My sincere condolences to Suzanne, their children & family. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families on their loss. I met Frank & Suzanne at Environment Canada in 2011 where we all worked. Frank was a fun guy, full of jokes, a avid sports fan where he bled blue, gold for Wpg and orange for Tennessee. We played golf together at St. Boniface Golf club and I enjoyed those chats on the 2nd floor at 123 main street. Will miss you buddy, hope to meet again someday on that course in the clouds.

To Mike, Rick, Barb, Pam, Marise, France and Annick plus all his nieces and nephews! - Please accept my utmost condolences in the passing of Frank! He was a once in a lifetime friend whom one will never forget. I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Frank for 35 years! We had some fantastic discussions over the years and I will miss him deeply!! His greatest achievements are his 3 girls of whom he was infinitely proud! He was gregarious and intensely loyal. Frank and I spent many, many good times together enjoying the "fruits" of life! He was a person that could make you feel genuinely like you were the only person in the room which, was amazing as long as you were wearing Blue & Gold and came from east of "the Gap"! Frankie, I wish you nothing but birdies and pars on God's golf course. May you forever rest in peace! Your friend David

My condolences to Frank’s family. Gone too soon, too young. Losing guys like Frank from one’s life just reinforces some of life’s old adages. Things change…sometimes very quickly and dramatically. Change creates new normals which are not necessarily better than the old ones! Enjoy/cherish the moment, be it a simple Zoom/phone call or a football or hockey game. And, like The Specials sang, Enjoy Yourself…I think Frank really enjoyed life! Rest well, my friend. Miss you already! Buck

My sincere condolences to Frank’s family, and especially, his beloved daughters Marise, Annick and France. Frank was an amazing friend and person. I will forever cherish the memories and many laughs we shared over the years, and will miss our friendship and weekly discussions more than words can express. He was truly ‘one of a kind’ and I am so thankful for the time I was able to spend with him.

I have many fond memories of Frank in our years together in the weather office. Good natured, talkative, happy, and always ready with a story (usually about the Bombers), he used his experiences and expertise to help keep my forecasts in line with reality. His family became a weather-office family as the kids were born and grew up. He was one of the good ones and his early death is a sad comment on the vagaries of Nature.

I'm sorry to hear of Franks passing. We worked together for many years before he went to work for Environmental Protection branch. I remember his severe dislike of mice. He told me once to not expect him to chase one down in the office. He would be on a desk, along with others who disliked Rodentia. Which was fine, the little darlings don't bother me. He was a fun dude, and did love his Blue Bombers. I'm sure he was over the moon when they won the 2019 Grey Cup. I am a 27 year Bomber ticket holder. The next time there is a game, I will have a beer for Frank, and question EVERY call that goes against the Bombers. So long Frank. Hugs to the family.

You were taken too soon from this world Frank. We've been almost 2 decades removed from each other but I have memories like they were yesterday of playing slo-pitch, jawing on a nightshift, enjoying a beverage or picking hockey players into the wee hours of the morning. You embraced life and enjoyed it to the fullest. Your passion for the Bombers helped make me a fan while Ottawa was trying to decide on a franchise that would stick. My sincerest condolences to the family that you leave behind. Our memories will be your legacy. Cheers.

Shocked and saddened to hear about Frank. Too soon and too young. We worked closely together for a number of years with Environment Canada. A very likeable and capable guy, a true “people person” with lots of energy, intelligence, a great laugh, a twinkle in his eye and a passion for the Bombers. Whenever I see a gorilla suit or a stuffed mouse I’ll think of him. He will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to the family.

I was so sad to hear of Uncle Frank's passing. Some of my fondest memories are of staying with Uncle Frank, Auntie Suzanne, Marise, France and Annick when attending college. Memories I will cherish always. Rest in peace Uncle Frank and "Go Bombers!"
