Francis J. "Red" Kane, 93, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, March 29, 2016. Funeral: 3 p.m. Saturday at Moore Funeral Home, 1219 N. Davis Drive, Arlington. Visitation: 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.

Red was blessed with the love of two wonderful women, Marilyn, his beloved wife of 33 years, and Lorna, his first wife, also of 33 years, who passed in 1981. He had three children, Carol, Candy and Lorne and wife, Vicki; three grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Red never met a stranger, loved to tell stories and could learn everything about a person in the course of an elevator ride. He was known for his silent generosity, graceful dancing, ice skating, love of cookies and flirting with a pretty girl. He grew up in Stratford, Canada, and was one of the last surviving players from the "Original Six" NHL hockey teams, the Detroit Red Wings. Red and Lorna settled in Fort Worth, and then Arlington in 1952 and became U.S. citizens in 1958. Red was on the Arlington Parks and Recreation Board for 18 years, chairing from 1976 to 1981. In his honor, the F.J. "Red" Kane Park was dedicated in 1995. Red lived the remainder of his life in Arlington, with yearly visits to family and friends in Canada.
