FRANK "FRANCO" DEPORRA Obituary
FRANK "FRANCO" DEPORRA Frank "Franco" dePorra, passed away, March 25, 2018, at home, in Paso Robles, California, after a long battle with cancer, surrounded by his family and friends. He was born 1949, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Franco was a 40-year resident of Las Vegas, a town he loved and where he enjoyed a wonderful life. His career began in the gourmet rooms at the Dunes, Tropicana, Maxim and Barbary Coast hotels. Nicky Blair's Restaurant and the locals favorite, Fellini's, were some of his fond memories, both because of the people he met and the friendships he would hold dear for life. Franco's love of travel, food and wine would take both he and his wife, Cathy, to Europe, South America and across the United States. However, he found his favorite wine county getaway in Paso Robles, where he would settle down in 2015. The friendships and sense of community that he grew to enjoy in Paso gave him great joy during the last days of his life. "A man much loved, a life well-lived, Franco you will be forever missed." Franco is also survived by his daughter, who resides, with her husband and three wonderful children, in Mexico. No services are scheduled.
