Fraser Park Restaurant, featured in the NewsLeader on Sept. 30, closed temporarily starting Oct. 7 to allow family and staff to support owner Anton Heggen, who is in hospital.

Heggen, who was diagnosed with colon cancer last May, had surgery recently and is experiencing complications that require an extended hospital stay.

"Our family and staff at the Restaurant have decided to temporarily close so that we may support him through his recovery," wrote Heggen's daughter, Maricel, in an email to customers.
