Franz had been at Dakota House for the last seven years and where he continued his love of playing cribbage, Mexican trains and playing his music with his good friend Margaret Rempel.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • We are deeply sorry Ron and Kathy for the loss of your father. Just cherish the memories. - Posted by: Ray and Ina Adams (Kathy his daughter in law is my niece) on: Feb 12, 2023

  • I had the privelege to know this man. He was a kind, gentle and funny man. He shared with me his struggle of working as a Chef while struggling with the language - the people that helped him and those that didn't, the long hours away from his family but then the pride of being able to give his family a good life at the end of his career. He missed his wife so much and it meant alot to him to take her to her final resting place to the most beautiful peaceful spot in the world.. He loved to play his keyboard and get out and play crib with friends. He never missed a day of walking - even at 101 years- believing that walking kept you young -his mind was sharp as a whip! Rest in peace Frank -and I hope you are with your Charlotte once again. You will be missed. - Posted by: Sheila Selluski (friend) on: Feb 11, 2023
