Francis "Frank" Greening

GREENING, Francis "Frank" - Francis "Frank" Greening of Otto Twp. died May 6, 2019, at Kirkland & District Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 83. He was born in Evanturel Twp. on June 23, 1935, son of Douglas and Florence Greening. On April 23, 1960, he married Teresa "Terry" Greening (née Leroux) in Swastika. Frank was a heavy equipment operator for more than 40 years. He was well-known for his grader and dozer skills throughout the years. Prior to his operating career, Frank worked in the bush with his father as a family business. His interests include building the homestead for his family of 60 years. He also enjoyed spending time in the bush - trapping, hunting, fishing, cutting and maintaining trails for four-wheeling and snowmobiling, and cutting his firewood each year, with "snort" or two along the way. He is survived by Teresa "Terry", his wife of 59 years; children Rusty Greening of Kirkland Lake, Marilyn Greening of Kirkland Lake, Steve Greening (Kathy) of Kirkland Lake, John Greening (Barb) of Kirkland Lake, Carol Trepanier (Dave) of Timmins, honourary daughter Bobbi-Jo Murdoch of Kirkland Lake, Dale Greening (Connie) of Kirkland Lake; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchilden; sister Phyllis Reid of Englehart; and many nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his son Doug; grandson Kyle; sister Betty; brother Roy; and his parents Douglas and Florence. Special thanks to Frank's nephew and wife, Terry and Tilly Reid, and to niece and husband Glenda and Martin Stuehler. Special thanks to VON nurses, Closing the Gap PSWs, CCAC staff and any other associations who helped our family through this difficult time.
