In Loving Memory

Francis “Frank” George Poirier November 15, 1928-November 1, 2018

Frank Poirier passed away November 1, 2018, at Creekside Landing, two weeks shy of his 90th birthday.

Frank was also the loving uncle of Anne Cameron (Greg Pagan), Kathy Cameron (Rene Noel), Brandon and Trevor Rainville, and Sam Pagan. He was predeceased by his parents: Francis and Lillian Poirier and was a beloved brother to his predeceased siblings: Charles, Ralph, and Rose Marie Cameron (William).

He worked for many years for Hydro across Canada. Once retired, he and a friend built a sail boat together then Frank sailed alone for a short time before docking at Malibu Camp for the night. One night turned into 15 years at Malibu Camp where he found his passion and new family working with the staff and “Young Life” teens, off the coast of Vancouver doing maintenance year round. Then he found the little town of Fauquier, BC where he made many close friends, took care of the community center, Catholic Church and his neighbors.

The family would like to thank Dr. Perrier and the staff at Creekside Landing for their care and compassion.

Frank... wow, never knew he was a Francis. Francis doesn't quite fit this man who shot a bear right in front of me and then dragged it into the inlet. Frank was Malibu... you wanted to please him, you wanted to work hard for him, you just were in awe of how much this man knew. I always knew that he was quite fond of Malibu when NONE of us were there... he loved us, but he loved a quiet camp as well. Well done good and faithful one! Sco

Well boys! Tea time?

I have lots of great memories of Frank. Many of course involve tea time. Frank always sat in the same spot, and his tea bag would come out of his mug and onto the cedar window ledge. It was part of the routine.

I remember trips up the waterline. It always seemed that the young guys had to work hard to keep up to a 65 year old. He was tough and wirey.

Frank has lots of tricks gathered over a lifetime. He was always willing to share his knowledge. He taught me how to parbuckle a steel fuel tank up a hill.

Frank liked to get up early. If you were the ‘all nighter’, you had better not be sleeping in the warm sheets down in the laundry under Sitka when he walked in at 5:00 am!

I look forward to seeing Frank in Heaven.

Frank was a dear friend and cohert up at Malibu, not just a caretaker but a great character, grandfather figure to our young children, resourceful, kind, quirky, intelligent, hardworking and talented. He holds a huge piece of all our hearts.

Life at Malibu was not the same after Frank retired, we loved this dear man.
