Flabio Franco

August 9, 1957 — March 20, 2024

Odessa, TX

Deacon Flabio "Fly" Franco, a devout servant of God and beloved member of the

Odessa, TX community, peacefully passed away on March 20, 2024. He was

surrounded by the love of his family at the time of his passing.


Flabio was born on August 9, 1957, in Odessa, TX, to the late Pablo and Bertha

Franco. He was raised in a home filled with love, faith, and strong family values.

On September 5, 1975, Flabio entered into a sacred union with his beloved

Priscilla Quiroz, marking the beginning of a journey filled with love and

companionship that endured for almost five decades.


Flabio answered the call to serve the Catholic Church and was ordained as a

Deacon on August 23, 2005. Throughout his years of ministry, he touched the

hearts of many with his unwavering faith, compassion, and dedication to St.

Joseph’s and St. Anthony’s church community. His service as a Deacon was

marked by his genuine care for others and his commitment to spreading the

message of God's love.


Above all, Flabio cherished his family. He was a devoted husband, father,

grandfather, and great-grandfather who found immense joy in spending time with

his loved ones. He took great pride in attending the athletic events of his

grandchildren and great-grandson, where he cheered them on with pride and

sometimes a bit of sarcasm.


Flabio is preceded in death by his parents, Pablo and Bertha Franco, his brother

Hugo Franco, his granddaughter Brianna Marissa, and many other relatives who

have passed before him.


Flabio leaves behind a legacy of love and faith that will forever be cherished by

his family. He is survived by his devoted wife, Priscilla Franco, his loving

daughters Jennifer Rios (Robert) and Jessica Dominguez (Jason). He will be

deeply missed by his grandchildren Victoria Guadarrama (Mike), Brianna,

Brandon, Ryan, Robinne, Dallas, Austin, and his great-grandchildren Jaxon,

Jalen, Jack and Houston. Flabio is also survived by his brother Orlando Franco,

sister Minnie Sustaita, and many cherished family members.


The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to Interim Healthcare Hospice for their

compassionate care during Flabio's final days.
