We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to Frankie's family. We are so sorry to hear of his passing. He was such a kind, friendly man and is a part of many of my childhood memories. All the kids liked to hang out at the garage and talk to Frankie. He always made time for us and we could count on him to hand out jelly beans, put air in our bike tires and fill us in on the latest news. As we got older, any trip back to Qu'Appelle included a visit to the garage to catch up with Frankie. After the garage closed we would make a point of stopping at the Shell and seeing Frankie before a trip back to Winnipeg. He was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed.

You will be missed, Frankie. I will always think fondly of the summers I spent working with you at the Shell when I was going to university. Your kindness and compassion for others was evident in how you treated and helped everyone you encountered. My condolences to your family. I hope you are smiling down on all of us, cracking jokes like you always did and are surrounded by your loved ones that have met you in heaven. Rest in peace, my friend.

I’ve known Frankie all my life. He always had jelly beans to hand out whether you were a little punk kid from down a block or a teenager they always made you feel good. He took pictures and posted them when you got a new gal a different car etc. He had the best pop in town in that old slide and pull cooler he kept running at the perfect temperature . Always a joy to talk to he will be missed. My condolences to his family and friends

We’ve known Frankie most of our lives. My first memories is going to Krause’s garage with Jane and buying a pop from the pop machine. He was always so kind. Never a harsh word about anyone. Many years later, if we stopped at the Shell in Indian Head it was always nice to see a familiar face. Frankie will be missed. Our condolences to Frankie’s entire family.
