Frank Rasler (1927-2011)

(published on April 05, 2011)

FRANK RASLER December 27, 1927 - March 28, 2011 With much sorrow Lynn, Frank and Kim announce the passing of their beloved father. Frank was predeceased by his wife Patricia June. Left to mourn are his children and their spouses: Sean, Heather and Al; grandchildren Brendan, Blake, Allan, Liam, Alivia. Frank enjoyed his energetic career as CBC Public Affairs Producer. When retired he and June volunteered with CESO and traveled the world teaching broadcasting in developing nations. Frank had a lifelong love of traveling, reading and world events, but he always maintained his greatest love was his wife and children. Up until his last days he enjoyed visits and calls from his children above all else. A Celebration of Frank's life will be held at Dakota House, 1145 Dakota, April 7 at 7:00 p.m.
Long-time chess player Frank Rasler passed away. His last CFC tournament was the August 2000 TNT , however I did see him at some of our casual events, such as Chess in the Park. I met him in the 1970s at the Cornish Library;  a more pleasant man you will never know.
