LAFRAMBOISE- Norman Francis “Frank”


Passed away peacefully at the North Bay Regional Health Center on Friday January 25, 2019, while in his 86th year.  For the past 64 years Frank has been the devoted and loving husband of Patricia (nee Barkell). The proud and loving father of David, Sandra, Richard (Cathy) and Shelley Karn (Dennis), he will also be sadly missed by his grandchildren Kerri (Alain), Crissy, Craig (Jesse), Keith, Kyle (Dayan), Justin, April, Tanya and Julie, and his great grandchildren Dalainey Noah, Madison, Bailey, Cohen, Rhys, Rylan, and Ignacio.  Frank was predeceased by his mother Laura and his brother Romeo (Bud) and his sister Joan.  A long time employee of the ONR Frank retired in 1988 as a supervisor of the work train.   In keeping with his wishes his body will be cremated. No visitation or services will be held.  The family will hold a private celebration of life at a later date. His family are especially grateful for the care provided by Dr. Alldred, Dr. Bowker, Dr. Herst, Dr. Locke and the VON.  In lieu of flowers, if you would like to honor Frank’s memory with a memorial donation, please consider the Nipissing Serenity Hospice.
