Obituary

Born in London, England April 1 1928. Died in Ottawa on November 7 2020 after a short illness. Son of the late Joseph and Ethel (née Orchard) Haigh. Beloved husband of the late Eugenia (née Gruszewska). Dear brother of the late Ruth Knock of Colchester England.

Joining the Merchant Navy at the age of 15 he spent the rest of WWII in convoys on the North Atlantic, followed by a tour of the newly liberated ports in the Mediterranean with the Allied Merchant Navy Pool. After five post-war years with the RAF Frank immigrated to Canada in 1956 to work in Communications at the NRC and then as a Director at the Dept. of External Affairs for a total of 35 years of service. Frank was one of the founding regulars at the Mayflower Pub on Elgin Street and besides being a witty wordsmith in English, he was fluent in Polish, Russian and some German. He was an amateur radio operator and an avid photographer who contributed to several published media projects.

Private interment at Beechwood Cemetery. As per Frank’s wishes there will be no memorial service. With thanks to the staff at the Glebe Centre for their diligent care and sincere gratitude to Abby Hashi for her warm friendship for the past 6 years.

Franks circle of life is complete, what a life and what a circle it was. I like to imagine Genia has rung the dinner gong one last time. Go well.

So Sorry to hear this. My father and mother spoke often of Frank, having worked with him at NRC they remained friends for years afterwards. I remember meeting him at the Mayflower. My condolences on behalf of my parents (Peter and Francoise Brooker)

It's been an honour to have known Frank for the last 26 years and to spend time with him and his loyal caregivers for the past 6 years in particular. What goes around comes around and Frank's great sociability and generosity to others was repaid to him by many more in his final years. Well deserved!
You are missed,
