  1. Frank sadly passed away on the 7th October 2021 aged 91 years. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.

  2. Frank (Dad) will be very much missed especially his smile and sense of humour, most people will remember him for his jokes. He was lucky enough to meet his Great Grandsons but unfortunately his great grand daughter was born 5 days after he passed away. We were so lucky to have Dad in our lives for so long and myself along with Ben and Sam will always cherish the time he spent with us notably working with wood in his shed at Ridgeway Road and workshop at Fairways. One of my enduring memories is the way that dad and Uncle Henry liked to trick people as they were identical twins, this confused many people including us at times. Lots of love Dad and rest in peace with your brothers.

  3. Condolences to Gwen, Rosemary & family and Sarah & family on the sad loss of your husband, father and grandfather after a well loved life with friends and family and active service in the St John Ambulance.
    I recall happy summer holidays in Southwold and on Anglesey with our children many years ago when Frank’s stories kept us all amused. May he rest in peace and be sure that his name will live on in love and respect for a long life well lived.

    With love and best wishes,

  6. The vintage farm carts which Frank made were a joy to behold. Suppose them to be made of old walnut then the jokes which he also made must have been carved from old chestnut. Take, for example, the people of Wiltshire eat lots of potatoes – they have Devizes for Chippenham. Sadly, waggons have become wag-gone. Ian Nextdoor.
