Hale FrancisHALE, Francis (Frank)  –    May 12, 1929 - July 16, 2022

Our family is heartbroken to announce the passing of Frank, a treasured Dad, Gran and Great Gran, on Saturday, July 16, 2022 at Lakeridge Health Oshawa in his 93rd year. 

Devoted and cherished husband for 68 years of the late Sheila (2021), precious and beloved Dad of Janet (Matt) and Peter (Joanne), much adored and treasured Gran of Jordan (Yun), Megan (Michael) and Sebastian, and proud Great Gran of Kleia and Baby Breech.

Also predeceased by his brother Jim and sister-in-law Nora, sister Joan and brother-in-law Chris, sister-in-law Pat and brother-in-law Tony, and nephew Allan, all of the U.K.  He is survived by his nieces and nephew and extended family in the U.K.

Dad had the best smile, laugh and sense of humour and was always the first to crack a joke.  He cared for and looked after Mum until her passing only 8 months ago.  It gives us comfort that he and Mum are now both together again forever.  We are so thankful that he was able to meet Kleia and that he knew Baby Breech is on the way.

We will miss you everyday and you will remain in our hearts and be much loved forever.

Arrangements entrusted to  W.C. TOWN FUNERAL CHAPEL, Whitby.  As per Dad's wishes, cremation has taken place.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
