Roman Kenneth Franklin

   Roman Kenneth Franklin entered into rest Sunday, January 14, 2018 at the age of 48. Born in Hayward on December 18, 1969, he grew up with his family in Angels Camp where he attended Mark Twain
Elementary School and Bret Harte High School.

   Roman was active in his community, participating in Angeles Ranus 4-H, wrestling, football and Bret Harte FFA. He was an avid member of St. Patricks Church of Angels Camp where he was an altar boy.

   Roman exhibited an incomparable work ethic. As a teen, he worked for David Cundiff Cabinetry as well as for the Pepsi Distribution Company, both in Angels Camp.  He also dabbled in vehicle
restoration. He graduated from Bret Harte with the class of 1988.

   After high school, Roman set off to Redwood City to pursue an education in the field of Radiology. He graduated from Canada School of Radiology in 1991. Then, he began working at Stanford University Medical Center as a Radiological Technician, where he quickly became to Radiology Department Manager while continuing his education.

   Roman worked tirelessly to build a life that would make anyone proud. While at Stanford, Roman met his former wife. In 1996 they married and a few short years later came their daughter Lauren followed by their son, Radford.

   Roman led a prosperous career in the medical field before his life was cut short by a sudden illness. Roman will always be loved and remembered by his children Lauren Anna Franklin and Radford John Franklin; his mother Coleen Franklin; his brother John Christian Franklin; his nephews John Duncan and Porter Jack Franklin; his sister Shannon Benge; and his nieces Nicole and Amanda Benge as well as countless aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

   Roman will be dearly missed by all those lucky enough to have known him.  Angels Memorial Chapel is handling arrangements.
