Frank was born May 15, 1937 in the small village of Toranj, Croatia. His family resided there until they relocated to Germany for three years, before immigrating to Canada in 1956. It was in Taber that they started their farming careers. Frank met Maria Pergar and they were married in 1966. In 1977, they purchased their own farm land, where they raised their five children. After thirty five years of working the land, Frank and Maria sold the farm and purchased a lovely acreage to retire on. A hardworking man, Frank loved gardening, tending to his animals and spending time outdoors. He will be dearly missed by his family.
