Frank R. MacRae
It is with deep and heavy sadness that we announce the passing of Frank MacRae, age 82 of Port Coquitlam. He left us peacefully the morning of January 6th at Port Moody Crossroads Hospice.
Frank was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, July 27, 1940 to Florence and Roderick (Mac) MacRae. As a young man Frank was a rolling stone not wanting to stay too long in one place. He travelled many times across Canada and the United States, living and working in different cities. He met his wife Sharon on one of his trips back to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and he knew she was the one he wanted to settle down with. They moved to Vancouver, BC in 1970 where Frank worked in warehousing until 1976 when he joined Canada Post, working for the Corporation until retiring in 2000.
Frank never stressed or worried, always the optimist, a man of his word, he had a quick wit and loved his music, all genres.
Frank was a loving and proud husband, father and grandpa. He is survived by his wife Sharon of 52 yrs., sons Terry and Don (Michelle), his greatest gifts, his grandchildren Ashley, Austin, Woodson, Aaron, Emily (Coveney) and his brother Wayne in Las Vegas. Predeceased by his brothers Freddie, Gordon, Donald, Terry and his sister Sarah. He will be greatly missed by extended family and friends.
Thank you to the Fraser Health team and special thanks to the nurses and staff at the Port Moody Crossroads Hospice. Their compassion, care and respect will never be forgotten.
There will be a family and friends gathering in the spring/early summer 2023 to celebrate Frank’s life.
