Francis Fay

Francis Anderson Fay, born 21 May 1919 – died 19 Dec. 2013, age 94.

Francis died peacefully at his home on Lopez Island. Francis suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease in recent years and was not able to keep up his social contacts but maintained his physical health and inimitable sense of humor. He kept his family laughing until the end. He was fortunate to be able to be cared for at home by his wife Nancy, with help from his daughters Elf and Deb and a wonderful team of local caregivers.

Frances is survived by Nancy, his wife of 62 years, his three children, Jonathan, Deb and Elf and his six grandchildren, Rush, Anne, Zoe, Robin, Molly and Jasper. He loved them all. His family is grateful for his long and eventful life and the many dear friends who enjoyed his companionship over the years.
