Obituary

           Biography In Proverbs 13:22: it states

“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”

          An inheritance is not just about money, it includes wisdom, integrity, and great character. This verse keeps our life goals, our vision and our legacy front and center when we’re choosing our actions.

          Saint Juste Francois’s life was built on this verse. On May 16,1936, in Desdunes,Haiti; Saint Juste Francois was born. His parents were Acelina Cedou Jean Baptiste and Silencieux Francois. He was a father of 12 and 34 grandchildren.     

          Saint Juste Francois had a passion for music. His favorite band was Tropicana and Septen. He loved to lend a hand to those in need.  He was an intelligent man that pursued to inquire a better life. On November 28,1980, he came to the US in search of the American Dream. He had one agenda which was to work hard so that he can take care of his family and to build a legacy. Mr. Francois worked very hard to bring his family to America, so they wouldn’t endure the hardships of Haiti. Around 2006, a long battle with diabetes lead to him having both of his leg’s amputee. Mr. Francois did not let that impede on his life. His resilience motivated him to learned how to adjust to his condition. Saint Juste never shied away from his battles, he fought them head on.

          In 2020, Saint Juste Francois health started to decline. Throughout his sickness, he still managed to bring happiness to those around him. His ability to lighten up a room with his jokes and presence is undeniable.  He came to America with no one, but he has left this earth with pieces of him living in all his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
