Frankie was predeceased by his father, Braz Augustino; his in-laws, Bento and Effie; his aunt, Milagrina; and his uncle, Sebastian.
Frankie was born in Goa, India and lived in many countries in the Middle East before moving to Canada. Through his travels, he grew an appreciation for photography and never missed any opportunity to take his camera along for the ride. Even though he lived aboard for most of his life, he never forgot his traditions and Goan culture especially in cooking. Frankie will always be remembered for being a source of strength and compassion by his family and friends.
The family would like to thank the Emergency staff at the Peter Lougheed Centre.
