It is with great sadness that we announce that Frank has passed away peacefully at St. Mike¹s Palliative Care. Born November 5, 1938 in Nowimiasto, Poland. During the war Frank moved around with his family to Germany to be closer to his father. After the war, he immigrated with his family to Venezuela, South America where they resided for 5 years. After which they immigrated to Canada landing in Montreal. Travelling by train across Canada in 1952 the family made their home in Diamond City for a short time and later moved to Raymond where he attended school. His school years were short lived as Frank started working at a young age finding jobs all over Alberta and Saskatchewan working on the rigs and Highway Construction and as a farm hand. In 1958 Frank started at Canbra Foods where he moved up to be a special operator in the refinery. Frank married Stella Jean Wiklund in 1961, having one son Darren. Frank lost Jeannie to a long and courageous battle of cancer in 1992. He then met and married Kathy in 1996. After 42 years of working at Canbra Foods, Frank retired in 2000 and picked up his golf clubs and made that his new occupation. Frank was a member of the Magrath Golf Course for over 30 years, bringing home a few trophies. During his first year of cancer and following his lung surgery he got his first hole-in-one on the Riverside Golf Course in Fairmont, BC. Frank also enjoyed bowling and again many trophies he brought home. He loved going over to visit his brother at the condo and playing pool with him and his buddies. He was an avid Hurricanes Hockey fan and had season tickets for years. He also loved to go walking and hiking. Every year in September Frank would start planning and designing the Christmas Village; he would spend many hours building bridges, tunnels and roadways. One year it took half the basement. It was all a great work of love for him. He leaves us, having earned the respect of his friends and the love and gratitude of his family. Our prayers are now that he is off playing golf and being the engineer he has always dreamed of being.

We were so very proud of all your achievements, Mom! Mom¹s cooking & baking was another hit for her family and all their friends. Her children¹s friends seemed to know when she was baking bread, cinnamon buns and banana cream pie. We always had lots of friends to walk us home on those days! Family events were a larger part of Mom¹s life and she was always a good sport when it came to participating in games, skits, singing or whatever it took to bring laughter. Mom worked hard for her family and instilled in her children a strong work ethic and encouraged them to follow their dreams. Mom touched many hearts and will be lovingly remembered and missed by her eight Grandchildren, Cameron (Jennifer), Darren (Kathryn), Rob (Jody), Grady, Mary Wyatt (Don), Brad (Leigh) Calvin (Claire), and Taylor. Mom¹s family continued with nine Great Grandchildren, Kyle (Erin), Jesse, Kim, Jordan, Clancy, Sam, Brooke, Edison and Morgan and was looking forward to welcoming her Great, Great Granddaughter due in September.
