Frank Dave Ranville 

April 23, 1947 - March 21, 2024 

On Thursday, March 21, 2024 surrounded by his loving family, Frank Ranville passed away at his residence in Crane River, MB 

Frank was born to parents Emile and Eliza Ranville and was raised in Crane River with his siblings Florence, Alice, Charles, Lambert Jr, Josephine, Nancy and Doris
He attended Crane River School and made numerous childhood friends along with new friends throughout his adult life.  

Frank married Eileen Moar and they had 3 children; Chad, Myrna and Chris.  He then went on to live with his companion Delia Erickson for 25 years.  They raised all of their children together Chad, Myrna, Chris, Robert, John, Christopher E, Geoffrey, Michael, Tracy and Dean in Cranberry Portage, MB 

Frank worked hard to provide for his family.  At a young age, Frank worked in the mine in Uranium City, SK and served as a constable in the community of Crane River. Following a move to Cranberry Portage, Frank worked as a counsellor for Frontier Collegiate. His next move was to The Pas, MB where he drove cab and worked as a respite worker for CFS.  Frank worked as a Cable Ferry Operator in Cross Lake, MB until 2004.  In 2007, Frank decided to move back home to Crane River where he drove the Headstart bus until retirement.  

Frank loved his bingo, playing guitar and singing.  He was a handiman of any project that was thrown his way.  His main passion was to sit outside by the fire, have a beer and talk about the old days.
