Francis Ferguson (Frank)

1923 – 2013


Frank was born in Scotland on May 1, 1923. His family emigrated to Canada when Frank was just a toddler. The majority of Frank’s life was spent in the Vancouver BC area where he worked for Canron Steel at False Creek. After retirement, Frank moved to Harrison Hot Springs and in 2010, he relocated to Nakusp to be near family.


Frank struggled with declining health and dementia over the past two years. He went to reside in Minto House in 2012. On November 10, 2013, with family by his side, Frank’s battle with illness finally ended.


We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the Doctors, Nurses and Support Staff involved with Frank’s care. A special thank you to those at Minto House who showed such amazing respect for Frank and his family during his final days.


Frank’s closest surviving relatives are his two sisters, Nan McIntosh and Mary Palmer.


One of Frank’s favorite expressions was “love you much”.

Uncle Frank, we did indeed love you much!
