BUBLE _ Frank Sr., passed away on September 15, 2002, at age 74, after a courageous battle against cancer. Gone to safe harbour where he joins his parents, Olga and Michael Buble, and his beloved Biznona Maria Buble. In his parents home, along with his brother Michael and sister Marie, Frank learned the values of strong family ties and of hard work. Frank was a very supportive person. If you had him as a friend you didn't need many. He leaves behind to mourn his passing his children, Lewis and Amber, Frank Jr. and Janice, Lisa and Edward, and their mother Nancy; four beautiful grandsons, Michael, Chris, Jeff, Tyson and his newest grandson Rob; and four beautiful granddaughters, Brandee, Crystal, Nicole and Kaitlyn; and his first yet unborn great-grandchild due in November thanks to Brandee and Rob; much loved, his brother Michael; sister Marie and husband Mario and their two sons, Antony and family and John; Nancy's sisters, Louise, Joan, Donna, Katica, Lucija and their families; and brother Boris and his family; also his cousins Mario Gallovich and family, and the Radoslovich family here; and cousins in the U.S.A. and Europe; and many friends and acquaintances in the fishing industry. As in all fishing families our lives revolve around the fishing seasons, and a good life it was for Frank, his sons Lewis and Franky, and for a brief time daughter Lisa joined him on the ocean. In a manner of speaking he took home with him. Lucky man. Our Thanks to Dr. Kotylak for extending Frank's life and to the nurses and staff at Ridge Meadows Hospital who were so kind to Frank and our family. There will be a Celebration of Frank's life held at a later date that will be announced by the family. Donations to the B.C. Cancer Foundation would be much appreciated.
