Francis Joseph "Frank" Kane, 88, of Homestead Way, Jay, NY, went to be with his Lord Jesus Christ, February 14, 2023. Fran, as he was so lovingly known, was born on September 8, 1934, to Walter and Lila Perks Kane in Lake Placid, NY.

The couple was blessed with 6 children: Cindy Kane Estes (Jeffrey), of Jay, NY, Wendy Kane Williams of Jay, NY, Randy J. Kane (Rikki Santor) Kane, of Morrisonville, NY, and Andy Kane of Jay, NY. Fran worked for ORDA at Whiteface Mountain, and the Olympic Ski Jump until his retirement in 1990. However, the most important part of his life, was his family. Family came above all his other interests, including his love for NASCAR racing! He built race cars and maintained them for many local racers in the area. He loved camping in the summer and visiting with his family and his many friends who would stop by. Fran was predeceased by his father and mother; 3 brothers and 1 sister, as well as his one daughter, Penny Kane, and one son, Danny Kane.
