A dark-haired man with a moustacheFILE No.: 1996-2585

But that's where he died - the father of three was shot to death around 8 p.m. in the parking lot at 7766 Martin Grove Rd., while sitting in his green Dodge Caravan. 

Francesco, known by friends and family as Frank, owned Rustic Bakery on Rustic Road in Toronto, near Keele Street and Highway 401.
