There was an error in the announcement for Frank Morales’ Church service.  Please see below for the corrected times.  In addition there will be an after servers memorial at the Basque Cultural Center.


Information Technology Services staff are sad to report that our long-time colleague and friend Frank (Francisco) Morales died last Friday, September 5.  Frank, who retired in February after more than three decades in ITS, was 66.


Frank started working at CCSF in 1983, quickly distinguishing himself as a skillful programmer and analyst.  He worked on the old Honeywell and Bull systems that CCSF used until the ‘90’s, concentrating on programming for the proprietary database systems that then handled enrollment and other facets of the college’s business.  When CCSF changed to an Oracle database platform for Banner, Frank played a dual role of backup Data Base Administrator and applications programmer/analyst, covering all aspects of Oracle and Banner, and was integrally involved in converting from the old systems to the new.


He became primary DBA in 1999.  Masterful at the job, Frank invariably figured out how to solve problems and make enhancements.  He worked long hours and was always available to help in off-hours or even when traveling.  He gave greatly to the college.  But most special about Frank was his kindness and generosity.  He gave freely of his knowledge and his time to colleagues, with good spirits, geniality and wit, even when all around him was chaos.  It was a real pleasure to work with Frank.


Frank leaves behind his wife, Maria, adult children Frank, William and Michelle, and two grandsons.  A memorial mass will be held on Thursday, September 18, at 9:30 am at Corpus Christi Church, 62 Santa Rosa Avenue, San Francisco.


After the Church service, a lunch memorial will be offered in his honor at 12:00 noon at the Basque Cultural Center. The address is:

599 Railroad Avenue. South San Francisco, CA 94080
