Obituary for Franciscus Leonardus "Frank" Vraets

Franciscus (Frank) Vraets-

Passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with Cancer on September 2nd, 2023. Loving husband to Lynne (nee Cayouette)

Survived by his children; Eric, Stefanie & Michelle (Jon). Favourite Opa to his 5 biggest fans; Nevaeh, Kaelyn, Hunter, Aria & Leyton. As well as numerous “fur grandbabies”.

Devoted brother to Bill (Dayle), Anneka (Hughey) & Annette (Ricky). Uncle to Brandon (Allison), John (Lauren), Adrienne (Craig) & Tracy (Norris). Special friend to Fijtie (Rob), Saul & Ellie, Gary & Rose and cousin Karel, alongside many extended family members and friends.

Frank was a man of faith (Bethany Christian Reform - Fenwick), travel enthusiast, meticulous “fix’er upper” (although it could take hours for him to hang a simple picture frame). He was always there to lend a helping hand, whether practically, or with his incredible sense of humour.

As per his wishes, cremation has taken place.

Special thanks to Dr. Phillips & his staff at the Walker Family Cancer Centre and the exceptional staff in the palliative care clinic at Port Colborne hospital. Thank you for your care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Walker Family Cancer Centre.
