Frank was born on January 24, 1914 in Liverpool, England. Frank and Bett immigrated to Canada in 1954. They were a pioneer family in Kitimat, BC and lived there from 1954-1976 when Frank retired and they moved to Abbotsford. Frank was an active member of the Lions Club in Kitimat, member of OAP and Friendship House. He enjoyed curling and golfing “poorly” and was an avid blood donor throughout the years. Frank was a quiet and generous man who gave many gifts anonymously. Frank was a man of integrity, strong will and a gentle spirit and he believed in fighting for those less fortunate.
The family would like to thank the staff at Maplewood House for their compassion and care, and all of their other friends and family, especially the Bryce, Sinclair, and Anderson families for their ongoing support and concern.
