Frank leaves behind him a legacy, “continuation of his tree of life!”. He will be sadly missed by his 8 grandchildren: Ghislain, Jordan, Nadine, Sarah, Brandon, Christina, Derrick, and Jesse. “Fishing memories with Pépère will never be forgotten as he always found the honey hole! And as he would say “….fish on, come to Papa”. He also leaves behind seven beautiful great-grandchildren that will carry on his legacy!

Frank was a proud owner of Totomenai Lodge on Whitefish Lake in Wawa for over 30 years. He was a dedicated man and encountered many friendship bonds with his guests over the years. Totomenai Lodge was his pride and joy, his solace, his dream come true. Fishing and hunting were his passion. He was an outdoor man who enjoyed life. He loved gardening and was also an avid « Blue Jay baseball fan ». Frank was a great chef, he enjoyed cooking for his guests and family. His fish fries were the best!

May you rest in peace Dad and fish freely in heaven! Until we meet again! ❤️

A Celebration of Life in his honour will be held!
