Obituary for Francis G. Dowling III

Francis G. Dowling III, age 67 of Brown City, passed away December 13, 2018. He was born November 2, 1951 to Francis and Sonia Dowling. Francis was an incredibly talented man. He was a builder and for many years also owned and operated a concrete business that he eventually sold. Francis loved to work outside and tinker with electronics and cars. He retired from Ford Motor Company after 33 years as a highly skilled Engine Repair Technician. Francis was innovative and handy when it came to fixing anything. He had a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh that couldn't be mistaken. He was a sentimental and loving family man who thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his family and taking his seven children camping at the Higgins Lake South State Park. He will be deeply missed by many family members and friends.

He is survived by his wife Jo Dowling; 7 children: Bryce Dowling, Corey Dowling, Amanda (Travis) Facca, Dawn Dowling, Holly Dowling, Rachelle (Alan) Fleury, and Julia (Scott) Black; step-sons: John McClelland Jr. and Keith McClelland; grandchildren Alex, Max, Gabe, Sophia, Samantha, Ashley, Zachary, Cyreese, Emma, Adriel, Liam, Tucker, Alyssa, Lauren, Alexandra, Catherine, and Lillian; sisters Sharal Burton, Darlene Peterson, Linda Dowling, and Christine Greenwood.
