Francisco (Cisco) Alecia, 50, of Watervliet, NY, passed away on December 24th, 2020
at home in Watervliet.
Cisco was born in Albany, NY to Gloria E. McKenzie and the late Wittie (Willie) D.
Jones on January 27th, 1970. After high school, Cisco joined the U.S Army (2nd
Armored Cavalry Regiment) in Germany from 1988 until 1990. After serving and
coming back to New York, Cisco met his forever love Lorraine in 2001 and married
on December 12th, 2012 making 19 beautiful years together in August. He went on to
earn an Associates Degree in Culinary from Schenectady County Community College.
He worked as a Chef for multiple restaurants over the years. He enjoyed listening to
music, playing cards, playing pool, shooting darts, watching Yankee games, playing
with his dogs, his 2 lovely daughters and going to state fairs with his family. He joined
the Bowling League associated with Del Lanes in 2005-2015 and was involved in
several events at the local Elks Club and the VA Hospital throughout many years.
Cisco was a devoted husband and loving father of 2 beautiful young girls Caitlyn age
18, and Jaidyn age 12. Cisco had the amazing opportunity to watch his daughter
Caitlyn go off to college in August. We also cannot forget his other children (puppies)
Bailey, Sheba and Max. Cisco was known for his silly and fun personality, he always
knew how to bring life into a room. He will be dearly missed.

McKenzie, 2 sisters Deanna (Stephen) Jones and Kimberly (Eric) Speight, 2 nieces
Shiaria McCall and Markeisha Jones, 2 great nieces E’Layah and Emarie Jones, 3
