Colin Vincent Francett, born on June 10,1962, passed away at his home early on October 6 2022, surrounded by his loving family and cats.
Colin was the active outdoors man, hunter, fisher, camper etc. His go to place was always Buck mountain. He worked as a chef at many restaurants throughout his younger years. He then worked at Pekhams industry for 20 years and was a landscaper.
He enjoyed the outdoors, being it was his passion and his happy place. Colin was also a dirt bike enthusiast. He rode and raced any chance he could get. Not only was he a great man but also a great father, husband, son, and most importantly the best papa to his grand babies.
Predeceased by his parents John and Betty Francett as well as his brother John Francett, Colin leaves behind his wife of 39 years Cindy: his sons, Gregory and Jeremy, his daughter Rebecca; as well as his brothers Michael, Rodney, and Brian Francett; his two beautiful grandkids, Rylee and Robert "bubby".
Colin was well known and was a great man to be around and always had some wise comment to give back! He fought a long hard battle for many many years and is now at eternal peace.
Any donations can be made directly to the family for final expenses and whatever else they may need at this time.
There will be no formal services. A hike to buck mountain where his ashes will be spread and possibly a celebration of life afterwards at his home are being discussed. Buck mountain meant more to him then most would ever know. Colin loved to watch blacklist with his wife at night and loved going to unindilla for the races. His memory will forever live on through the forest on buck..
Donations may be sent to 1771 Hinds Road Fort Edward NY 12828 or private message Cindy for alternative options.
Rest easy pops.
