Providing a better life for his children was Frank’s number one priority so the family emigrated to Canada in the late 1980s, where they started a new life together, settling in Edmonton. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Frank is survived by his wife Anna, daughters Mayka & Alicja and son Grzegorz, as well as granddaughters Gabriella and Alexandra. Frank was known for his clever wit and great sense of humour. When he wasn’t watching hockey, he loved discussing Polish politics and talking about his travels to Italy. He loved his garden but his greatest joy was his family and friends. The family wishes to thank all those who cared for Frank over the last few months, Edziu, Marysia, staff at Miller Crossing Care Center, Ed from Tymins, and others. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************** ******************************************************************************************************************************************************** W sobotę, 24 września 2016 roku, Franciszek (Frank) Ignatowicz zmarł w wieku 70 lat.
