It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Francis “Frank” William Bisson, at Pinecrest Manor in Lucknow, Monday, Jan. 21, 2019, at the age of 87. Frank was predeceased by his beloved wife, Mary Jane (nee Kilpatrick), in 2002; one brother, John; and one daughter-in-law, Heather (Ken). Loving father of his four sons, KC “Ken” of Orleans, Robert (Kim) of Kincardine, Jeffery (Janet) of Hamilton, and James (Kathy) of Mississauga. Dear grandfather of Kieran, Jessica (Simon), Sam, Calvin, Christopher and Kassandra; and great- grandfather of Weston. He will be missed by his brother, Jim (Jeannine); as well as many nieces and nephews. Before he moved to the Kincardine area in 2017 to be closer to family, Frank was a long-time resident of Elliot Lake, working as a projectionist, property manager and, finally, an electrician at Rio Algom. He will be remembered by his friends and family, for his sense of humour and willingness to always lend a hand. According to Frank’s wishes, he has been cremated. A service for family and friends will be held in Elliot Lake at a later date. Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or St. Joseph’s General Hospital, would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy, and can be made through the funeral home (519-396-2701).
