He was in his mid fifties. Francis led the Chief Minister’s media office as Press Secretary and Media Director. He joined Peter Caruana’s office in September 1996 having previously served as the Chronicle’s first Gibraltarian Editor from 1984, and, previously, as the chief reporter after working as a journalist in UK and locally.>“Commenting on the news Dominique Searle, Editor, said ‘The news has come as a great shock to all at the Chronicle, newspaper and printing works, who worked with him for many years. He was totally dedicated to his journalistic work and to playing a role in taking the project of Gibraltar forward. Our condolences go out to his family, wife Pamela and his two daughters.’

The funeral will take place on Friday 14th August at The Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned at  2.00pm.”
