FRANCISCO (FRANK) SILVA It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dad on August 20, 2017, with his loving family at his side. Frank was not only a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather but also a kind, gentle person who loved helping others. Frank was born November 10, 1930 on the island of Pico, Azores, Portugal. At age 19 he met and fell in love with his wife Maria and they married four years later. In 1965, Frank moved to Canada to pursue a better life and the family reunited two years later in Winnipeg. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife of 63 years, Maria; his oldest son Fernando (Maria) from California and their children Spencer and Jessica; his son Terry (Maria) and their children Kathy (Ryan) and Andrew; his daughter Adelia (Steve) and their children Richard and Stephanie; his son John (Judy) and their children Jocelyn and Jordan, and his great-grandchildren Luke and Amelia. Frank is also survived by his brother Gilberto from Portugal, and numerous nieces and nephews. Dad's most treasured moments were those spent with family, and those memories will forever be with us. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many friends and family who have offered support during this difficult time, as well as the amazing staff at Deer Lodge 6 West for their compassion and care of our dear dad. Prayer Vigil will be held Thursday, August 24 at 8:00 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Church, 181 Austin Street North. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, August 25 at 10:00 a.m. also at the parish. Interment will follow in Assumption Cemetery, 3990 Portage Ave. This obituary can also be viewed at www.cropo.com Cropo Funeral Chapel, 204-586-8044
