Francis Charles Metzger

francis metzger

December 3, 1933 ~ August 22, 2018

Resided in: Roseville, California

Former longtime resident of Fremont, CA who currently resided in Roseville, CA passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on August 22, 2018. His Wife LaVerne Metzger, his Son John Metzger, his Daughters Jennifer Corbett and Mary Albizo, late Stepson Robert Walker, Stepdaughter Karen Walker and many Nieces and Nephews survive him. Francis was known for his infectious smile and laugh. He was an avid San Francisco Giants and 49ers fan. He loved going to the games and telling the players what they were doing wrong. After he retired, he spent most of his free time making antique Swedish clocks. When he moved to Fremont in 1966 his passion was to build a Japanese garden in the backyard that included a full size Pagoda that stood the test of time. And of course, fixing anything that anyone needed fixing. He loved his children but his true calling was spending time with his grandchildren. He always wanted to make sure everyone was happy and if there was anything he could do to help. He will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers feel free to make donations to Interim Hospice of Sacramento or Holy Spirit Parish in Memory of Francis Metzger.

Memories Timeline


  1. Having known Francis and how special he was to all of you as a husband, father, grandfather and friend, his passing is physically difficult. But it was obvious he was a man with a strong foundation derived from his faith in God and I am sure the belief that his passing is the start of a new eternal journey. When I first met Francis he won my respect immediately not only as a Navy veteran but also as a decent human being with an infectious and gentle smile and warm hand extended, one who will remain in the hearts of many including Joann and I. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” You all have Joann’s and I empathy during this time of departure but as we bid him farewell, in heaven it is, “Welcome aboard sailor.” Francis, go with God and RIP..

  2. RIP cousin Francis from all the LaMarres. We remember fondly all those wonderful family get-togethers with the Schmidts, Metzgers and LaMarres. You will be missed.
