May 8, 1942 – March 23, 2012
Frank Alton Loewen, beloved husband of Ellen Loewen of Calgary, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 23, 2012 at the age of 69 years, after a three year battle with colon cancer.
Frank was born in Carstairs on May 8, 1942. Frank was a welder most of his life, and during the last few years of his career he created ornamental iron for his many customers in Central Alberta. Calgary has been home for the past six years. His true loves were his wife, Ellen, his dogs, camping, sunny trips to Mexico and watching the Flames play. Frank was a dedicated member of AA and celebrated 38 years of sobriety on July 27, 2011. His wisdom, courage, and “saying it like it was” earned the respect from many who touched his life. Frank leaves to mourn his wife, Ellen; and stepchildren Darrel, Jim, and Shauna (Murray); sons, Dean and Michael and their families; brothers, Allan (Donna) and Bob (Bev) and nieces, nephews, as well as extended family members and friends. Frank was predeceased by his Mother, Hazel, his daughter Sandy and his nephew Ken Loewen.
