BUTTL, Frank

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Frank Sebastian Buttl on January 30, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. Frank is predeceased by Mary (2009), his dear wife and partner of 57 years. He is also predeceased by his parents, Catherine and George Buttl. Frank was a devoted and supportive father to Monica and Warren Kennedy, Brenda and Paul Remark, and Douglas and Monica Buttl. He was a kind and gentle grandfather to Trevor, Brianne, Andrea, Monica, Rita, Marshall and Joshua. He will always be known as Great Grandpa "Puddle" to Colton, Chloe, Cohen, Charlie and Iris. Frank will be missed by his two doting sisters, Mary Wilhelm and Julia Banda and many nieces and nephews. Among Frank's passions were farming, fishing, working in his shop and garden and playing cards with family and friends. He had a very special place in his heart for the time spent laughing, joking and working with his fun-loving nephews. Frank was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and St. Michael's Parish for many years. Frank will be remembered by friends and neighbours for his generosity, honesty and work ethic. The family would like to extend sincere appreciation to the staff of Sun Parlor Home for their gentle compassion and dedicated service. We will be forever grateful.
