Frank Gerry Bince, of Fortune Cove, PEI, age 77, passed away peacefully at Prince County Hospital, on September 29, 2023. 

Frank, fondly known as "Cranky Franky", was born to parents, Gus and Eileen, on August 22, 1946, in Queensville, Ontario. Frank's career started at Johnson Controls, and later moved on to the Toronto School Board, where he and his late wife, Linda, raised their family. In 2011 Frank moved to PEI, and in 2012 married Val, where they started their next chapter in life. Frank loved a good card game, the ocean, and sailing slowly through the Cascumpec Bay on his boat, "The Little One". Frank loved listening to  good jokes, handing out a few himself. He was always up for adventures, and exploring the trails of the Maritimes, with Val and their friends on their side-by-sides. Frank was the king of hospitality, with endless food and entertainment. He was a proud Christian, with a strong faith in God. Frank enjoyed attending his daily visits to the Alberton Bakery, where he met up with wonderful friends, who he thought a lot of. Frank had a way to make friends like no other, and if you were within his circle, you were considered pretty lucky. Frank had the biggest heart, who touched many. 

Frank was the loving husband to Velma, father to Shantel (Amin Komeili) Bince, Shawnna (Howard) Brice, and Stacey (Adam Kirk) Bince, stepfather to Heidi Mallett, Michelle (Scott) Gamble, and Travis (Vanessa) Mallett, and wonderful Pepe to Max, Maggie, Paige, Brooke, Maddie, and Luke, and Papa to Mackenzie, Seamus, Mavric, and Maguire, who he was very proud of.

Frank was a loving brother to Jim Bince. Frank also leaves behind his loving niece and nephew, Ryan (Sarah) Bince, and Lisa (Matt) Higgins, and their families. 

Predeceased by his first wife, Linda, parents, Gus and Eileen, and sister-in-law, Karen Bince.

The family would like to follow Frank's legacy by always helping others out.

Resting at the Rooney Funeral Home and Chapel, Alberton. Visiting hours Tuesday 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Funeral Wednesday afternoon from the Alberton Baptist Church, for funeral service at 3 p.m., Rev. Ross Morrison officiating. Interment to take place later at the Sacred Heart Cemetery, Alberton.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to West Prince Hospice, or the Diabetes Association, will be gratefully appreciated.
