Frank Ediger passed away peacefully to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at Cascade Lodge at the age of 95 years. Frank was born in Orenburg, Russia on October 6, 1917 to Heinrich and Helena Ediger.
In 1925 Dad immigrated to Canada with his mother, brother Peter, half-brother John and half-sister Mary. He married Elfrieda Warkentin on November 24, 1940 and raised five children. After losing his hand in a sawmill accident in 1949, he went into dairy farming and was best known for his custom baling and swathing. He was a man of great faith and loved his family unconditionally. He was a friend to all who knew him.
He was predeceased by his wife, Elfrieda, in May 2012. He is survived by his children Joyce, Walter (Betty), Ronald (Lena), Raymond (Rose), Janet (Lorin), and many grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
