FRANK N. HARTY, beloved husband of Joyce Harty, of Foremost, Alberta, passed away at the Foothills Medical Centre on Sunday, July 5, 2015 at the age of 78 years.

Frank was born on July 18, 1937, the youngest child of Frank & Mary of the Hoping District.

He is survived by his loving wife Joyce, his children; Marilynn Hirsche (Chad) and their children Tyler and Justin, and Scott (Kathy) Harty and their children Brooke, Jennifer, Layne and Taite, two sisters; Barbara Kanig and Rose Foss, three brothers; Ben, Matt (Dorothy), Lawrence (Ruthann), brothers-in-law Les (Fay) O’Hara and Allen (Vivian) O’Hara and sister-in-law Margaret O’Hara and their families as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Frank was predeceased by his parents Frank and Mary, mother and father-in-law John and Grayce O’Hara, sister-in-law Margaret Harty and brothers-in-law Earl Foss and Tony Kanig.

Frank loved his daily golf game with friends and grandkids. He was a member of the church choir, where he will be greatly missed.

He was the epitome of a real gentleman; quiet, kind-hearted and unassuming.
