12 October, 1933 – 13 October, 2016 Frank left us this morning for an early flight. Predeceased by his first wife Ella, his sister Helen and daughter-in-law Lene. He will be lovingly remembered by his sons Mark (Tamara), Collin (Sheila); his wife Vivia; stepsons Lou (Alison) Du Hamel, Guy (Leah) Du Hamel; 10 grandchildren, Kelsey, Brent, Elishia, Kyle, Mitchell, Livia, Alec, Charles, CaSandra and Desmond; one great-granddaughter Lucy, sister Agnes Nemeth and sister-in-law Verna Hayward. Frank started his working years with a tool box at his side. He spent 21 years in the RCAF, flying Search and Rescue. When he retired from the Air Force, he went on to a second career with BC Parks and Housing, and then he spent a few years keeping the firetrucks rolling for the District of North Vancouver. After his final retirement, he continued repairing and rebuilding cars in the back garage until Vascular Dementia started to take charge. For the past 3½ years, Frank has been a resident of Delta View Life Enrichment Center where he was lovingly cared for by an exceptional staff of trained care givers. A Gathering of his friends and family will be held in the Family Room at Delta View Life Enrichment Center, located at 9321 Burns Road in Delta, BC from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
