elevated kEjWD Obituary
RITLOP, Frank – With family by his side, Frank peacefully passed on Sunday, April 24, 2022. Born on October 24, 1933 in Crensovci, Slovenia, he moved to Canada in 1955 to build a new life. His bride-to-be, Terezija, joined him in 1957. Married in 1958, they celebrated their 50 years anniversary in 2008.
elevated kEjWD Frank is predeceased by his wife, Terezija. He was a loving father and is survived by his two children; Theresa (Paul) and John (Helene); loving grandfather to Sonya (Mark), Peter (Lisa), Andrea (David), Alex and Patrick; devoted great-grandfather to Benjamin, Evelyn, Rose, Luke, Lucy, Noah, Skyler and Mayson. He will be greatly missed by his many relatives and friends in Canada and ‘back home’ in Slovenia. Frank will be remembered for his love of bolina (bocce ball), polka dancing, the Slovenian and Premurska farms and his love-hate relationship with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
