  • September 30: Rick Francis Celebration of Life

    A Celebration of Life honoring Rick Francis will take place on Saturday, September 30 at 1 p.m., at Phillips Stevens Chapel on Williston’s campus. A reception will follow in the school’s Dodge Room inside the Reed Campus Center. All are invited to attend both the service and the reception. Guests are also welcome to attend a 3:30 p.m. home football game vs. Hotchkiss on Sawyer Field, a fitting contest for a coach so dedicated to excellence on the gridiron.

    Williston has also created a webpage honoring Mr. Francis, which can be found here. The page contains written and video content of Mr. Francis, including some game films from the undefeated 1963 season. So many alumni and faculty have shared what a profound effect Mr. Francis had on them at Williston and beyond. If you have not had a chance, please visit our In Memoriam page to read the tributes.

    Per the family’s wishes, donations in memory of Mr. Francis may be made here to the Rick and Marilyn Francis Appreciation Fund. Simply select “other” in the designation drop down and add to the comment section. This endowed scholarship fund was established in 2000 by alumni and friends to honor Mr. Francis and his wife, Marilyn, at the time of his retirement.
