  3. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Frank. Frank was a lacrosse player who played for and was great friends with a number of people from the North Glenora Blues Lacrosse Club. For many of us, Christmas offered an opportunity for us to get together once a year as friends to renew our acquaintances and talk about the old and the current times. Frank was always very engaging at these events – going out of his way to greet everyone and get an update on their lives. Outside of our group, Frank was active in a number of organizations – helping out where he could and making a contribution that will be missed. He had a positive influence on a number of people’s lives throughout the years and left us too early in life.

  4. Our deepest sympathies to the family. His laugh and his sincerity will always be remembered.

    Brenda & Family Belinda and my Deepest Condolences and Sympathies to your Family…
    It is with Heavy Sad Heart of hearing about Frank Louis Jr. Klemen passing on Victoria Day Monday May 22nd, 2017 after his battle of Cancer. It was shock. I would like to Thank-you
    personally Brenda and your late Husband Frank for allowing me and trusting me to be involved in Franks passion of Helping Others with S.I.R.E.N.S. The Charity for 15 years as his Volunteer and Security Event Coordinator. It was Privilege to share in his Love for Blues Music and Pleasure knowing both of you two. Frank over 20 years Fundraised for many Charity causes that helped our City of Edmonton Society Less Fortunate who struggled with Mental & Physical Addictions; Hunger, and Homelessness. I considered Frank a Mentor who would listen to my 2 cents and allow me to express my thoughts on matters and give me advice over the many years I volunteered for S.I.R.E.N.S. Events. My wife Belinda and I as well as many others enjoyed some of the Best Local Youth Bands, Adult Local Blues Bands and International Blues Artist – Musicians that Frank promoted at S.I.R.E.N.S. events at many various City Venues over the years. God Bless Your Family In This Difficult Time. May You seek Solice in Knowing That Others Share in Your Grief and Sorrow of your loss. God Bless You – Frank. May You Rest In Peace with The Lord by your side till we meet again. You Will Be Dearly Missed.
    It was a honour knowing you and all you did to help others in your Life… I will Miss you Frank – My Friend – My Mentor. R.I.P.

  7. I want to share my thoughts with you all, I first met Frank back around 1999 and instantly became friends. He was always fair and honest with me, and never once did he leave me without. We shared the love of blues and I am honored to have had him in my life. It’s sad to know we won’t be seeing each other again, but I’m happy to know he is in no pain and off to the spectrum of light and pure energy.
    Godspeed my dear friend!

    • . . . ‘ T R U E – T H A T – Frank truly, has Always & Will Always ‘ . . .selfless benefits for all, Lasting Laughs evermore . . . .

  8. Damn it Frank. I am so sorry that we fell out of touch except the occasional Blues Concert. When we started Adults for Kids Society we were full of ideas and ambition but as time went on career and other interests interfered, but you carried on and never faltered. There are few champions to kids in need who really understood and cared for kids like you did. You truly did have a big heart and nothing you ever did was for yourself: it was all for the kids, except to have fun doing it. I do know that selfless services has a huge reward and that gives me some peace of mind when thinking about our time together and our friendship. Remember that time we took the kids camping in Invermere, BC with Pam? That was a crazy fun trip.
