It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Frank Belanger at the age of 93 years.
Frank was born August 1, 1927, raised in Lindale and made his life in the Drayton Valley area. He spent a lifetime working in oilfield construction; however, his real passion was for his family. He cherished being a grandpa and his face was illuminated whenever you saw them together. Frank was a wonderful husband, father, brother and grandfather and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was a kind, sweet gentleman with a boundless sense of humor, a keen interest in camping and a love of his dogs.
Frank will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 72 years, Jessie; his brother Bob Belanger; children, Ron Belanger (Sharon), Marilyn Curd (Bob), Larry Belanger (Cheryl), Lorraine Ellis (Elmer); 6 grandchildren, Brad Degen, Darren Degen (Lee Ann), Brent Belanger (Star), Mike Ellis (Justine), Courtney Webber (Andrew), Chelsea Graham (Darrell); and 13 great grandchildren as well as by many friends.
Frank was predeceased by his parents Frank and Joan Belanger, in-laws James and Jean Robson; sister, Bernice Horsman, and son-in-law Marvin Degen.
Cremation has taken place and no formal funeral service will be held.
The family would like to express their heart-felt gratitude for the care and support given by Dr. Giddey and the amazing staff at Drayton Valley Long Term Care for their extraordinary care and compassion shown to Frank during the time he spent there.
