Obituary

Ramon Francis Granados, age 83, died Saturday, July 11, 2020. Born in Washington,DC, he was the son of the late Luis Leon Granados, Sr. and Anne Waters Granados.

He is survived by his wife Angelina ‘Star’ Granados, his brother Joe Granados and wife Mickey along with his own children: Christina Granados, Antonio Granados and wife Julie, Lisa Demont and husband Billy, Daniel Granados and wife Janine, Thomas Granados and wife Jayne, and Lee Granados and husband Kevin. He also leaves behind 15 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.

Mr. Granados served in the Naval Reserve and was a lifelong civic servant and community leader in the fire and rescue services in Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD. Beginning in Washington, DC he made his way up from firefighter to Battalion Chief as the Director of Ambulance Services. He served as President of Local 36, International Association of Firefighters from 1973 to 1975 before finally retiring. Under his guidance in DC "Fran" led in the establishment of the helipad at Washington Hospital Center. He went on to serve 12 years as the Director of Fire and Rescue Services for Montgomery County, MD where he helped reshape a mostly volunteer system into a formal county led organization. One of his proudest achievements was establishing a Color Guard to honor fallen heroes.

Fran had been a longtime supporter and member of the Knights of Columbus. Along with high school friend Ben Abell and his brother Joe, they were devoted season ticket holders of the Washington Redskins during the winning years. His other favorite pastimes were gardening, traveling, volunteering with his church, passing time watching the river and spending as much time with his family as possible.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Church Bushwood, MD on Friday, July 17, 2020 at 11am. Friends may call from 10-11am. Please note (The Church requires masks to enter and that hand sanitizer is at the door). The mass will be private and be reserved for family only. Mr. Granados will be buried near his parents at St. John’s Catholic Cemetery Hollywood, MD. A donation in his memory may be made to:
Honor Every Responsible Officer’s Eternal Sacrifice
DC Firefighters Burn Foundation

Granados Family.....I am saddened to learn of the passing of Frannie.....an all around good person. I was privileged to work with Fran during my time in DCFD, with Local 36 and when he lead MCDFRS. He was a visionary leader and doer. In all instances's, he was a trusted and valued mentor from whom I learned much. Till we meet again Fran. May God continue to bless the Granados Family......Steve Souder, Kent Island, MD

As with all others, I am saddened by Fran's loss. I worked in the same fire/rescue service arena in Montgomery County with him and while we didn't always agree, I was constantly in awe of his kindness, integrity and easy going manner. Knowing him was a pleasure. My thoughts are with his wife and family.

RIP
