It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Frank Vincent Rayman, beloved husband of Sharron and father to Terri (Dean) Hansen and Todd (Brenda) Rayman. Frank passed away peacefully at the Foothills Hospital, on January 17, surrounded by family.
Frank was born on May 23, 1944 in Coleman, Alberta to parents George and Emily Rayman. He was predeceased by his parents, his mother and father-in-law, Dorothy and Leslie Bryant, and several members of his extended family.
Sharing the loss of Frank is his wife of 56 years, his children, grandsons Dalton (Lindsay) Link, Jeffrey (Ashley) Rayman and Chase Rayman as well as granddaughter Kiera Ray Hansen. Also left to mourn his passing are sisters Shirley (Gary) Borgen, Edith (Dennis) Sikora, Jaqueline
Rayman and brother Willie (Jackie) Rayman. Also remembering him are in-laws Pete (Norma) Bryant, Dale (Pat) Bryant, Willie Maurin, Cindy Steabner and Richard Reedyk and many nieces and nephews.
Frank lived life to the fullest and was active in many sports including hockey, hunting, baseball and rodeo. He dedicated time to coaching hockey and ball for the minor leagues.
Frankie’s greatest love was for his family. He was so proud of his children and grandchildren for their accomplishments and for the people they have become. Nothing made Frank happier than road trips to watch grandchildren at their sporting events including swimming, hockey, baseball and motor cross racing. He was there to cheer them on and to coach from the stands! There are many who will always remember “Poppa Frank”.
Frank was loved by many and will truly be missed.
