On Saturday, June 30, 2012, Frank passed away at the Ridgeview Lodge. He was born in Moravia, Czech Republic on November 7, 1919.
He is survived by his wife Elfrieda, his son Glen (Grace), his two grandchildren Xander and Isaac, his brother Jaroslava and other relatives in the Czech Republic.
Frank was a dedicated employee for the Bata Shoe Company and opened several stores throughout Canada. The last shoe store was in North Kamloops in 1959, where he worked as a manager, but was not willing to relocate and after 30 years he started in the same position in Gallenkamp. When that store closed after six years he was helping out selling shoes in Corea McDonald and the Big Boot Inn, until he had to give up what he loved doing at the age of 71 due to health problems.
Thank you to the caring staff at the Ridgeview Lodge, it was very much appreciated.
No formal service by his request, cremation entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service.
