Frank was born on April 26, 1925 in the Stenen area. He was the fourth child of Adam and Sophie (nee Felkowski) Walowski. He attended Frame Lake School. Frank started helping his dad by working on the farm at an early age. Frank worked in the bush in the winter at Hudson Bay, cutting trees for the Ontario Hydro line. He also later worked at Cold Stream ranch in Vernon, BC. Frank was farming and raising cattle, which he loved. He farmed right up until this past crop year of 2017. In his earlier days he enjoyed playing ball with the Frame Lake Rockets.
Frank married Gladys Palaniuk on October 29, 1950. They were blessed with four boys, Jim, (Sandy), Garry (Leona), David (Nora), and Ron; eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. The boys were his pride and joy. He took them to play hockey and baseball, and made a small ice rink for them at home.
He is survived by his loving wife Gladys, of sixty-seven years, and his sister Emily. We will cherish Frank in our hearts forever. Frank was predeceased by his parents Adam and Sophie, his sisters, Mary, Anne and his brother Pete.
