I was saddened to hear about Frank's passing. Frank held a special place in my heart. He always greeted you with a warm smile, a big hug and a twinkle in his eye. Truly a genuine kind compassionate soul who loved spending time with his family and was so in love with his wife Shirley.
I will always be grateful for being welcomed into their home. Kim and I became fast friends in high school and Frank and Shirley's was my home away from home. Shirley and Frank always has an open door and room at their table. I felt honoured to have been a small part of his life and like everyone wished I had more time to spend with him. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

My love goes out to all of Uncle Frank's family and friends. I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Frank. His home was always a welcoming place to visit. He greeted you with a huge smile and always a firm handshake. So many great parties along the way. He will be missed but never forgotten.

Shirley and Frank were friends from the time we moved to Cambridge. We became very close and did some great trips during which we had many hours of fun. Also we spent at least one night a week playing dominoes or dice, sharing a drink and most if all laughter. One thing we will miss very much and have missed since May of 2018 is all the laughter/fun we had. Rest now Frank.
