It is with a sad heart that I present these photos to you, and with my deepest condolences to Fran’s wife Kasey, daughter Monique, Fran’s family and Fran’s family in the Surfing community. Yesterday a great tragedy hit our community. My friend Francisco Solorio was taken from this life while he was doing what he loved so passionately, surfing. Fran was bit by what was probably a Great White shark while surfing at one of his favorite beaches. Heroic measures were tried by his friends that were surfing with him, but the wound he suffered was too sever, and Fran’s life could not be saved.
Fran, I hope right now you are shredding perfect waves in Heaven. Rest in Peace my friend, and Aloha Nui Loa……Liebsie
