Francisco Sy Pagsanjan, 64, of Mundelein, IL died of a heart attack while vacationing in Manila, Philippines on January 27th, 2018. The beloved husband of 32 years is survived by his wife, Rosario, 63, and his two sons Alex, 31, and Eric, 28.

Francisco, also known by his nickname “Chito”, was born on June 4th, 1953 in San Jose, Bulacan, Bulacan, Philippines to Vicente Pagsanjan and Bin Sy. As the youngest of six children, he is survived by all his siblings: Kinchong, Segundo, Nene, Juaning, and Sotero.

He attended St. Mary’s Academy for grade school and high school before attending the University of the East in Manila, Philippines where he graduated with a degree in Accounting and earned his CPA. Francis worked in the field of Accounting for 42 years before retiring from Jim Beam Global in 2016. In his retirement, Francisco enjoyed taking long walks with his wife in and around the city of Chicago, gardening, an occasional snack, and eating his favorite Filipino foods. His real passion in life, however, was his family.
