SEKELA, Frank John

Posted by on September 30, 2018

Frank John Sekela passed in peace surrounded by his loved ones Monday, September 24th, 2018 at age 85.  Born in Windsor, Ontario in 1933 to Czechoslovakian parents, Nicholas and Eva, he was the youngest of four siblings; Anne, Mike and Mary.  Frank then “Frankie,” entered kindergarten as a proud Slovak who spoke little English.  Language, however, would not be a barrier for long, as he easily won over classmates with his quick wit and infectious smile.  Everywhere Frank went, he would give a kind compliment, flash a grin, and engage in a little playful teasing.  Those who had the pleasure of his company would note he was easy to like, and even easier to love.

After years of “running away from girls,” Frank met Carol and never left her side for 51 years.  Together they had Nicole (Aidan), Jason (Jennifer) and Carrie (Breanna), and later they became “Papa and Gamma” to grandchildren; Oliver, Maxine, Bode, Lila, Frankie, and Theodore, and “Uncle and Auntie” to numerous nieces and nephews.

Frank graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy in 1956. He had a successful 36-year career as a Professional Engineer travelling the world as the VP of Sales and Marketing for Mettler-Toledo Scales.  With a sense of accomplishment, he happily offered up his signature to numerous passport photos over the years.  Frank’s meticulous signature and beautiful penmanship came effortlessly, and mirrored the ease with which he could tackle any problem.  Part of his charm was how easy-going he was.  His favourite word, “whatever,” was always tossed out in response to any question, making him extraordinarily difficult to buy a present for.

Despite being retired for 20 years, Frank never shied away from putting in a full day’s work behind the scenes at the family restaurant, Rock Bottom Bar & Grill.

Frank was an avid sports fan and only missed a Jays or Leafs game for his own children’s hockey or ball contests.  When he wasn’t coaching his children’s baseball teams, Frank was acting as coach and umpire (sometimes at the same time) for the softball league he established in Mississauga.

Frank’s jovial laugh, sense of humour and fun loving nature will be deeply missed by all.

A private family service will be held, followed by cremation.  A celebration of his life will be hosted at his favourite watering hole, Rock Bottom Bar & Grill (3236 Sandwich St., Windsor), on Sunday September 30th from 3-6pm.  Please join the family and raise a glass, recall a memory and revel in a life well lived and loved. Arrangements entrusted to Families First 585 Sandwich St. S. Amherstburg, 519-969-5841. Share memories, photos or make a donation at www.FamiliesFirst.ca

REA, George Frederick

Posted by on September 30, 2018

Born October 9, 1926 in Whitby, Ont. and passed away on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 in his 91st year.  Loyal and devoted husband of the late Joan Rea; nee Dubs (1987).  Caring father of Cheryl, David, Tara (John), and Adrienne (Norm).  He treasured his grandchildren Amber, Walker, Raven, and Bronson.

George retired as the Director of Pharmacy at Grace Hospital at the tender age of 57 and spent the next 34 years happily golfing, curling, and flying.  In his spare time, he maintained an awesome looking lawn!  George was a long-time member of Beach Grove Golf and Country Club for over 40 years.  This was his second home, he enjoyed as early as last year, still swinging a club.

George enjoyed belonging to and working with the members of the Canadian Historical Aircraft Association.  He loved flying; he excelled at formation flying and continued to fly several aircraft well into his 80’s.  At any given day, you could find him sitting at the side of County Road 42 just watching the planes come and go.

In addition to his many hobbies, George had a wide variety of talents.  He loved music and was proficient at the accordion and the organ.  He was also quite skillful with a wok and spent many years perfecting his famous ribs and buttered potatoes. He owned every new cooking gadget that came on the market, which became the kitchen theme of the month.

He was a kind and gentle soul that was patient, held no judgement and always snuck his sense of humor into the conversation.  You had to be on your toes to catch it.

George will be missed by all those fortunate enough to have known him.

In lieu of donations, and in his honor, please seize the opportunity to be kind and generous to those around you and let no expression of love go untold.

We would love to see his friends for visitation Tuesday 12:00pm -3:00pm and 5:00-8:00pm. Funeral service Wednesday 3:00pm at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841. Cremation to follow. Share memories or photos at www.FamiliesFirst.ca

PLANTE, Régis Ronald

Posted by on September 2, 2018

Beloved son of the late Edward Plante and Monica (nee Masse), was born in Windsor on May 19, 1953 and died in hospital on Aug 27, 2018. He was a loving and supportive husband to his beloved wife Maria (nee Cuffaro) and a wonderful father to daughters Anna and Monica. He was a much loved son in law to Calogero and Anna Cuffaro and brother in law to Michael and Bernadette Cuffaro.

Régis had 10 brothers and sisters, Janet and Ken Ouellette, Edward Plante and Tony Piscitelli, Nancy and the late Saul Nosanchuk, Rosemary and Harold Williams, Bill and Janine Plante, Gregory and the late Kathy Plante, Mary Lou and John Carruthers, Michael Plante, Susan and John Bialkowski, Andrea and Tony Kellam and many nieces and nephews who grieve for him.

Régis was a dedicated and loved teacher for many years, recently retired from St. Joseph’s High School. His students and colleagues appreciated his sense of humour and his deep knowledge of religion and philosophy. Through study and travel, including time spent with Indigenous Peoples in Labrador, he came to value his own family history, especially his French Canadian heritage.
His Roman Catholic faith was the centre of Régis’s life from childhood. He faced many challenges, including this last one, with humility, courage and acceptance of the will of God.

Régis was a lifelong learner and teacher. He would want his life of patience, kindness, compassion, and humour to be an inspiration to all of us, especially his beloved twins.

If you so desire, the family would appreciate donations for Masses in Régis’s memory.

Visiting Thursday from 7-9 pm, Friday from 3-5 and 7-9 pm at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841.  On Saturday, family and friends are invited for visiting at St. Alphonsus (85 Park St E) from 9 am until Mass of Christian Burial at 10 am.  Entombment to follow.  Share memories, photos or make a donation at www.FamiliesFirst.ca
