LANG, Frank
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frank Lang of Kelowna on May 28th, 2017 at the age of 87. Lovingly remembered by his wife Margaret of 54 years, sons Greg (Marlene) and Rick (Dolly), grandchildren Nathan, Jasmine, Kareem (Christina), Julia (Carey), two great grandchildren Sloan and Taylor, and sister Traude (G√ľnter) and their family in Germany. Predeceased by his mother Maria and father Franz. Born in Rausenbruk Germany, Frank immigrated to Canada in 1959. He travelled across Canada to Whitehorse, Yukon where he met the love of his life, Margaret. They married in 1962; Greg was born in 1964 and Rick in 1966. He enjoyed his life in the Yukon, hunting and fishing. But his real passion was playing Badminton and he had the honor of representing the Yukon in 1967 at the first Canadian Winter Games in Quebec City. In 1968, they moved to Kelowna and in 1975 they settled in Vernon where they ran the Klondyke Arcade and later the Polson Bowling Center with Frank taking as many days as possible to go golfing with his friends at Spallumcheen Golf course. After moving back to Kelowna, Frank had a short battle with cancer and passed away quietly at home surrounded by loved ones. Our many thanks to the care he received from his Respirologist Dr. Giulio Dominelli, his GP Dr. Michael Hopman and the wonderful caring people at Interior Health. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Sindy Hawkins Cancer Center through the BC Cancer Foundation.

    It is with great sadness that my family learned of Frank's passing just yesterday. Our family has known Frank and Margaret for over 40 years, spending time at a few different lakes camping with all of the families, golfing lots and lots of times with Frank and my Dad, and my brother-in-law Dave and loving every minute of it seeing who beats who at the 19th hole. I will miss his kindness every single time we talked he was absolutely one of a kind. I will miss Frank dearly.
    Our condolences to Margaret, Rick and Greg and family from Rick, Kelly, Ryan and Kyle Yakiwchuk
