Obituary of Francis David
Francis Femi David Jr., 38 a resident of Gillis Rd in Greenwich went to be with his lord and savior Jesus Christ, Thursday, July 18, 2019 at St. Peter’s Hospital after a brief illness.
He was born March 20, 1981 in Charleston, WV, to Carla Bradford Hughes and the late Francis Femi David Sr.
Francis had a bubbly personality, infectious smile and was as empathetic as they come. As a child he loved playing with his blocks, attending the YMCA and playing sports. On the playground Francis would always find the child who didn’t have anyone to play with and play with them. He was loved by his mother dearly and will truly be missed.
Francis was very friendly and made sure to communicate his wants and needs proudly. His favorite food was pizza, he loved to sing and dance especially to the Backstreet Boys and his favorite saying to his mother was that “he felt he was stuck in the 80’s”. Francis enjoyed writing on his chalkboard in his room and was a proud member of the self-advocacy program.
His faith in Jesus Christ was present at an early age being baptized at age 9 at the Metropolitan Baptist Church. He enjoyed reading the word of God in his Bible.
His sense of humor shined bright each and everyday and his caregivers and family will miss his daily phone calls.
He is survived by his mother Carla Hughes of Albany; sister Rosa (Elias) Rosario; aunt Daisy Clark; uncle Harold Bradford; nephew Robert; several cousins; his dear friend Mike H and his residential and program team who loved him.
Graveside services for Francis will be held at 10am Friday, July 26, 2019 in the Greenwich Cemetery, County Rd 52, Greenwich, NY, 12834 with Celebrant Jason M. Easton officiating.
In lieu of flowers Francis requested purple and black balloons to be sent to his home at 125 Gillis Rd, Greenwich, NY, 12834.
