Obituary of Frank Henson
HENSON: Franklin Walter.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Franklin Walter Henson. Frank passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, Alberta at the age of 73.
Frank was born in Brandon, Manitoba on April 8, 1947, the third of four children to Albert and Bessie Henson. Frank lived the majority of his life in Brandon where he and his wife of 47 years Marlette, raised a family of six children together.
Frank enjoyed many hobbies - an avid coin collector- and sports such as bowling, broomball, baseball...go Yankees!! and hockey...go Jets!! He was a season ticket holder for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for many years and was a loyal and devoted fan. Frank worked as an accountant for McKenzie seeds for 25 years and then he and Marlette opened their own tax business serving southern Manitoba for many years to follow.
After the passing of his beloved wife in 2019, Frank moved to Calgary to live the rest of his time with his family.
Frank will be dearly missed by his children; daughter Carmel Smith (Bobby-Joe), daughter Velvet Carlson (Blair), son Barry (Debie), son Scott (Arlene) and son Jeffery (Ginny). Frank also leaves behind his loving siblings; brother Joe (Bev), sister Johanne Hamilton (Charlie predeceased) and sister-in-law Gladys (Don predeceased). Memories of Frank’s ten grandchildren, three great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, great friends and his loyal companion Radar - he carries with him. Frank is predeceased by his parents, Albert and Bessie, his son Bobby, his brother Don and his wife Marlette.
