Robert Bradford Francis

Our dear brother Brad Francis passed away on May 27, 2022.

Brad was a pledge in Fall of 1992 and was initiated along with brothers Jeff Jones, Mike Ooi, Bret Starr, and Joel Stone.

As an active, if my memory serves, Brad was among the greatest House Managers the chapter has ever known.

I encourage you to read Brad’s obituary here, it nicely captures the range of talents and interests Brad was famous for and notes the equally wide range of people that have known and loved Brad and who are mourning his loss.

All are invited to Brad’s family for a celebration of his extraordinary life on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at 10:30 am at Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery at 330 Berry Lane, Georgetown,Texas 78626, in the Forest Garden area.

A Celebration of Life with lunch and refreshments will immediately follow nearby at the Kappa Sigma House at Southwestern University, 1003 McKenzie Drive, Georgetown 78626.

  1. The funeral and party for Brad were above and beyond what he would have ever expected. Thank you SO MUCH for honoring him in such a stupendous way. He fell ill in September 2016 and received a liver transplant on 6/23/2018. We got 4 more years with him after that. Our younger son, Bowman, had only 2 identifiable memories with his dad prior to his transplant. Since the surgery, Brad and Bowman have made MANY memories together that Bowman will always have. Brad suffered for years with illness and pain, but he showed up as much as possible for Kepler and Bowman. Brad’s step-sons consider Brad to be “the greatest step-dad ever.” He is at peace now…no more illness, no more pain. Thank you ALL for everything you have done for Brad, the kids and me.
