Obituary for Francis "Frank" Bruxer


Peacefully surrounded by family at the Ritz Lutheran Villa, Mitchell on June 23, 2022 in his 91st year.

Loving father of Kathy (Greg) O'Reilly of Egmondville, Ken (deceased 2016), Karen (Tony) Van Bakel of Mitchell, Joan (Mark) Murray of Seaforth, Don of Vanastra, Mike (deceased 2015), Patrick Bruxer of London, Lori Sheppard of Blenheim and a very special family friend of Bonnie Groot of Hensall. Dear brother of Helen (Larry) Cook of Mitchell. Loving grandfather of 26 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.

Predeceased by his parents Louis and Mary (Delaney) Bruxer, son Robert in infancy (1956), granddaughter Elizabeth Murray in infancy (1988), brother Gerald Bruxer (2004), sister Marie (Clarence) White (2018) as well as members of the Connolly family including Bill and Marjorie Evans, Ken and Shirley Burns, Frank and Patricia Flanagan, Ed and Geraldine Dwyer.

Frank was a life-long resident of Dublin and a devoted and faithful member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Above all else, Frank cherished his family and friends. He was always happiest holding a "little one" on his lap.
