NELSON, George Frank

February 24, 1920 – February 28, 2015


Frank lived a long life and died peacefully in palliative care at Abbotsford Hospital. Predeceased in 2012 by his wife of sixty-five years, Rose, he leaves behind many friends to mourn his passing. Frank was born in Ottawa and graduated from Montreal’s Sir George William University in 1950 with a BA. He was the medalist in the history department. Frank worked as a transportation consultant and economist and travelled to Africa and the Far East bringing modern day infrastructures to third world countries. His sense of humor and joie de vivre will be remembered by those that had the honor of knowing this wonderful gentleman. “Go gentle into that good night old friend.”
