In the 1920 U.S. census, Francis's family was living on 2nd West Street, Hurricane. His father Thomas was farming on his own account. The children at home included Vernet, 17, a farm hand on the family farm, Elma, 15, Lela, 12, Lucile, 9, Louis, 6, and Francis, 2. All of the children except Francis had attended school. Living with them as renters was his older sister Vera Eagar, 20, and her husband Thomas Eagar, 21, a sheep herder.
In the 1930 U.S. census, Francis's family was described as living on a farm on Third North, Hurricane. His father Thomas was a farmer of a "mixed farm". The children at home were Vernet, 28, a preacher for the LDS church, Lucille, 20, a telephone operator, Louis, 16, a mail boy, and Francis, 13, attending school.
In the 1940 U.S. census, Hurricane, Francis's family was living in the same house as in 1935, which they owned, valued at $1,000. Francis's father Thomas was a farmer and his mother Wilhelmina was a nurse. The last children at home were Jay, 25, a newspaper delivery man for a Reno newspaper distribution company, and Clemons, 22, a sheep herder.
Francis enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corp on 15 Mar 1941 in Salt Lake City. He had completed four years of college, and his civil occupation was listed as "forestry, except logging". According to family records, Francis married Daurthy Louise Horst on 2 May 1942 in Midland, Midland, Texas. This was during his military duty with the U.S. Army Air Force. He obtained the rank of Captain and was discharged from the service on 28 Dec 1945 at Drew Field, Florida.
