Francisco Galang Bautista, Jr. was a leader, a husband, a father, an entrepreneur...

Frank was born on December 10, 1928 in Masantol, Pampanga in the Philippines.

He married Corazon Lacap in 1953 and also graduated law school that same year. In 1964, at the age of 36, Frank ran for mayor of his hometown and with his win became one of the youngest mayors in the town's history. He and wife Corazon had 8 children and moved to the United States in 1968.

In 1970, Frank and Corazon purchase a home in San Francisco's Sunset District, a predominantly Irish and Italian American community at the time.

At the age of 50, and after 10 years at John Hancock, Frank decides to open his own business as an independent insurance broker.

After a decade long battle with kidney disease, and surrounded by his family, Frank passed away on May 22, 2000 at the age of 71. He will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him.
