A wonderful, gentle man, Frank Wolf passed into eternity to be with his Lord and his God on Sunday, October 14, 2012 in Nanaimo at 86 years of age. Born in Slovenia to Kate and Ferdinand Wolf.
He will be greatly missed by Vera, his wife of 62 years, his daughters: Mary Walker (Robert) and Lori Duquette (Marc), grandson Jeremy Walker (Krystle) and their daughter Isabelle, granddaughter Andrea Walker-Collins (Stephen) and grandsons: Chase and Alexander Duquette as well as sisters: Katharine and Matilda and their families in Slovenia, brother Martin, sister-in-law Mary, cousin Tony (Maria) and numerous other relatives in both Slovenia and Canada. Frank was predeceased by his brother Joe and sister Verona.
Frank “papa” will be remembered for his many great stories of his youth in Slovenia and his journey to Canada in 1955 with his wife. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with family and friends and he had a wonderful appreciation for the beauty of nature. Frank worked at Somass Mill for over 35 years. In 1990 he and his wife moved from Port Alberni to Parksville where he continued to make wine and started beekeeping and gardening. Dad has left us all with an abundance of cherished memories of his love of life and ability to live his life authentically.
