    My Condolences to the entire family ! Frank was a very influential part of a lot of young kids growing up in the Swift Current Sk area ! Running the arcade he was always interested in what “his” kids did for the day at school and never hesitated to walk by and throw a few quarters in your game !!

  • Sheena and Kevin Denscombe says:

    Growing up, I always thought Uncle Frank was the coolest uncle ever. I have so many fond memories. An extra big hug to Aunt Carol! Sending everyone in the family my love and support at this difficult time. Thinking of everyone! *Hugs*

    Our condolences………..Frank was a wonderful person and lots of fun. We will miss his friendly smile and chuckles.

  • Penny & Don Anderson says:

    Losing a love one is never easy. If ever two were one, then surely you and Frank were. If ever a man was loved by a wife, Frank was. If ever a wife was happy in a man, you were Carol. The two of you as a couple dipicked the real meaning of true love! To have each other for 62 years of marriage is a feat in itself. It was a pleasure to have you both in our home whenever you were in Saskatchwan. Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of Frank and may it provide you comfort In knowing others share your loss. Frank will never be forgotten by Don & I as long as we live!

    Molly & Blaine
    Loved ones live on through us in the things they said, the things they did and the stories they’ve told. Molly your father always bragged about you, sharing how wonderful you were and what a good daughter you are. I hope you know that you meant the world to him. I hope in the days ahead you will take time to remember all the good times you shared with your father and all the love he gave you throughout the years. He is not gone; rather, will be watching over you forever.
    Your dad was a wonderful man and will be missed!
    Love Penny & Don

    Dear Caroline & family:
    Heartfelt sympathy to each and every one of you. I would have loved to have been there in person to give my support. I will always treasure the memories we had together when John was alive – we had a lot of fun and a lot of laughter. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.
    Love Mary Sebastian & family

    So sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. I have many fond memories of Doug and I hanging around Carol’s Lunch, being at your home and other occasions where we were amused by Frank’s subtle humour. I am honoured to have known such a fine man. He will be missed.
