Fran Borcalli (1942-2019) was Central Oregon’s 2017 Big of the Year. Fran was a devoted Big Brother that went above and beyond to be a mentor not only to his Little Brother, Devin, but to others throughout his life. Fran was the type of BIG that would always put his Little first, willing to do anything Devin wanted to do…even if that meant going to the skate park to encourage Devin in his attempts to learn new scooter tricks, horseback riding, or long boarding on the Deschutes River!
Fran his wife, Nancy, and her Little, Xandria, became a pseudo family to Devin. Fran was a rock for Devin and a male role model during Devin’s pre-teen and teenage years.
Fran unexpectedly passed away on June 24th, 2019, after a life well lived and a legacy of people whose lives are changed forever.
In honoring Fran’s memory, contributions can be made in his name to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon.
