Obituary of Spasoje Vrankic

**Additional Visition slots have been added**

 

With heavy hearts and great sadness we announce that our husband, father, and grandfather Spasoje Vrankic passed away at Milton Hospital, peacefully surrounded by his family in his 88th year (May 10, 1934-January 30, 2022).  
As a result of communist oppression, Spasoje fled on foot from his birthplace in Janjina, Hercegovina to Italy in 1958.  In 1960, he arrived in Canada, where he eventually settled in Toronto awaiting his bride Slavica, with whom he spent 57 blessed years of marriage.
Throughout his life, his faith and Croatian Church were paramount.  He was an active member of Our Lady Queen of Croatia Church parish council, moving to Mississauga with his young family and faithfully attending Mass at Croatian Martyrs Church.  He spent his later years as a member of Queen of Peace Croatian Church and Franciscan Centre.  His family thanks Fra Marko and Fra Robert for their words of compassion and sympathy, and for dispensing his final rite of Anointing of the Sick.
He was a hard working and faithful man, devoted to his family and faith until his final breath.  
He is survived by his wife Slavica (Goluza), son Gordon, daughter Adriana (Andy), and son Steve (Marijana).  He was the last surviving sibling and son to +Stjepan and +Vida (Peric).  
He will be forever cherished and loved by his grandchildren Kayla, Olivia, Maks, Alyssa, Taylor and Tomislav.
He leaves behind many nieces and nephews in Croatia, the United States, Canada, and Hercegovina.
The family would like to extend gratitude to the doctors and nurses at Milton Hospital, in particular Nurse Rose for her caring and compassionate bedside manner.  Thank you!
Dragi tata, primio te dragi Bog u kraljevstvo nebesko.  U nasim srcima ces ostati zauvijek.  Dear tata, you are in our hearts and memories forever.  Rest in eternal peace.
