(Thursday - March 04, 2021) - Francis W. Antonissen, age 69, of Niagara, passed away on Wednesday, March 3, at his residence.

Francis was born September 16, 1951, in Norway, son of the late Francis L. and Doris (Boullion) Antonissen. He was a lifelong resident of Niagara and graduated from Niagara High School, class of 1970. He worked for the City of Niagara in the Public Works Department and was a self-employed logger for many years. Francis later went to work for LR Vincent Trucking Company for a short time.

He enjoyed many hobbies, including hunting, fishing, riding his motorcycle, taking flying lessons, and it was his dream to own his own plane as flying really made him happy.
