It is with great sadness we announce the brave and peaceful passing of Frank Reiser at the age of 82 after a short illness. Loving husband of over 60 years to Jo Reiser, precious father to Karen Sayed, the late Linda Reiser-Brown and husband Ian Brown, Jodie Reiser Hickey and husband Mike Hickey. Dedicated brother of Ron Reiser and son of the late Frank Reiser Sr. and Mary Reiser. Always an inspiration to grandchildren Eric and friend Ana, Jana and friend Rob, Stefan and friend Jenna, and Lauren. Son-in-law to the late Stephen and Nadia Lukiancuk. Brother in law to Tanya Protasciewz of Arizona and Mary Koziol and the late John Koziol of London, Ontario. Uncle to Andy, the late Paul, Carol, Jane, the late Natasha, Valerie, Ann Marie and Andrea.
Frank was a retired 30 year valued employee of Chrysler Canada and University of Windsor Alumni. He had a passion for encouraging continued education to his staff and ongoing learning of all kinds to his family. He loved his Detroit Red Wings, Tigers, Lions and Pistons which he enjoyed watching “on occasion” at his friend Van’s restaurant The Penalty Box. They will miss their “Uncle Frank”. He was an avid investor, coin collector and fisherman, and he will be missed by the Windsor Coin Club. One of his favourite pass times was that of wine making, a tradition that he learned from his father. He continued to enjoy both the art and skill of making wine as well as bringing that enjoyment to others. Cheers to Frank.
He will also be missed by his long-time friends, too numerous to list, but including Kendall Brockbank, Frank O’Reilly (who is the Frack to his Frick), Ralph Callen and Lorne Secord.
