Ferenc ‘Frank’ Iszak

October 9, 1928 – February 22, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad and Grandpa.

Frank was born in a small village in Hungary. He immigrated to Canada in 1956, settling in Victoria, B.C. In 1969 he married his wife, Katalin. He worked as an Ironworker at the shipyard in Esquimalt (Yarrows/Versatile) until retirement. In his spare time, Frank built a few homes for his family. He also enjoyed tending his gardens, travelling and wine making.

In 2012, Frank lost his love after 43 years of marriage, Katalin, to cancer, and moved to the Comox Valley to live with his daughter.

Unfortunately our time with Dad/Grandpa was far too short as dementia began to take hold. He leaves behind his daughter Susan, son-in-law Shawn, and grandsons Zachary and Joshua.

We’d like to thank all those that took the time and effort to get to know and help him. Thank you to: The staff at OceanView, the caregivers at OmniCare, Dr. Theresa Wilson, and the staff at 3 South at the Campbell River Hospital.
