During World War II, Frank served in the United States Army with honour and distinction. After the war, he was employed by various New York newspapers.

 

Frank often remarked about how grateful and fortunate he was to have acquired so many kind and caring friends here in Nova Scotia, and he wished to convey many thanks to all who assisted him during his disability especially his Home Care workers, Linda Conrad, Mary Jane McDonald, Mary Anne Sawler and Pat Dorey. A very special thank you to Dr. George Burden, Dr. Arif Samad, and Dr. James R. MacNeill, as well as all other doctors and medical staff.

Funeral Service will be 2pm Thursday, February 1, also in Ettinger Funeral Home, Rev Canon David Fletcher officiating. A reception will follow in the funeral home hospitality area.

Because our vision is so important, the loss of it can be devastating; therefore, in lieu of flowers memorial donations to the CNIB would be greatly appreciated.
