SOUTHBRIDGE: Francisco G. Paras III, 39, of Southbridge, passed away on December 30, 2021, due to complications of COVID-19.
He leaves behind his mother Amalia (Guzman) Staton of Southbridge; his stepfather Teddy Staton of Southbridge; his three brothers, Presley Paras and his wife Meerim Paras, Howard Paras, Reagan Paras and his wife Lindsey; nephews Miles Paras, Reagan Paras, and his niece Sally Paras.
Francisco attended Montgomery High School in San Diego, CA where he played basketball and baseball. He was an exceptional athlete during his high school years.
In his free time, he enjoyed reading, writing, and watching sports-particularly, boxing. As an avid sports enthusiast, he had an uncanny ability to memorize stats and dates. When asked about players, he would recite their information in great detail.
Francisco lived with a full heart, a strong moral compass, and was always genuine. Firm in his faith, he attended Sturbridge Worship Center. He deeply loved his family and brought great joy to his niece and nephews. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
