A lot of people have been asking me "Are you taking donations for Frans two daughters?" I said absolutely! This page has been set up so Frans friends and loved ones can donate to Frans two duaghters. On Tuesday, October 23rd, Fransisco "paquito" Solorio was doing what he loved, surfing a nice swell with his friends, at surf beach just north of Santa Barbara. Fran was headed to shore trailing three of his friends when he was attacked by a 16 foot great white shark. The shark bit Fran in his upper left torso causing fatal wounds. Heroic measures were taken by his friends that were surfing with him, but the wounds he suffered were too severe, and Frans life could not be saved. At the age of 10 Fran developed a love of surfing. he was a devoted husband and father and his family was his life. He was stoked to be at the beach, even if the conditions were not perfect. Fran would always paddle out with the stoke of a man with a deep love and understanding of the ocean. Fran's wife and two beautiful daughters need your help. This memorial page has been established to help with the final expences and to establish a fund for the benefit of his two daughters Frankie and Monique.
