We’ve lost a very special man. Our husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many passed away peacefully on January 21. He leaves a legacy of faith, love, and kindness.
Franz was born in Deutsch Wagram, Austria and came to Canada in 1953 to travel and seek adventure. At night school, while learning English, he met Erna Rampf. They married in 1954, made Edmonton home, and raised 5 children there.
Franz was predeceased by Erna; his sisters, Rose, Joschi, and Friedl; and brothers Rudy and Pauli. He is survived by his wife Mary; brother Hansi (Galena); children Ruth (Bob) Montgomery, Frank, Evelyn, Christine (Jim) Kelly, and Ken; and grandchildren Tiara (Jose) Rodriguez Núñez, Joel (Christina), Jonathan, Leannah, and Jim.
Let us cherish his memory and let it live on.
Graveside Service will be livestreamed on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 2:00 pm. Family and friends may join by virtual attendance by visiting https://distantlink.com/SerenityES.html. A memorial service will be held when COVID restrictions are lifted.
