July 19, 1950 – October 16, 2019
With great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, son, brother, father, grandfather and well-known teacher on October 16, 2019 at age 69.
Born in Valvasone, Italy and relocating at a young age to Canada, Franco’s heart was always with helping others. He decided on a teaching career and was well respected by his many students and peers. Franco taught many young minds in Fernie, Jaffray and Cranbrook over his wonderful career. His family was always his priority, and time spent will be cherished forever. Franco was so loved and will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his wife Sonja, daughter Lindsay, grandson Luca, son in law Jeremy Falk and mother Bruna.
He was predeceased by his father Giuseppe and brother Olympio.
Memorial donations can be made in Franco’s honour to the Renal Unit at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Services. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com.
