December 14, 1935 - March 3, 2022
The lake is calm tonight.
The warmth of the sand
and the sun warming your face
will keep your soul forever peaceful
with the Lord's embrace.
It is with deep sorrow that we share that Frank Kruszynski, loving son, husband, father, and grandfather passed away peacefully and unexpectedly at the age of 86 on Wednesday, March 3, 2022.
He was born to Stanley and Mary (Oliwa) Kruszynski on December 14, 1935, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was the lifelong partner of 63 years with Alice Kruszynski; previously deceased.
Frank and Alice met while both attended Isaac Newton High School. They were married in September 1957. Frank and Alice loved to travel, explore, and share their appreciation for the outdoors and the arts with their children and grandson. Frank loved to paint, decorate pysanky, and when he wasn't jogging, even at 40 below, he had enjoyed a good cigar at times. Some of Frank's fondest times were going to Grand Beach with Alice. His love for Alice and being able to share so many wonderful times with his children and grandson at the "Lake" either camping or at the cottage was a real joy. Frank enjoyed being able to get out in the canoe and fish for the freshest of pickerel.
Frank was a planning engineer who had worked for Manitoba Telephone System for the duration of his professional career and an active volunteer in the community, including the Garden City Community Centre, Seven Oaks Curling Club, and the Winnipeg Hawkeyes Junior Football Club. He was also a longtime MTS Pioneer.
Frank will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his children, Chris (Pam), Gwenn, Karen (Terry), Glen (Monique); grandson, Justin; and his many friends.
A special thank you to Dr. D. Vergara for his compassion and care of Frank over the past few years.
A Funeral Mass will be said for Frank on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at St. Anthony of Padua Church at 10:30 a.m. with viewing at 10:00 a.m.

I’ve known Frank and Alice for many years and I know they will be be missed very much. The one thing that brings back fondest memories is putting on the regular fundraising bingo every week with him and all of the other VISIONARIES who are truly responsible for what has happened at the Garden City Community Center. If it were not for visionaries like Frank and the others who organized to get the original ball diamonds, the old church relocated, the annual outdoor rinks and ultimately getting the city to build a new community centre, that they volunteered freely at, none of what you see today would be there. Frank was one of the good guys! - Posted by: Dave Grant (Old Friend from the neighborhood ) on: Mar 06, 2022
Sorry to hear about your dad. Frank was a big part of the Winnipeg Hawkeyes football team and a great helper for raising funds for the football team and helped with ways to build the Winnipeg Hawkeyes Club House. Take care. - Posted by: Mike & Betty Debroni (friend ) on: Mar 05, 2022
Frank was the nicest man you could ever meet. I say this with all honesty as I spent many hours with Frank and Alice in my teenage years. I stayed with Alice while Frank worked nights just before their eldest son, Chris was born. I even travelled out West with them one summer to care after their son while they could go out to visit relatives or friends. Frank loved to drive and would take us out of Winnipeg to a freezing arena just to watch a hockey game! I will miss hearing your voice and seeing your infectious smile. God speed Frank, Alice is waiting. Patty - Posted by: Patricia M. Lycett (cousin) on: Mar 05, 2022
