It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Frank Viteychuk on January 25, 2024 at the age of 81. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Dianne; son Dennis (Heather); Daughter Trudy (Marc); grandchildren Kaitlyn, Hannah, Hailey and Shawn; twin sister Francis (Art); brother Roy (Sandy) and many bother/sister in-laws, nieces and nephews, and a large circle of close friends.

Frank was passionate about education and was a graduate of the University of Alberta (B.Sc. & B.Ed.). He went on to become a teacher for 32 years and was fondly known as “Mr. V” to his students. He also tutored many friends and family through math and science.

Throughout his life Frank enjoyed playing many sports including baseball, hockey, swimming curling and golf. He was handy, and generously gave his time to build decks, paint houses and repair just about anything around our houses for the bargain price of a beer. He had a green thumb as evidenced by his beautiful yard and bountiful vegetable garden. If you visited his home you could always expect a “re-ward”, great conversation and laughs, sometimes while roasting 'kubie' around his fire pit.

To say that Frank was dedicated to his grandchildren would be a gross understatement. Together with Dianne he attended, without exception, every dance and gymnastics competition, swim meet, ball hockey game and school concert. Frank had a gift with words and left his grandchildren a legacy of detailed letters that highlighted important moments in their lives leading up to adulthood and instilled an early appreciation for investing small amounts of money early to grow acorns into great oaks.

Frank’s proudest moments involved those spent with family and friends. He loved the gatherings that featured card games, ping pong tournaments, and scavenger hunts that were usually made a bit more interesting with a little wager like “crib for a buck”. He loved to travel with the love of his life to favorite destinations such as Fairmont, Vegas and Palm Springs. Throughout these good times he captured the special moments into collections of slide shows that are now priceless reminders of his love of family and friends.

A private family celebration will be held at a time to be determined.
