Frank immigrated to Canada in 1927, settling in Hussar, Alta. In 1936, the family moved to Gem, Alta., where Frank attended school until Grade 8, then Bible school. Frank and Agnes married and purchased the Loewen farm, remaining until their move to Rosemary, Alta., in 2005 and Brooks, Alta., in 2014. Frank prayed for each family member by name every morning. At Gem MB Church, Frank served as committee/board member and treasurer. He enjoyed cattle shows and sales. Frank loved fishing – summer or winter – a skill he passed on to his children and grandchildren.
