Dyrgas, Frank Joseph.

Born October 6, 1934, Canmore, Alberta. Died January 24, 2018, Kamloops, B.C.

Frank was born to Frank and Rose, at home, on the banks of the Bow River, 83 years ago, the eighth of ten children. Survived by his wife of almost 60 years, Barbara, daughters, Wendy Leskosek and Sharon (David) Perras. Grandchildren, Corina (Scott) Lecours, Joshua Leskosek, Jaime (Tyler) Nowell and step grand daughter, Charmaine Perras. Great grandchildren, Mathieu and Alexis Lecours (and their father Stephane), and Kaylee Nowell. Sister, Caroline Tyson and brother Leon (Vera), and sister’s in law, Patricia Dyrgas and Patricia Thompson. Also survived by one cousin, Doreen Wilson, and nieces and nephews, too numerous to mention, but greatly loved. Predeceased by seven siblings, Mary Salvaag, Mike, Anton, Elsie Armstrong, Frances Love, Pauline Ullrich, Joe, also, son-in-law, Randy Leskosek and an infant grand daughter.

Canmore was home for 73 years until a move to Kelowna, BC, and just recently to Kamloops, BC. Frank’s last few days were spent in Overlander Residential Care Home, (Evergreen). We will be forever grateful for the kind, compassionate care takers there.

A service will be held in Canmore, in the Spring, when Frank’s ashes will be placed in the columbarium, facing the mountains. In lieu of flowers a donation to a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
