A man affectionately called "The Bug Man" for his pest control work at local elementary schools, Jim Franco (age 58), was pronounced dead over the weekend at UCSF Medical Center. He had been considering retirement and was living in a rented room about 200 feet from the blast site. He's been in a medically induced coma for most of the last three weeks due to the severity of his burns. Franco had somewhat of a cult following among school children in San Bruno, many of whom were planning to make banners to hang in his hospital room and have been consistently asking "When is the Bug Man going to get better?"
