In this world you will have trouble but be of good cheer! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

After a very brief period of illness, during which he still intensly enjoyed his last days at home with us, our husband, father, grandfather, peacefully passed away.

Even though during his last years he was hampered by Parkinson's, he was still very active, travelling between Canada, The Netherlands, and Hungary, doing research at the Seminary of Sarospatak, and during the last month completed several articles, a book on theology and literature, and a children's book. He was a calm and thoughtful
person, loving husband, a great and inspiring father, and a caring grandfather.

Until the end he remained himself, full of humour and faith. Tuesday he passed away due to cancer.

Frank was buried on Friday, September 12, in Smithers – a place of which he said that it was closest to heaven.
