very caring man who loved his family, his passion was his gardening, and cooking; his food was always sought after, and he was always happy to share his passion. He also enjoyed his Sunday flea markets, where he would spend many an hour. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A special thank you to the staff at Woodend Park, Henley House.
