  • Our sincere condolences to the Pastoor family.

    Frank was a very thoughtful individual and a great nephew to my mom – Aunt Trudy. Having reacquainted with her shortly after my dad passed away in 2002, Frank took her for Sunday afternoon drives, shopping, Pastoor family gatherings, and countless medical appointments. He also drove her to and from the airport so she could visit us in Winnipeg. My mom would mention Frank on most of our phone calls. Whenever there was a significant medical issue, Frank would be there for her! Frank’s support was extraordinary and very much appreciated.

    May he rest in peace.

  • Here I am again … in that message I shared I thought his friend had quoted his name … That was from Chuck Quiney of Houghton Lake Michigan

  • I received a message from one of Dad’s oldest friends and I thought I would share it hear for everone to see Frankie

    “Age and life are a funny, just when you think you have all your friends and relatives figured out: You Don’t. My friendship with Frank was always wonderful, mysterious, love filled, and weird. Like most men we berated each other and called each other names all the time but there was not another person that I could work alongside without a spat and there was no ones’ ability I valued more. In his prime we repaired houses, cars, boats, old commercial buildings and had fun doing it. We worked on electrical, plumbing, roofs, patios and whatever else came up. Frank dropped everything the help us move to Michigan back in 1977 and would come up to help whenever he could. Canadians seem form deeper friendships than Americans, but Canadians do not talk about their feelings and their lives as much. I knew Frank as well as anyone, but I wish I had known him better. We shared our first drink in my house on Dover St. We raced a Honda and a Volkswagen in front of Franks College Ave. House. We nearly got beat up in Gobels on Halloween night. I was there when Frank tore out a Bathroom to build a CB room, went looking for UFOs in the dark of night after he woke up the kids threw and put them in the car, when he had his first mini stroke in Gaylord, Michigan and many more times. It was a long and a great time. I am sorry to see it end. Rest in Peace My Friend.
  • May your many special memories be a comfort to you now and in the days ahead.
    Thoughts of heartfelt sympathy are there with you today
