Frank was a familiar face to many in the Delhi area as he was a co-proprieter of Radio Shack (formerly Norfolk TV) and the Service Ontario license office in Delhi for over 40 years. Frank enjoyed the people and community he lived in. He also took pride in maintaining his family tobacco farm at R.R.# 2 Otterville, helping sharegrowers in any way he could. He was a member of Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs Parish, Delhi. Frank was a proud shareholder at the Delhi District German Home and enjoyed bowling with many of his friends over the years and dancing with his wife. Former member of the Tillsonburg Golf & Country Club and the Delhi Minor Hockey Association. Frank always had a positive outlook on life, often having a joke to share amongst friends. He was a dedicated family man and will be deeply missed by all. As per Frank’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family service and interment have been planned. Memorial donations may be made to the Delhi Community Health Centre, Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital Foundation or the Lake Lisgar Revitalization Project.
