Frank Wilzewski passed away peacefully on December 12, 2017, at the Drumheller Health Centre, at the age of 92 years. Frank was predeceased by his loving wife of 53 years Hannelore, brothers Rudolf and Heinrich, and sisters Emilie and Maria. Frank will be lovingly remembered by his sons Hubert (Jill), Reinhold (Esther) and their families; sister Gertrud, family members in Germany, and friends. Frank loved his garden and kept their yard in the Greentree subdivision meticulous for 40 years. He enjoyed his daily walks along the river until his final days. McConkey Park was changed from a vacant lot to the park it is now by Frank in the early 1960’s. The family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Racz, Dr. Tlhape, Dr. Mateer, the nursing staff at the Drumheller Health Centre, the staff at Hillview Lodge, and his many friends. Special thanks to Lynn Zacharuk for her years of assistance and friendship. In respect to Frank’s wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the Drumheller Health Centre or a charity of the donor’s choice.
