Frank Merrill Berto

It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of our father, Frank Merrill Berto, on May 26th 2016, after a brave battle with cancer.

Frank was predeceased by his parents Henry and Joyce Berto. He is survived by his sons Nick (Youssef), Paul and their mother Pam. His sister Lorraine (Dave) Bartkowski and niece Joanna (Russel). His partner Mya and her two children Alivia, Robin and his faithful companion Rose.

Frank was born on December 4th, 1951 and raised in Ladysmith. He followed his father Henry’s footsteps working in the forest industry both on Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. He then worked for Nanaimo transit until retirement. Frank’s greatest joy was his sons. He loved watching his sports, especially the Montreal Canadians, St. Louis Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and of course, the Ladysmith 49ers.

At Frank’s request there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC cancer society.
