I had the privilege in knowing this man, who is going to be deeply missed.
My niece Christie became a dancer at the longhouse. This is when I started to attend, supporting her and the house whatever way I could, whether it was buying paper plates or a bag of mush. When the babies were allowed to go home, Frank stood on the floor and said a few words. He thanked me for being there for my niece. This I will always remember. I'll miss stopping by to say hi or to sit and watch the Canucks game. You are no longer in pain. You'll forever live in our hearts and on our minds.

Dr. Frank Malloway, Siyemches. He was my uncle,dad,mentor. He would be someone that I would go and talk to when I needed answers spiritually. He has always helped me in life. He was surely "Smelalh" which means worthy person, or rich person. He was very very humble and kind person, everyone else came first before himself. I would like my family know, that uncle meant the world to me. Loved our talks, he had the answers for me always.

Today we made our last walk with the great Frank Malloway. My heart is with my spiritual family. He gave us alot of beautiful memories that will be carried on for the rest of our days. My sister and I were the last babies to leave the winter of 03/04. We had almost finished the box of oranges sitting on the table. Papa walks in with a new full box and says baby girls can't leave until all these oranges are finished. We looked at each other and smiled said.... Hooo. He always loved us always taught us always put us first. His shoes were big his heart even bigger. Loved unconditionally and told me to never be scared always love and never hold on to negativity. Keep praying and listen to the spirit as they are the ansestors of our people. To keep the teachings in your heart and they will never be lost. I will miss the love he shared with me and my family. But I will always carry on the way he taught. RIP uncle/ papa Frank until we meet again. ♥️

All my relations, papa7 was my friend, teacher, guidance counselor, leader and extended grand father.
Papa7 excepted me with out question or judgement.
Papa7 always had the right advice, the right answers.
Papa7 helped me achieve my second chance with life, he helped me do what I needed to do to make things right with my past.
Papa7 gave me a purpose, offered me a place to be, a place to go.

It was an honour to have walked beside him , he had made me a better man and has helped me gather the courage to live life indigenously and live with the purpose.

I love you Papa7,
thank you for everything .
I know your not gone your just somewhere else for now, until we meet again.

Condolences to the Family from Karl Leon , Beverly Charlie and the Girls.

Such a great man. His leadership, mentorship will be missed.

My fondest memory is meeting Frank and Mary at the PNE year after year at the free concert stage. One year Frank and Mary were sitting in wheelchairs in the front row. We approached them concerned to see them in wheelchairs. Frank Shh'd me and said "we get the wheel chairs from the service desk so we can get the best seats in the house." Sneeky bugger.

All my relations to the family.
