Frank, William G. (Bill)

May 14, 1925 to December 2, 2015

William G. (Bill) Frank of Route 1 Atwood, passed away peacefully on a crisp, sunny morning in the comfort of his own home, with the wood stove on, and the smell of bacon in the air and surrounded by his family on Wednesday December 2, 2015 at the age of 90. Born and raised in Waterloo where he grew up, went to school, married and started his family. He was well known as the owner of Frank's Jewellers in Waterloo, the business founded by his father in 1919 that he carried on and continued to operate. In 1975 he fulfilled his dream of owning a farm and moved with his family to Atwood where he was fortunate to live for the rest of his life.

Loving father and best friend of son Jim, son Bill and wife Heather, and son Bob and partner Leanne. Special grandpa of Brittany, Kelsey and friend Nathan. Remembered by his niece, nephews and Helen Ann.

Predeceased by his parents William P. and Roxie B. Frank and his brother Douglas Frank.

The Frank family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all of Dad's caregivers and friends who made it possible for him to live his entire life at home.
