Rexford Fransen

April 21, 1949 - April 18, 2020


It is with overwhelming sadness that we say goodbye to Rex after an inspirational and determined 15-year battle with cancer.

Rex will be missed terribly by his wife Anne, children Jeff, Angela (Tim Byron) and Kari;  grandchildren Katelyn, Robyn and Logan Byron; Hailey, Austin and Riley Meerman; siblings, Louise (Cal), John (Chris), Gloria and Sylvia (Ernie) as well as numerous nieces, nephews and in laws.   He was predeceased by his parents, Victor (1984) & Patricia (2011), brother Owen (2008) and most recently brother in law Tom Jackson (2020).

In keeping with Rex’s wishes, cremation has taken place, and due to the current world situation, there will be no service. A private family gathering will take place at a future date.

In leu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society.

Dear Anne and precious family, Sylvia told me of your loss the other day and I’ve been thinking of all of you this week. I’ve known Rex since I was 5 years old and always felt of his sweet countenance. He was always kind and gentle and I know how much he will be missed. A valiant soul. May the Lord bless and comfort you in your sorrow. Love Glenda (Deeble)
