Francis was born in Guyana, South America and immigrated to Canada in 1975 after serving many years in the Guyana Police Force. Life ended rather suddenly in the Brampton Civic Hospital where he took his last breath in the early morning of August 17. He is predeceased by his mother and father, Valdrina and Francis Waithe as well as his sister Joy Robertson. Francis leaves behind his wife Haliman Rodrigues-Waithe, his three children: Gairy, Marvel and Alisha Waithe along with six grandchildren. He also leaves behind his brothers- Dr. Kenrick Waithe, Dennis Waithe and George Waithe; and sisters - Megan Bynoe, Myrna (Sandrine) Alves, and Bernadette Daw.

Francis was an avid cricketer and sports enthusiast who loved people, was exceedingly friendly, enjoyed a good drink, cooking and gardening. He worked in many businesses but spent the most significant part of his working life at the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General as a Court Services Officer where he served for approximately twenty four years and built many enduring friendships.
