It is with deep sadness but very thankful hearts that the family of Frank Block announce his departure from this earth and entry into the presence of Jesus, on Saturday March 5th 2016 at the age of 82. He leaves behind his loving wife of 54 years, Sheila, his family; Elloyd Block (Roxie), Keith Block(Decireth), Aileen Block (Randall Slater), Cindy Peters (Neil), Tracy Block (Mike Wickett), along with 15 grandchildren (5 spouses) and 5 great grandchildren. Frank grew up on the farm homestead 18 miles NE of Borden in the community of Great Deer. In May 1961 he married Sheila Hamm and together they raised 5 children. Frank was very involved in family, church, and community activities. Hockey and slow pitch ball were his passion and enjoyed every opportunity to spend time with his teammates. Outside of sports he was in his shop creating miniature farm equipment or wooden models of homes and schools. Traveling to watch kids and grandkids events were always special times. Frank’s outgoing, mischievous personality will be missed by all who knew him. Viewing will be held on Wednesday March 9, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at Dalmeny Funeral Home, 139 3rd Street Dalmeny, SK. A Celebration of Frank’s life will be held March 10, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the Dalmeny Bible Church 406 Wakefield Ave, Dalmeny, SK. The family would like to thank the wonderful people of Rural Home Care and the Palliative Care staff at St. Paul’s Hospital for their wonderful care during this time. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Dalmeny Funeral Home(306-254-2022).
