Frank Fisher

FRANK Fisher:

1919 – 2013

It is with deep sorrow that the family of Frank Fisher announce his passing on Thursday, July 11, 2013 in Cranbrook, British Columbia at 94 years of age.

Frank was born in Natal, British Columbia on April 2, 1919. He grew up in the beautiful Elk Valley and enjoyed hunting, fishing and trapping throughout the valley and in various other communities throughout his life. As a young man Frank served in the Canadian Army in World War II and then returned to Canada to start a new life where he worked in various jobs in mining, forestry, on the railroad, and at a sawmill. He lived throughout different parts of British Columbia, but spent most of his life with his loving family in the East Kootenays. Frank had a terrific zest for life. He enjoyed a good retirement which included over 20 years of living in Morrissey engaged in active fishing, hunting, and trapping until his health slowed him down from his favourite outdoor activities.

Frank is survived by his daughter Carmen Sprlak of Kamloops, sons Randy (Linda) of Ft. St. John, Ron (Edgar) of Elko, and Eric (Tim) of Cranbrook, and daughter Shirley Eleuterio (Frank) of Wardner. He will also be remembered lovingly by seven grandchildren, and numerous great grandchildren. Frank was predeceased by his wife Frances of 33 years, and later on by his companion Liz Dvorak of 22 years.

Frank’s Interment will be in Coleman, Alberta next to his wife Frances.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
