Daniel St. Francis

ST. ALBANS: Daniel St. Francis, age 69, passed away peacefully on August 05, 2021. He was born in Swanton, October 3, 1951 to Hubert and Hilda (Minkler) St. Francis.  Daniel married Cindy Gagner on June 02, 1979. 

Danny worked for many years as a taxi driver for Fabe’s Taxi, in numerous local stores to include his own Dan and Fran’s Variety.  He then worked as a manager of the janitorial services at IBM and Champlain College.  He continued as the head of the janitorial services at the Welden Theater.  Danny finally retired operating online stores through eBay and others. He enjoyed his flower gardens, baking, fishing, going to flea markets, making and fixing  jewelry, and collecting and selling antiques.  He was known for not having a farm stand that he wouldn’t pass by.  He was very proud to raise money for many charities in our community.  Danny will be best remembered by his many friends in our community, for his love of having a good laugh and putting smiles on people’s faces.
