July 20, 1958 ~ December 22, 2020

Francis ‘Frank’ Patrick McConville passed away in Medicine Hat on Tuesday, December 22, 2020. Frank was born on July 20, 1958, in Milton, Ontario, the day man landed on the moon (as he always reminded us). He will always be remembered by his loving family: sisters, Trish (Brian) Carr, Liz (Wayne) Horb, Karen (Walter) McConville; brother, Jim (Jenn) McConville; all of his “special” nieces and nephews and their families; aunts, uncles and cousins both in Canada and in Scotland; his step- grandchildren, whom he loved immensely, Cody and Cameron Schmidt and many good friends and neighbours both here and in California. He was predeceased by his Mum and Dad, Mary and James McConville; his brother, Danny in 1992 and a sister, Michele in 2009.

Frank enjoyed taking care of the family swimming pool in Oakville, Ontario. He loved watching all of his nieces and nephews in the pool with “Crocky”. Frank always watched and rooted for his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs while waiting ‘patiently’ for his team to win the Stanley Cup…again. He got Brian and Trish hooked on watching the Blue Jays games as well. Frank loved driving his quad with his grandchildren and scooting them around town on his scooter. For the last four years, he lived with Brian and Trish in Medicine Hat. He loved going for rides on his scooter with Molly, his faithful companion, running along beside him. He loved Molly and playing with the “Kitty-Cato” Sissy. Frank spent three winters at Sunbeam Lake in California. He made some great friends and was able to ride around the complex. He even had a ride in a sand-rail car! His legs eventually were no longer able to hold him up but he was always positive and thanked the Good Lord that he was able to walk for 30 years after his surgery. Frank was such a blessing to all but especially to Brian and Trish these last four years. He was their ray of sunshine!

‘Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord,

and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest In peace.’
