Frank (Francis) "Cic" Williams, 81, a native San Franciscan and 51 year resident of Marin, passed away suddenly at Marin General Hospital on Sunday, September 3, 2017. He was the son of Pat Williams (Pasquale Guglielmi) and Florence Raganelli, and the loving husband of Florence Williams for 54 years.
Frank "Cic" graduated from Balboa High School in the fall of 1954 (ceremony January 1955), and graduated from San Francisco City College and San Francisco State College. At age 18, he enlisted in the Navy Reserves. In his young adult years, he enjoyed playing semi-pro baseball for the John Siri Foods Baseball Team. He graduated from the San Francisco Police Academy in 1960, and served in the San Francisco Police Department at various stations (including Potrero, Bayview, Ingleside, Richmond and Taraval) for 34 years until his retirement as a Lieutenant rank police officer in 1994. Frank was dedicated to helping others, both in his career as a police officer as well as in his personal life. He loved being a policeman and spoke proudly of his days on the beat. He was a longtime member of the San Francisco Baseball Old Timers, whose luncheons and gatherings he enjoyed attending.
Frank led an exemplary life, and as such, had a deep understanding of what is truly important. He was dedicated to his family and his friends whom he loved dearly. He generously gave his time to help others, and always placed the interests of others before his own. He was a devout Catholic who attended Mass daily, and practiced the teachings of the Church. He often expressed his patriotism and gratitude for this country, and he was proud of his Italian heritage. His other interests included listening to conservative talk radio, gardening and cooking.
Frank was father to Mike, Amy (who passed away shortly after birth), Julie Caputo, and Janie Glover. He was father-in-law to their spouses: Elvie, Adriano, and George. He was the adoring grandfather of 10 grandchildren: Rachel, Matthew, Amy, Anthony, Joey, Vinny, Gianna, Gabriel, Sofia, and Christian. He was the caring brother of Florenceann "Babe" O'Rourke (who passed away on March 3, 2017), Victor "Bud" Williams (Nancy) and Mary Lou "Chris" MacCrone. He was the uncle to many nieces and nephews. He will be terribly missed by all.
