It is with sadness, we announce the passing of Frank Xavier Singer Jr. on July 20, 2021, at the age of 90 years.  Frank was predeceased by his wife of 63 years Dilys in 2015 and his parents Frank Xavier Singer and Maria Singer (Bavarian emigrants in the late 1920s). He will be missed by extended family, nieces, nephews and friends.

Frank was born in the Belgo district of Rutland, BC on March 21, 1931, and spent most of his life in his orchards in Glenmore and Lakeview Heights West Kelowna.
His innovative and progressive farming practices were recognized throughout the community. Frank was an original charter member of the WB Lions club and a board member of BC Tree Fruits. He was an advocate for the establishment of the Lakeview irrigation and the building of the Rose Valley reservoir. Frank became a developer and a business owner of multifamily, industrial and commercial complexes. His business acumen extended into cabinet manufacturing and the well-known Shady Rest fish and chip shop.  His philanthropy extended to the Salvation Army, Kelowna General hospital and other causes.
