He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Mavis (nee Orme), and their children, Donna, Kandice, and Rick (wife, Shannon); grandchildren, Kyla, Julie-Ann, Kurtis, and Janelle; and great-grandchildren, Aleaha, Anya, and James.
Frank also is survived by his brother, William of Carstairs, Alta.; and sisters, Winnifred Rousseau, Irene Huntley, Viola Plumridge, and Ethel (Howard) Raper of Brechin, Ont.
He was predeceased by his parents, Arthur and Abelone Izzard; and brother, Richard Izzard.
At Frank’s request, no service will be held. Cremation entrusted with Clayton’s Funeral Directors.
