Brennan Francis, 27, died Sunday off the coast Puerto Rico, his family has confirmed.

"Right now we are praying and taking it one day at a time. It’s a huge loss," a statement from his family says. "He loved his friend of nine years Scholar Jenkins. Jenkins said he was a family man and loved the beach. Brennan took pride in the three kids that they shared together."

His family says that Francis was working for Macro Oil Company assisting with hurricane recovery efforts. He and fellow crew members were swimming at a beach when Francis drowned.

Francis worked for Macro Oil and operated his own local lawn care service, Francis Lawn Care. 

He was a graduate of Northside High and the son of retired Lafayette Police Sgt. Mark Francis, who served as Public Information Officer for the Lafayette Police Department for many years. 

Funeral arrangements are pending.
