Meuse. Death of Francis Favé, mayor of Vaucouleurs

Francis Favé died this Tuesday, April 30, struck down by a heart attack at the age of 56.

The announcement of this sudden and unexpected death arouses emotion among Valcolorois and residents of the canton, as well as within the political class.

Indeed, Francis Favé became mayor in 2017, following the death of Paul Wittmann, was elected departmental councilor with his Vidusian counterpart, Sylvie Rochon and he was second vice-president of the Commercy-Void-Vaucouleurs community of communes.

Born on April 4, 1968, in Nancy, Francis Favé grew up in a family with deep Valcolore ties. He completed a BEP at Saint-Jo in Nancy, before continuing his studies at a textile school in Épinal. He quite naturally took over the saddlery-leather goods-tarpaulin business from his grandfather, then from his father, Pierre, developing the business by adding an activity of blinds and closures. Although he had just sold it to one of his employees, he had kept part of his self-employed clientele.

A man with multiple commitments, he had taken on responsibilities at the Chamber of Trades, where he was vice-president from 2010 to 2015, but also of the Professional Union of Crafts and the National Confederation of Crafts and Trades. services, of which he was the departmental president. He was also chairman of the board of directors of the Meuse Valley nursing home.

In 1993, he married Nathalie, and after living on rue de la République, they moved to Grivaux, completely renovating the house. She had become his collaborator.

A man of contact, curious about everything, warm, passionate about local history, photography and communication, Francis loved discovering France and Europe during his multiple travels. He was also involved in the pairing with Neidenstein since the inception in 1976.

The date of his funeral is not yet known. Our condolences.
