Frank was born April 10, 1927 in Vancouver BC.  He passed away peacefully the morning of January 19 in the Shuswap Lake General Hospital at 91 years of age.  Frank is survived by his four children; Mary-Ellen Schacke, Lyle Fortin, Cathy Spence (Ken), and Barbara Rogers (Brian); grandchildren Christopher Schacke (Erin), Ashley Meadows (Pat), Lindsay Brown (Nat), Kevin Rogers (Addison), Stephanie Schacke (Mike), and Kirsten Spence.  Frank was also blessed with eight great grandchildren; Alex and Seamus Finnan, Isabella and Oliver Schacke, Eleanor Simpson, Keith, Nina, and Alice Brown.  
Frank’s greatest joy was sharing life with Lorraine, his loving wife of 67 years who predeceased him in 2015.  They went on many trips and enjoyed spending time together and with family at their summer home on Shuswap Lake.  In his last years, Frank most enjoyed working in his wood shop and spending time with friends and family at his home.  Dad/Grampa will be dearly missed.
