Frank Gauder, at the age of 88 years, passed away peacefully at Hospice Simcoe in Barrie on March 2, 2019. Frank, a proud Canadian, who immigrated to Canada in 1951, is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Lieselotte, son Glenn with wife Irene, daughter Janet with husband Scott Running; loving Opa to Jessica, Jarrett, Nicholas, Jenna and Evan. Fondly remembered by his brother Joe Gauder and his sister Marianne Szijarto and her sons, Frank, Bob and Ken.
Frank’s unending pursuit of his dreams and aspirations built a legacy that will continue far beyond today. Frank’s skills of his trade, his determination, and entrepreneurial spirit were the building blocks that formed Theta TTS, a manufacturing company he founded in Barrie in 1962. Many lives were enriched because of his generosity and caring support. We are eternally grateful for the sacrifices and contributions he made for all of us.
There will be a celebration of Frank’s extraordinary life in May. As the arrangements are finalized details will be provided. Donations are welcome in Frank’s name to Hospice Simcoe whose staff provided exemplary care and comfort in his final days.
