Harry Francis, who had served the Castro Valley community in a number of roles for over half a century, passed away at San Ramon Regional Medical Center on Sunday.


For the past 17 years, Mr. Francis had been a member of the Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) Board of Directors, where he was known for his friendly and honest disposition.


“Harry always believed in the importance of Board Members attending and representing CVSan at all of the District’s many events and presentations and he made himself available as much as possible,” said CVSan General Manager Roland Williams. “He will be most remembered for his kindness and compassion towards the entire community.”


Mr. Francis, a graduate of St. Elizabeth’s High School in Oakland, was a small business owner for 40 years. He had formerly served as Alameda County Fire Commissioner and as a member of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District Board.


During his tenure on the CVSan board, he served on many of its committees and was a Commissioner on the East Bay Dischargers Authority Board since 1998. He was also the alternate representative for the Alameda County Special Districts’ Association.


Sanitary District officials will select a replacement for the remaining two years of Member Francis’ term from community candidates. Mr. Francis leaves a wife, Maryann, and three children.


Services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at Transfiguration Catholic Church, 4000 East Castro Valley Blvd. in Castro Valley.
