A life long resident of Sudbury, Frank retired from Creighton Mine, Vale/INCO with 37 years of service, going on to enjoy working with SCR Mining and Tunneling. Frank thoroughly enjoyed watching “movie marathons” with his daughters, long walks in the fall as Autumn was his favourite time of the year and playing practical jokes on anyone he could. Frank will be fondly remembered for his great sense of humour and his hardy laugh. As per his wishes, there will be no public visitation. Cremation at Lakeview Crematorium. A celebration of his life will take place at the family home here in Sudbury on Saturday, October 29th, 2016 from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m. All relatives and friends are invited to join the family for this special gathering.
