I worked with Frank as a tester, and for him when he became a foreman in the late 1970's. He was as kind a person as I have ever met. I'm glad that he enjoyed a long retirement, but sorry to hear he has passed. RIP Frank

Lorna, Maura, Torin and Melonie,

Meg and I send our deepest sympathies to the loss of your father. As my Uncle he is very special to me. Growing up he was my role model, with his quiet yet sincere demeanor. My "Uncle Buddy" was the type of man I inspired to be; self learned, intelligent, always busy, and always will to learn more each day. Even though I have been far way for so many years, Uncle Buddy has remained close to me no matter where I am. One of the reasons I live and work where I do was because of advice he gave me. "Get out of Lynn, become somebody, and see the world." He told me that when I first got my job offer from the Federal Government so many years ago.

I enjoyed very much the few visits that we had the past few years, and these experiences will always remain very close to me. Especially learning so much of the closeness he shared with my father when working at H.P. Hoods and Sons, and all the shenanigans they got into together.

Just want to leave with this, my Uncle Buddy was my hero.

Love you guys, and know you will be fine as he now has joined Aunt Louise in a much better place. Hope to see you soon, real soon.

Collin and Meg MacDonald
