Francis was born and raised in Virden MB on May 26, 1942. He met his wife Rita in Picture Butte and knew she was the one. They married within 6 months and the adventure continued for the next 58 years. Working at a bank gave them the opportunity to live in many communities throughout Alberta. They eventually settled down in Raymond and Francis worked at Kawneer for over 20 years until his retirement. Upon retirement, Francis and Rita moved to Lethbridge where they lived until his passing.
Francis participated in many hobbies and activities including coaching and watching hockey, union participation, bingo, bowling, walking and the casino.
Friendly Frankie was always there to help everyone including doing their taxes. He loved and adored his grandchildren and the newest great grandchildren that made him smile and laugh. We will all miss his laughter and teasing!
As per Francis’ wishes there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Jack Addy Cancer Centre, 960 19 St S, Lethbridge, AB T1J 1W5.
