||FRANK BRAUN, beloved husband of Margaret E. Braun of Lethbridge, passed away at the Edith Cavell Care Centre on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at the age of 71 years.

Frank was born in Swift Current, SK on October 1, 1939. He lived there until 1962 when, after marrying Mom, they started on their life long quest to be ‘residents of Western Canada’. Moving on average every two years and living in SK, AB, NWT and BC, they settled in Picture Butte and then Lethbridge. Frank worked as a heavy duty mechanic and closed out his career at the Alberta Environment Shop.
Dad’s hobbies were varied. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing, hiking, amateur ham radio, wood turning and crafting. We will all miss his famous Friday night BBQ steak.
