Frank, the 5th of 11 children was born in Langley, B.C. A strong man with strong character, he was happiest outdoors. He was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman, who enjoyed sports. At home when his powerful hands weren’t embracing his grandchildren, they were lovingly tending his garden. Above all, his passion in life was sharing with all his love for the Gospel message.
