Francis (Frankie) John Walsh age 24 left footprints on our hearts on May 15, 2013 in Washington, Utah. He was born in Phoenix, Arizona on February 10, 1989.

Francis resided in Phoenix, Ariz., Ypsilanti, Michigan and for the most part in St. George, Utah, where he attended Dixie High School and went to Dixie State College. Francis was interested in going into Psychology and working with children.

Francis was loved by many and wore his heart on his sleeve. His greatest love is his daughter Elycia and his fiancée Anne Cothern.  Francis wanted to be the best father for his daughter. He laughed, cried and loved like none other. When Francis loved, he loved deeply and didn’t have a problem showing his love to those who he cherished the most. You could see this love demonstrated with his nieces and nephews, brothers, sisters, friends and other family members.

Francis please know your nieces and nephews will grow up knowing all about the amazing uncle they had one who loved them without even really knowing them. Francis’s friends will feel the void that Francis has left and will forever hold onto the memories that was formed over his 24 short years. We will always think about and love Francis, don’t be afraid to mention his name and keep him alive in your heart. RIP Francis and know that you were loved by many and you will forever be missed.

You were loved by someone,

Touched by someone,

Held by someone,

Meant something to someone,

Loved somebody,

Touched somebody’s heart along the way.

You can look back and say

You were loved.
