April 6, 1934 – May 20, 2020
Frank Peres passed away on May 20, 2020 from COVID-19 at the age of 86.
Beloved husband of the late Doris (DeSa) Peres, cherished father to Maria (called to Heaven shortly after her birth), Collin, Clinton and Ian, treasured father-in-law to Susan and Maria, adored Papa to Kaylea, Mitchell, Sarah and David and dearest uncle, cousin and friend to countless individuals.
Our Dad is reunited in Heaven with Mom, our sister Maria, his mother Clementina, father Fremiot, brother Cyril and all the deceased members of the Peres and DeSa families.
Dad made innumerable sacrifices to allow our family to have a better life in Canada. His convictions and charitable teachings made the world a better place.
He can rest in peace knowing that we will carry on the spiritual and moral values he instilled in us.
Dad lit up rooms into which he walked and his life force has been permanently imprinted on the people who had the privilege of knowing him.
Relatives and friends across the world continue to pray for Dad and will dearly miss him.
Dad we love you. Your spirit will live on in us forever.
Until we meet again…
A private virtual service was held for the immediate family on May 22, 2020.
We prayed over Dad’s casket with Father Bertrand, who blessed and committed Dad’s body to God prior to cremation.
The family will hold a Celebration of Life once restrictions are lifted.
We thank our family and friends for their prayers and support.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to your local food bank in Dad’s name.
Kaylea has set up a Facebook fundraiser for a local charity in honor of Nana and Papa:
All Our Love,
Collin, Susan, Kaylea and Mitchell
Ian, Maria, Sarah and David
