Mr. Alexander Frank passed away peacefully on October 2, 2014 at the age of 87 years. He was born in the German village of Neudorf in Russia on November 20, 1926, the second youngest in a family of 10. He came to Canada in 1950, moved to Edmonton in 1951, where he met and married the love of his life, Irene. They raised their family in Edmonton, and lived there until he retired from the Alberta Government in 1987 after 32 years of dedicated service. He moved to Rimbey, then to Lacombe and later to Red Deer. In the early years, he played the saxophone in a dance band in Edmonton. When he retired, they enjoyed camping and fishing in the West Country. He loved to discuss the events of the day with his neighbours and friends.
