February 16, 1929 - February 10, 2021 On February 10, Frank passed away peacefully at his CAMA Woodlands home. He will be sadly missed by Edith (nee Bennett), his loving wife of 69 years, and daughters Gail (Grant), Donna (Neido) and Patty (Jim). He will be fondly remembered by grandchildren Will, Daniel and Crystal and great-granddaughter Alana, as well as sister-in-law Mae and many nieces and nephews in the Czukar and Bennett families, and good friends. Predeceased by his parents Michael and Helen Czukar, and his brothers Michael and George, Frank grew up in north Hamilton and Burlington until moving to East Flamborough in 1944. He worked the family farm with his parents while also employed at Ford Motor Company and International Harvester where he met Edith and married in 1951. In their sixties, he and Edith began ballroom dancing and quickly became immersed in an enchanting lifestyle of dancing and competitions where they met wonderful friends who still keep in touch. Frank was a loyal member of the Waterdown Masonic Lodge for over 30 years. In 1982, Frank was awarded The Medal of Bravery by Canada's Governor General for his heroic efforts to save a young teenager's life in a fiery vehicle accident in front of Frank and Edith's home on Highway 6 in 1980. Frank was also a very generous blood donor during his lifetime. He and Edith lived for over 50 years in the house they built together on Highway 6, famously the "pink house on the hill", for many years. They moved to McGregor Village in Waterdown in their 70s, followed by LaSalle Park Retirement Community and CAMA Woodlands. The family would like to thank all the staff at CAMA, including Jennifer Burgess, for their exemplary and compassionate care for Frank and are grateful that this care will continue for Edith. Per Frank's wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no visitation.
