We are sad to announce that one of us has passed away. He was a FORCES benefactor and a great contributor to the fight against institutional fraud and prohibition.
We have learned with delay that Frank Anthony Zaniol, 71, passed away at the Greater Niagara General Hospital (Canada) on Wednesday July 9, 2008 at the age of 71.
Beloved husband of 46 years to Janet (Hopkins) Zaniol. Dearly loved father of Leanne (Scott) Russell and Dean (Leona) Zaniol. He was the Best Nonno (grandfather) to Julia and Nicky Zaniol and Chelsea Russell. Dear brother-in-law of Jack (Lydia) Hopkins and Rick Galway. He will be sadly missed by his special close friends Joe and Marlene Orosz and by his nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts and cousins in Niagara Falls, Nova Scotia, Italy, the U.S., and by many others in Ontario. Predeceased by his parents Octavio and Tonina, his sister Vanda Galway, his in-laws Fred and Leona Hopkins, his brother-in-law Harry Hopkins and by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Frank was in the business of specialty nuts and bolts operating under the name Niagara Fasteners Inc. for 36 years. He ran the business along with his son Dean, daughter Leanne, son-in-law Scott and special friends Joe Orosz, Ted Neal, Mike McCrum, and all loyal employees.
Frank’s enjoyment of life came from being with family and friends and his three grandchildren were his pride and joy. Frank also enjoyed being semi-retired the past several years by spending time with family and friends and golfing in Sarasota, Florida, during the winter months.
Frank was also one of those rare, coherent people in the fight against prohibition who, literally, “put his money where his mouth was.” He lent financial support to several organization in Canada, the USA, and in the rest of the world. He understood that "cheerleading" and "moral support" alone do very little against the multi-billion dollar criminal tandem of Big Pharma-public health. He helped the groups that are doggedly fighting institutional corruption – an unrewarding fight not only against the institutions themselves, but also against the mass-media who, out of intimidation or “moral” judgement, have decided to suppress the voice of our movement and instead forward the institutional frauds on smoking and other lifestyles that “public health” perpetrates daily all over the world.
Frank enjoyed good health until just a few days before his death. He was absolutely dedicated to helping senior citizens who smoke regain some dignity in their lives in spite of the "denormalization" of smokers perpetrated by the Canadian public health criminals, which has cost the lives of several senior citizens in Canada, forced to smoke outside in polar temperatures.
Frank, you will be greatly missed, but – wherever you are – don’t worry: the fight will go on until freedom of choice, dignity and respect will be restored, and those responsible for the Great Fraud will be punished.
