October 2, 1923 – November 2, 2012

At his request, no service will be held.

Frank passed from life peacefully at Hospice House. Survived by his wife, Hilda and his loving family, sons Frank (Susan), Michael (Joanne), daughters Elisabeth (Jari), Susie (Nick), seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Dad was born in Graz, Austria and immigrated to Canada with his wife and two children in 1954.

He lived in Vancouver until moving to the Okanagan in 1980, developing a large network of friends due to his generous and kind nature. This was evident in his final days as many came to say goodbye.

He will be missed by his friends at Carrington Court, the Edelweiss Club and the Austria Vancouver Club.

Many enjoyed his baking during special occasions, when he prepared dozens of gingerbread hearts and Christmas houses in his tiny apartment. This small bakery is now closed.

Memorial donations in Frank’s name may be made to the North Okanagan Hospice Society.
