Franjo “Frank” Hamer passed away suddenly on November 24, 2021 at age 81. He leaves behind his loving wife Pat Hamer.

Also missing Frank are his sister in law Sue-Ann Taylor (pre-deceased Phil), brother in law Billy Taylor (Peg), sister in law Glenda Taylor (Paul pre-deceased)

Special family members include Brian and Christine Crisp.

Frank was born in Cakovec, Croatia. He immigrated to Canada December 8, 1960. He went from Hamilton, to Toronto and then to Gravenhurst. Frank met George and Margaret Beard, and began working at Gravenhurst Plastics.  Frank worked his way up to become co-owner of the company and president.  He built strong business relationships in his community and beyond.

Frank’s passions were work, his family and enjoying his property on Lake Muskoka. He cherished his time with his grandchildren, touring the property on his tractor and golf cart. He was a wonderful dance partner and former jockey. He looked forward to returning to Croatia many times to visit family.

Frank always had a twinkle in his eye, smile on his face and Kiki’s in his pocket.
