It is with hearts filled with sadness and loss, but also with gratitude and love that the family of Frank Walker share the news of his gentle passing on June 27th. Frank was predeceased by his eldest daughter, Kimberly Anne. He shared his life with his best friend, his partner, his wife of almost 59 years, Margaret (McCloy) As a proud, loving father he watched his daughters, Corinne and Jennifer grow and mature and become beautiful women who have given back to their world in meaningful ways. With their husbands Rod McGregor and Dave Crossley, they brought great joy and pride into Frank's life as each new grandchild arrived. Nicholas and Rory McGregor and Thomas and Ruby Crossley shared moments of love and laughter and learning with Grandpa in countless creative ways. There are many cousins,especially Pat Heffron and Terry Elliot, who have shared precious moments of life with Frank.
Frank signed up with the Canadian Armed Forces as a paymaster, but soon completed his studies to become a minister, devoting his life to the service of others through ministry in the United Church of Canada in Kinistino, Sask., Fonthill and Port Dover. His life was complete when he returned to the military as a chaplain where he could give back to the country he loved and care for the people who also served.
