Franz Herman Dill (Frank Jr.)
December 21, 1950 ~ December 17, 2012
It is with great sadness that the family of Frank Jr. announce his passing on Monday, December 17, 2012.
Frank left us peacefully, surrounded by his family at his home in Kootenay Bay…four days short of “the end of the world as we know it” and his 62nd birthday.
Frank was born in Heidelberg, Germany on December 21, 1950. There he attended university and was in the army. It was while in the army he took part in the 1972 Olympics in Munich.
Frank moved to Canada in 1973 and worked as a carpenter/craftsman with his dad, Frank Sr. Frank became very skilled at his trade under his dad’s leadership and loved working with his dad for many years.
A “teacher” of history and politics, Frank had an incredible memory of facts and details. Conversations with Frank were always enlightening and we will miss the stories and “opinions” he so loved to share.
Frank was predeceased by his mom, Frieda on December 16, 2010, also from cancer.
Frank will be forever missed by his wife Suzanne Dill; his dad, Frank Sr. Dill; sister, Ricki (Jules) Morin; niece Julie (Dwayne) Sol, their son Logan; nephew Randy (Nicole) Morin; his aunt Baerbel; and many friends.
Many thanks to all the wonderful people involved in helping Frank with his journey. Your support and compassion was so appreciated. By Frank’s request there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson, or the Creston Valley Hospital in Creston.
