FRANK BOBOWSKI (published on February 24, 2009)



FRANK BOBOWSKI Frank, beloved husband of Florence (Misyk), passed away February 22, 2009 at the age of 84 years at the Victoria General Hospital after many years of emphysema. Frank was born October 29, 1924 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He attended Champlain, Luxton and St. John's Schools. Shortly after graduating he joined the Canadian Navy. He served in the North Atlantic as a radar operator aboard the HMCS Drummondville and Penetang. He was very proud of his naval service. Upon returning from the services he gained employment with (City Hydro) Winnipeg Hydro. He was the first special meter reader to work evenings and Saturdays to accommodate Hydro customers. In 1967 he was promoted to the position of supervisor of meter readers from which he retired in 1983. His retirement winters were spent in Victoria BC which he and Florence enjoyed very much. The summers of course were spent at his cabin in Sherwood Lake, Ontario - his pride and joy and his most favourite place on earth. With the help and kindness of Irene and Jim Carpenter, he was able to go there for several years longer, even with his failing health. Frank was predeceased by his mother Anna, father Stanley, three brothers and one sister. He leaves to remember him, besides his wife Florence, his sister-in-law Rena, niece Joyce, great nephew Jake (Hiro) of Vancouver, B.C., nephew Stanley (Donna), great-niece Carrie of Winnipeg and niece Gail (Dan) who was his house sitter, uncle sitter, gofer and all around Girl Friday - all done with love. He was so appreciative of all she did. Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel. Interment will be at Brookside Cemetery, Walkleyburg, MB where most of Florence's family and many of his mother's family are laid to rest. CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586-8044
